Yeah, I watched it a few nights ago.

I quite enjoyed it.

Bill Nighy does his usual, but excellent, world weary schtick, and the supporting cast is excellent.

It is beautifully lit and photographed, and the twisty plot is satisfying.

I recommend it.

Thank you for the review, Barn. I spotted the title on our cable movie rentals recently, and wondered if it was worthwhile. Maybe we'll try it later this weekend.

I agree that Bill Nighy is a very fine actor. I read a review of the movie recently, I believe in the New York Times, in which the reviewer felt that as fine as Nighy is, the movie could be a whole lot more.

Christopher,
Yeah the movie is good, but it does have the feel of being slightly undercooked.

Finally got round to watching it earlier. It's ok I suppose but I wouldn't rave about it, but it's watchable I suppose.

Liked the sets, but was a bit disappointed that they hadn't given the bobbies the correct collar letter for Limehouse (K) and had gone for the standard (P) which seems to get used with alarming regularity. I know it's only a small point and a but nit picky, but attention to detail that niggles at me......

I haven’t heard anyone say that the movie is ‘outstanding’ or ‘terrible.’ Barn’s description seems to be the overall view - ‘slightly undercooked.’ I still haven’t seen it.

It's alright, certainly worth watching. But I wouldn't rush out to buy it.
