Movie Info

British filmmaker Malcolm Needs writes and directs the gangster film Charlie, based on the real-life case of criminal gang boss Charlie Richardson. During the early '60s, brothers Charlie (Luke Goss) and Eddy (Langley Kirkwood) ruled the criminal underworld of South London. As he rises in power, Charlie finds himself connected with wealthy white South African businessman Richard Waldeck (Leslie Grantham). Charlie eventually starts to get involved with political crimes involving the ANC and gets caught. While on trial in 1966, his gang resorts to the horrific torturing of his enemies. The witnesses who testify against him are cruelly and unusually punished by Charlie's terror gang, leading to Judge Lawton (Antony Carrick) sentencing him to 25 years. Steven Berkoff and Anita Dobson appear as Charlie's parents. Charlie premiered in the U.K. in February of 2004.

...surprisingly dull...

Reel Film Reviews

Less flashy and overblown than many of its contemporaries, yet sketchy and impersonal enough to keep you entirely at arm's length.

Audience Reviews for Charlie

½

Well made 60's based movie, fine period soundtrack... the problem is the accent. I could only understand 2 out of 5 words, not to mention the incomprehensible slang! No British film will EVER achieve worldwide fame with this speech problem (unless captioned, of course). The FIRST thing you have to realize is that this movie is seen from the eyes of Charlie himself, a god-awful criminal gangster of the first degree. [img]http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT5W68d1yfiroB2kTIvpTeHB4uKSRCpdkBuRrTczlsvipgmtuA2DQ[/img] Flying high. Charlie is seated on the right. "Luke Goss teams up with Steven Berkoff to tell the real life story of 'Charlie Richardson', the head of the notorious 'Torture gang'. In the sixties, London was owned and ruled by two families, North of the river the Krays, to the South, the Richardsons. Now for the first time in his own words 'Charlie' reveals what really happened when he was arrested and tried in what notoriously became known as the 'Torture Trial'.

refined and historic to their everlasting credit I might add.... they do NOT have the mob mentallity. They are too busy drinking tea. Send a few of the families from the Americas and these playboys will learn about mob things properly. The Brits need tutors in the ways of gangland violence. First, their victims in this film all come back to testify against them in court. THAT would NEVER happen in a U.S. court IF the mob ever made it to court in the first place.

[font=Century Gothic]Well.. if you've watched this movie or wanted to then you know its about the Brittish gangster Charlie Richardson. It explores through a court hearing two possible realities, one bad, and the other? Yes, good. The acting, in my opinion, is rather well for an ex-popstar. Everyone does a pretty decent job, except for the swapped wife who was Nelson Mandela's niece (I think). [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]...So I'll cut to the chase. It kept me entertained until the story began to twist and turn. It became inconsistent, uneven and a little confusing. Who's that guy again?....Oh. Just messy![/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]The torture scenes were a little much, the lovey dovey parts were just lame and repetative (LITERALLY, one scene on the beach appears to have been filmed twice), and Luke Goss is a little too pretty boy for this role (appearance-wise). I lost interest and fell asleep.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]So that means I don't even know what happened at the end. I might ask my boyfriend who [i]may have [/i]stayed up til the end.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] :rotten: [font=Century Gothic][/font]

Moderate to decent. Not as intriguing or involved as "Snatch" but paced better than "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels." There's a number of other movies I'd recommend seeing before this one, however, if you stumble upon it in the vidstore I don't think you'll be mad you spent the rental fee. Keep in mind that it is painfully brutal in the violence; for the amount of brutal violence, I did expect a bit more gratuitious nudity. Perhaps I was just hoping. All in all, in line with expectations. It's difficult to find a really good movie anymore; it seems as though I've seen most of the "modern classics." [k]
