Close this street down.

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

Has the kind of edge that too few movies allow themselves...handled with skill and a blend of wit and suspense.
November 7, 2011
Equally indebted to Martin Scorsese, Guy Ritchie, and Giorgio Armani, London Boulevard represents the apotheosis of style over substance.
October 23, 2011
By far too stylized, the film loses itself in this would-be "dynamic visual" style over content and coherence.

Given the talent involved, it should have been better, but I still wanted to see how it all turned out.

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.

London Boulevard is a curio at best.

This film's distributors insisted I watch this with a public audience. For the record, out of nine people who started watching this with me, only six lasted the course. You've been warned.

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.
November 29, 2010
It's a crying shame how disjointed it gets, crumpled into a narrow range of Brit-gangster idioms, picking quite the wrong ending, and barely holding it together from scene to scene.
November 29, 2010
Guilty, with one or two mitigating circumstances.
November 29, 2010
A good cast tries in vain to elevate a workmanlike script in a film that ends up as dead as Joe Gillis.
November 29, 2010
It's a film with plenty of front, as they say, but uses up all its energy, wit and ideas in the first 20 or so minutes, before collapsing into a flurry of boring violence.
November 29, 2010
This disastrous gangster film wastes an excellent British cast.
November 29, 2010
An unexpected pleasure, bringing some punchy Hollywood professionalism to a traduced genre.
November 29, 2010
Brutal and with a plot that's all over the place, it seems we're taking early delivery of a Christmas turkey.
November 29, 2010
Essentially, London Boulevard is a long but not very winding road.
