Synopsis

Lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) works at a tavern called Marv's in Brooklyn. Once owned by Marv (James Gandolfini), who now runs the place, it's a "drop bar," used by the local Chechen mob to transfer cash in the underworld.

Bob finds himself in danger when the bar is held up by two small-time crooks and the Chechens suspect the robbery was an inside job.

  • 2 stars "Boring movie. I was expecting more action from the trailer."
  • 5 stars "Brilliant low-key crime thriller - a fitting finale for James Gandolfini who, with Tom Hardy, elevate a first-rate to sublime levels."
  • 5 stars "Wonderful movie with great character development. Very intense almost to the point of being stressful. I never knew what would happen next as opposed to the usual action hero successfully dodging hundreds of bullets and explosive devices. People should support this movie to encourage Hollywood to make such worthwhile and quality films."
