Sexy Beast (2000) 8/10

The plot to this film is pretty simple; Don Logan (Kingsley) recruits "retired" thief (Winstone)for one last job, which to he refuses and all things go to hell. The plot is not what is intriguing, but the performances within. I was completely shocked at the performances in this film. Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, and especially Ben Kingsley, who was absolutely riveting and convicing as tough guy gangster Don Logan. I've always known Ben was such a great actor, but I didn't know he had such a performance in him such as this. I'm convinced now that he could play anything.

Anybody who is remotely interested in gangster films should give this one a look. If anything, just watch it for Ben Kingsley alone.

Sexy Beast (2000) - 7.6/10

The story is thin but the characters are great.
