    Holy crap are the old buggers boring. Michael Caine. Bob Hoskins. Tom Courtenay. All grade A performers but put them in a story that plods and give them dialogue that doesn't zing and you'll be napping before you know it.

    I loved the novel. The movie was perfectly loyal to it and did the best it could. It is not easy to adopt a novel with lots of main characters and a non-linear editing. The movie used the same editing as the book with lots of flashbacks. Jack the butcher is dead. His last order is to be scatterred to the sea. His four best friends who has been with him all his life decide to do this last wish of him together. While they are on the way to the sea, we see what kind of life Jack and these men have lived. The cast could not be better. Michael Caine, Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren, David Hemmings, Tom Courtenay and Ray Winstone were all great in their roles. And I fell in love with Kelly Reilly just like Jack did in the movie. Recommended if you like book adaptations and quality drama with top notch actors.

    with bob hoskins, michael caine, helen mirren and ray winstone in it you're gonna be hard-pushed to say it's not gonna have great acting in it. i was watching this one late last night so can't recall every detail about it. the cinematography was very serene. the best thing was how all the big names acted really well together. sometimes you can shove a load of big names in a movie for the sake of it and it totally sucks (oceans 11..lol, i'm gonna get headhunted by some people for saying that)
