The title character of Charlie is an impulsive, abusive, self-destructive lout. But he's also magnetic and funny, and more self-aware than his swagger suggests.

Audience Reviews for Charlie

Ok so i didnt see a point in this movie at all. I dont know maybe it was just me, but it just wasnt a good movie. Some of the acting however was very decent it made me feel as if it was i n real life, but the movie sucked.

From scrap metal to a South African mine, the life story of Charlie Richardson is certainly an interesting one. A notorious 'businessman' in London's swingin' sixties, with police on the payroll. Don't let the fact that Luke Goss takes the leading role in this (yes he was the drummer in the 80's group Bros). He actually doesn't do too bad a job. You can't mention the Richardson's without mentioning their rival ''The Krays' who are mentioned and shown briefly in this film. You can never be quite sure with these type of films how much is still concealed or that what has been revealed is in fact the complete truth. VERDICT: I think it's probably a film that a lot of Brits would find interesting, not sure if it would interest non-Brits? Maybe you could let me know?

I went into this movie thinking I would maybe get a british version of Goodfellas or at least a good gangster flick. Every since Snatch I had been intersted in the British underworld. Unfortunately this movie isn't quite it. While it does give a historic perspective to one of the UKs gangsters I thought it could have been done better. More like the movie "The Business" or even "Layer Cake". Nonetheless, Luke Goss was great. I have seen this guy in a couple of movies (including Blade II and The Man) and he's a solid actor. I am definately interested in seeing more from him. As for Charlie, don't see it unless you're ready for a history lesson!!!!
