Critic Reviews for Best Laid Plans
This might be uneven, but it's well filmed, with a clutch of affecting scenes - a more thoughtful affair than your average Brit fight flick.
Realist in tone, the film lacks much imagination and trundles along too predictably for comfort.
It isn't the smoothest transition but strong performances from Stephen Graham and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje keep the idea afloat.
Audience Reviews for Best Laid Plans
Bit of bulk does come in handy. Danny is a poor degenerate gambler who runs petty errands for a local gangster, but he also takes care of a special needs adult named Joseph. Joseph is a big strong man that defends Danny with every morsel of his existence, and Danny pays him back by taking care of him. When Danny gets too deep with the gangster, he has to enlist Joseph in underground fights. Joseph does well, so intern, Danny does well. Will Danny ever use the extra money from the fights to turn their lives around or will he burn all their dough on cocaine and hookers until they're both ruined? "Say hello to my little friend." "I thought I just did." David Blair, director of Mystics, Bert & Dickie, The Fattest Man in Britain, Tabloid, and The Brown Man, delivers Best Laid Plans. The storyline for this picture was actually very good and reminded me a little of Danny the Dog. The character development was very good and the entire film is very well written. The acting was also better than I anticipated and the cast includes Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Maxine Peake, David O'Hara, Brad Moore, Peter Wright. "I want 73 virgins all lined up in a row when I get there." I randomly grabbed this movie off Netflix and decided to give it a viewing. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this film. I was a fan of Stephen Graham from Boardwalk Empire and thought he was perfect in this movie. Akinnuoye-Agbaje also did awesome playing the special adult. Overall, this is a very nice addition to the genre and worth a viewing. "Mobile laundry?" Grade: B
Worth a watch. Touching at times. Good performances. Great character interactions. And an interesting story, a bit off the beaten path.
