Critic Reviews for The Wee Man

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (11)

The violent past of onetime Glasgow gangster Paul Ferris yields a banal biopic in "The Wee Man," returning multihyphenate Ray Burdis ("Love, Honor and Obey") to the director's chair after an absence of 13 years.

Top Critic

Blows any intrigue by piling on one gangster movie cliché after another.

Full Review… | January 21, 2013

Manages to disappoint in every respect.

Scotsman

It's all rather familiar, well enough acted yet not entirely convincing.

Observer [UK]

A clichéd, wearily familiar true-life crime drama clearly made on the cheap.

Full Review… | January 18, 2013
Daily Express

A crudely directed, typically unreliable gangster biopic, based on a memoir by Glaswegian hard man Paul Ferris.

This is London

On the whole, The Wee Man is a fascinating story well told - the first steps in making a decent movie.

HeyUGuys

[I]n this almost genteel film -- or as genteel as a film about men who intimidate and kill for a living can be -- [notorious Scottish gangster Paul] Ferris is a little boy lost, a rare man of principle in an urban cesspit.

As a whole, it's forgettable.

Guardian

Tediously self-satisfied at best, like a shady old bar bore holding you hostage.

Full Review… | January 17, 2013
Daily Telegraph

An undeniably watchable criminal soap opera offering personal redemption.

Full Review… | January 17, 2013
The Skinny

It never really sparks to life, thanks to a repetitive script and a frustrating lack of characterisation.

Full Review… | January 16, 2013
ViewLondon

This brutal rise-to-infamy flick descends into a smug, profanity-choked endurance test.

Full Review… | January 15, 2013
Total Film

The script's struggle to flatter its unprepossessing vigilante protagonist (he's prone to coming out with poetic self-justifying speeches, too) is unconvincing, if not arguably irresponsible.
