A montagem, a interessante utilização de imagens de Poor Cow e, claro, a interpretação impecável de Stamp transformam um roteiro prosaico em uma experiência intrigante.

The crimer suffers from a slim, underdeveloped script by Lem Dobbs (who also write Kafka), but benefits from Soderbergh's astute direction that posits two 1960s cinematic icons, Brit Terrence Stamp and American Peter Fonda as long-time enemies.

Soderbergh returns to the crime genre, but The Limey couldn't be more different than Out of Sight, except for the fact that it's just as good.

Bien que le scénario soit plutôt conventionnel, The Limey amène une bouffée de fraicheur au genre grâce à la touche bien particulière de Soderbergh.

Soderbergh's brilliant non-linear storytelling keeps us asking questions about this gunslinging Brit right to the end.

[Stamp] hasn't had a role like this since his heyday in the '60s and he shows he has been overlooked far too long.

Those interested in more challenging work will find the film a unique meditation on the nature of Hollywood.

Stamp is the elder statesman of intelligent counterculture cinema, and his performance here makes what is otherwise a lackluster project come energetically alive.

An apparently simple movie that demands and rewards a deeper look.

The film is subtly stolen by Amelia Heinle, joining such actresses as Andie MacDowell, Elisabeth Shue, Betsy Brantley and Jennifer Lopez as the latest in a line of Soderbergh's saving graces.

A first-rate crime thriller and further proof that director Stephen Soderbergh is one of our great contemporary film stylists.

It'll serve as perhaps the final reminder of what was once [Soderbergh's] great career.

What looks like an ordinary revenge tale is livened and improved by Stamp's nuanced performance.

A stylish, hard-edged melodrama, and it's a wonderful showcase for Stamp.
