Shadows on the Wall

As violent as this mob thriller is, it also has a terrific sense of its central characters, focussing on strong emotions and moral decisions. And even though it's overcomplicated, the result is a sleek and very classy.

22 Bullets is neatly acted, nicely made and boasts complex characters that have depth.

An unremarkable French thriller that feels like a Seventies Charles Bronson effort.

Sam Toy

One of the reasons I gave this movie a try was for Jean Reno. I have seen him in Leon the Professional, and since this plot was about hit man and mafia, it… More
