Stands head and shoulders above the late 90s flurry of British gangster movies. Stylish and confident and built upon a fearsome performance from Ben Kinglsey.

It's not just the ironic kick of watching the guy who played Gandhi get his rocks off on sociopathic violence. Ben Kingsley's Don Logan is one of cinema's all-time fearsome, loathsome villains - stalking even the frames from which he's absent.

Cinema em Cena

Winstone e (especialmente) Kingsley carregam o filme com suas atuações magnéticas, enquanto Glazer confere charme à narrativa com sua abordagem bem-humorada. Infelizmente, o terceiro ato não sobrevive à ausência do personagem mais interessante do projeto.

| Original Score: 3/5

The talented Glazer keeps things crisp, clean and purposeful. The only flab on this film is around the waist of its sybaritic hero, a working-class crook who has finally gotten a taste of the good life, and doesn't want to lose it.

This slight-seeming but trim and absorbing British import deepens in your head the more you chew it over later.

Big Picture Big Sound

A film that takes a familiar premise -- in this case, a retired thief who is asked to pull one last job -- and makes it exciting again through the use of interesting characters, elegant camerawork and exhilarating storytelling.

A fun gangster film, telling the tale of you-can-never-really-leave that The Godfather, among others, championed so well.

From the off it's clear at once that Jonathan Glazer will be a ballsy, switched-on film-maker.

An astonishing underwater robbery scene highlights this amazingly staged and acted film. A must-see.

It's nice to see a new director willing to spend as much time with his actors as he does moving the camera around.

Looking Closer

Most crime stories, from Cain and Abel to Macbeth to Bonnie and Clyde to Pulp Fiction, show us that crime doesn't pay. Sexy Beast has more to say than that.

Kalamazoo Gazette

a chilly comedy of the darkest kind, set in a world where sentences are punctuated with profanities, weapons sometimes fall apart at unfortunate moments and people say things like 'You've got very nice eyes... Are they real?'

First-time director Jonathan Glazer tries so hard to be Guy Richie, without looking like he's trying to be.

Ben Kingsley goes way over the top in a departure from his traditionally more subdued roles.

Cincinnati Enquirer

A wry, violent and surreally funny crime caper from British director Jonathan Glazer and screenwriters Louis Mellis and David Scinto.

This profane British crime story is to be remembered more for its intoxicating visual vigor and one blowtorch performance than character arcs, caper thrills or revelatory surprises.

If there's one singular reason to recommend this film, it's Ben Kingsley.
