A completely well made, engaging, suspenseful film packed with an all star cast that gives some of the years best performances! Along with the director, every cast member deserves to be praised for bringing this brutal period piece to life. Especially to the intense Tom Hardy who has quickly climbed the ranks of my favorite actor to watch. And the admirable Guy Pierce is barely recognizable as the movies main villain. This film did exactly what I go to the movies for. It completely sucked me into another world and made me want to find a hotel room and stay there. Based loosely on a true story about bootlegging brothers and corrupt cops in the 1930’s … it’s definitely worth a watch.
