Audience Reviews for Face

  • Nov 01, 2009
    This movie played at the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival, as you know by now I have review a number of movies from this festival. Face is directed by Antonia Bird who brought us Priest, Ravenous, and now Face. Face underworld slang for a gangster. And that?s what this movie is about. Gangsters pulling off there last job, 5 in the group, after job is over the 5 go separate ways until the money starts turning up missing. Ray (played by Robert Carlyle) is our head gangster trying to track down the money and keep it all together. My copy showed it being produced by BBC Films, so my guess is mainly for the crowd in England. Still thought dry at times and what Brit film isn't, lack of luster and action, it does hold a good story line and is worth the watch, 3 1/2 stars on this one, would give it 3 3/4 stars if they had that but not 4. A good rental.

    Well I'm not to shore what to make of this film, its good because it has action and is good with a good raid on a money building and has a good sense of humour but it just seemed like a pointless movie really! Carlyle and Winstone and others are armed robbers and they rob this place and end up steeling 367 thousand pounds but once they've got the money and gone seperate ways someone is going around killing and stealing the money back but they dont know who it is and make some horrible discoverys! Its a good movie but weird and seems a tad pointless but i guess worth a watch!

    A sadly under rated Brit thriller about a robbery that goes horribly wrong, fans of Ray Winstone or Robert Carlyle will back me up. 7/10
