The Crying Game Reviews
Neil Jordan tells a different kind of romance/spy thriller
the film has great talent from the two leads even with Forest Whitaker who's only in here for a short time
things don't pick up until 37 min so you have to bear that in mind
very dramatic, shocking, and smartly-acted

A person who does sex sins, or who worships false gods, or who is not faithful in marriage, or men who act like women, or people who do sex sins with their own sex, will have no place in the holy nation of God.

Though it loses steam by the end, The Crying game has a couple of twists (although the twist that it is famous for is too obvious and predictable). It starts one way and goes out another way. Where it succeeds is that, it has a goon or a henchman as its protagonist, a character that would have definitely been just an extra in other films. Actors Stephen Rea and Jaye Davidson perform well in their roles.
Rewatch review: Still amazing on a second watch, tight script and stellar presentation. All around a gripping and absorbing thriller highly recommended
