As gangster thrillers go, this one is a ripper. William Monahan, Oscar-winning screenwriter for The Departed (2006) has adapted Ken Bruen's book in great style and directs his top cast adroitly

There are all kinds of weirdo supporting players and the requisite amount of bloody killing scenes, but it doesn't add up to much and London Boulevard just feels like its trying to hard to be edgy.

This crime story smacks of all-too-familiar elements and is told with a blandly straightforward approach.

Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley make a dynamite pairing.

A stylish if familiar tale of a man hopelessly entangled in his past.

Screenwriter William Monahan trades in South Boston for South London, only to discover he forgot to pack his A to Z.

A movie is more than dialogue and a soundtrack. And direction is a lot more than making sure all your favorite parts of your own script make it to the screen intact.

In trying to take a bite out of crime and another out of fame, [Monahan has] ended up with more than he can chew for his first time in the director's chair.

Monahan's trademark tart dialogue is as strong as ever, and Farrell and Winstone make for a formidable pair of opponents.

There is too much to be absorbed in too little time and not enough tissue connecting abbreviated, sometimes unnecessary subplots.

The confidence of London Boulevard never tips into cockiness. This is style with some intelligence behind it.

Had the film stood still more often, its stylish gambit would have worked better.

Knightley does an adequate job and fans of Farrell, while they might admire his performance, will probably be disappointed with the overall film.

A great cast and an intriguing premise are crowded out by a surplus of plot threads that don't have space to play out, and accordingly come across as clichés.

Flawed but impressively executed, the movie has a distinct reverberation that holds the formula together, making the mean business of unlawful behavior convincing in the face of absolute predictability.

Monahan's debut has verve and charisma, but, in the end, the tension of a late-night pub shrug.

Has the kind of edge that too few movies allow themselves...handled with skill and a blend of wit and suspense.

Equally indebted to Martin Scorsese, Guy Ritchie, and Giorgio Armani, London Boulevard represents the apotheosis of style over substance.

By far too stylized, the film loses itself in this would-be "dynamic visual" style over content and coherence.
