Frequently repetitive and surprisingly boring, Mr Nice fails to really get to grips with its subject and is ultimately something of a disappointment, despite a superb central performance from Rhys Ifans.
Mr Nice feels like it's supposed to be a farce, but it's never funny or engaging enough to succeed on that level, and nor is it hard-hitting enough to work as a serious exploration of the drug running...
Rhys Ifans is simply too charmless to play Marks, and director Bernard Rose's plodding screenplay is torn between making this an Ealing-style romp (but it isn't funny) and a human interest story with a sympathetic hero (except he isn't).
