Ben Kingsley is "the most savage, mad-dog, frothing gangster in recent movies." -Roger Ebert, The Chicago-Sun Times
Ben Kingsley is unforgettably menacing as "the anti-Gandhi" (The New Yorker), delivering "his best performance ever" (Premiere Magazine) in this high-voltage film that crackles with style and wit.
When sociopathic gangster Don Logan (Kingsley) tries to recruit an ex-partner in crime (Ray Winstone) for a high-stakes heist back to London, the retired criminal refuses, favoring the legit life after serving a prison term. But Logan won't take no for an answer. Tension hits the fever-pitch as this battle of wills plays out in a story that is as funny as it is terrifying.
