Not as good as I thought it was going to be but, a pretty solid gangster flick. With Bettany and Mcdowell playing younger/older versions of the same deranged dude. It was also a lot older looking than I was expecting. Looked liked it was filmed in the 80's. Funny how some movies from the late 90's, early 00's can look like they were filmed today, while others just have that bad lighting/grainy older look. Fight Club is a good example of a movie that just looked way before it's time, in the visual department. Gangster No. 1, which was made a year later looks like it was made about 15 years before Fight Club. haha. The same can be said for the music in the movie, they played the same music over and over...gah I hate that. Just seemed a lot older than it was...but again, it wasnt bad.

I actually despise everything he just said. I am a huge LOTR nerd who also likes Star Wars, but not nearly to the same degree. Star Wars movies were not close to as good as the LOTR movies. I understand Star Wars will always hold an iconic place in the world of film, but from an objective perspective, they are not good movies. To say that LOTR was just three movies about walking and to complain about the ending where Sam is writing the book is downright ignorant. I'm sure others will disagree, but Smith's criticisms are just stupid.
LOTR movies were so overrated. I enjoyed the first one, and the other two were very meh. I'm surprised Smith didnt mention the fact that no matter how man orks came, they were never a match for Orlando bloom or a dwarf.
