Monahan's debut feels like it's missing some connective tissue, but it still manages to standout from the herd.

As gangster thrillers go, this one is a ripper. William Monahan, Oscar-winning screenwriter for The Departed (2006) has adapted Ken Bruen's book in great style and directs his top cast adroitly

It doesn't really hang together, not really. But when a picture is this sleek and pleasurable, why complain?

The confidence of London Boulevard never tips into cockiness. This is style with some intelligence behind it.

Flawed but impressively executed, the movie has a distinct reverberation that holds the formula together, making the mean business of unlawful behavior convincing in the face of absolute predictability.

November 8, 2011
Has the kind of edge that too few movies allow themselves...handled with skill and a blend of wit and suspense.

It at times dabbles too often in crime cliches - as though written by someone coming off of a Sopranos box-set bender - but it is also uncomfortably tense and unsettlingly brutal.

Hard-boiled crime yarn with Irish wit, colorful characters and considerable style.

This crime story smacks of all-too-familiar elements and is told with a blandly straightforward approach.

London Boulevard is a mess, a fascinating, exhilarating, infuriating, emotional, tragic and euphoric mess, but still a mess all the same.
