A gritty, stylish, take-no-prisoners gangster saga. It's compelling, groundbreaking and utterly powerful. A sharp and intense series. It hits all the right notes and then some, it goes places most television shows wouldn't go. Tom Hardy gives a ferocious, storming and electrifying performance. Hardy is a tour de force, he shows he is just a powerhouse of an actor and shows to be more promising as he gets older. An edgy, exciting and totally uncompromising adaptation of the powerful crime novel.

The kind sort of drama.. fighting, yelling, stabbing, f*cking, smoking, drinking.. more smoking.. again, f*cking and again fighting, killing, yelling.. and a large portion of drama, especially close to the end. And at the height of that all is mesmerizing Tom Hardy. I liked the image of this picture, also liked the rhythm.

Tom Hardy becomes this character in every way possible. He delivers every line with a sinister sense of humour and charming intensity. This, combined with the talent of the supporting cast and the strength of the script works to ensure that this doesn't become a Danny Dyer crime drama that takes itself too seriously.

Even if you're not a fan of dark, violent dramas like me this movie will make you want to keep on watching. The very deep and intense acting of Tom Hardy, whose character is nothing but repellent, makes you wonder whether you're scared or intrigued by Freddie Jackson. Furthermore the interplay of the music and camera work greatly underlines the key moments of the story.

This depressing, violent, and often tale is overshadowed by Hardy, who packs quite a punch
