A movie is more than dialogue and a soundtrack. And direction is a lot more than making sure all your favorite parts of your own script make it to the screen intact.

In trying to take a bite out of crime and another out of fame, [Monahan has] ended up with more than he can chew for his first time in the director's chair.

Monahan's trademark tart dialogue is as strong as ever, and Farrell and Winstone make for a formidable pair of opponents.

There is too much to be absorbed in too little time and not enough tissue connecting abbreviated, sometimes unnecessary subplots.

A great cast and an intriguing premise are crowded out by a surplus of plot threads that don't have space to play out, and accordingly come across as clichés.

Monahan's debut has verve and charisma, but, in the end, the tension of a late-night pub shrug.

London Boulevard is like a fancy, retro-styled pocket watch that someone accidentally broke and tried to reassemble with only a vague idea of clockwork.

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