About this movie

Jonathan Glazer, multi-award winning commercial and pop promo director, makes his feature film debut with a cutting edge, adult love story that is not afraid to show the scars of intimacy and raise personal stakes to a life threatening crescendo. Ex-villain Gal Dove (Ray Winstone) has served his time behind bars and is blissfully retired to a Spanish villa paradise with the wife he adores. The idyll is shattered by the arrival of his nemesis Don Logan (Ben Kingsley), who is intent on persuading Gal to return to London for one last big job. Desperate not to sacrifice his enchanted existence, Dove is drawn into a shocking and explosive battle of wills with Logan, and takes part in a sensational underwater heist, risking everything to protect the woman he loves.

Roundabout an A Great film, with top quality acting. Ben Kingsley makes that movie even greater while providing needed boost whenever he's even mentioned. This is also a testament to the actors, and director since the actual Film Script has a different take. The film turned out a masterpiece - somewhat unsung however.

The best bad-guy-wants-out movie ever. Kingsley along with Ray Winstone at their best. Jonathan Glazer is a god. A god.
