Critic Reviews for The Guv'nor

All Critics (6)

This is a slightly prurient documentary, which goes heavy on nostalgia for the good old days of the East End, when big men in sharp suits only hurt their own.

Unfortunately, the film takes an awed, almost hagiographic view of McLean, whose acquaintances included the Kray twins and Ronnie Biggs.

The Guv'nor is very uneven and looks as if it was made quickly and cheaply, but it offers a perspective on Lenny that goes beyond the caricature of the lovable East End "hard man".

October 6, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A colourful and revealing portrait of bare-knuckle fighter and bona fide hardman Lenny The Guv'nor McLean presented by his son, Jamie.

A thoughtful, affectionate documentary.

October 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An interesting and personal piece of work, presented by Lenny's son Jamie, who, despite his own problems and brushes with the law - and what I think might be undiagnosed depression - is engaging, intelligent and likable.
