Three years ago, master criminal Jacob Sternwood escaped London during a daring robbery that left detective Max Lewinsky physically and emotionally scarred. When a failed heist puts Sternwood's son in a hospital, the fugitive is forced to come out of hiding, giving Max his second chance to get the one criminal who got away. But as Max returns to the pursuit of his arch-nemesis, he begins to uncover evidence of a vast conspiracy that may put him in even greater danger than his personal vendetta.

Arguably the worst British crime movie I have ever seen. I certainly hope in reality, not all the London policemen or policewomen are like this : they are so brave that they think their bravery will shield off bullets from the criminals when they are in pursuit unarmed. They are so obsessed in fighting crimes that they believe their obsession will convert the sinners to saints. In between the basically simple story lines is made as complicated as possible, adding in a few action parts and gun fights, and voila, a movie is made. Do not waste your time as the producer, the director, the actors or even the exrtas do, it is a crime itself.

The only reason to watch this is to see Mark Strong. The one character who had some series understanding of what is going on is a female and this was not a movie for feminists. James McAvoy's character was not likable and you understand why but he was no make for Mark Strong's acting or character.

Mark Strong is as bad ass as James McAvoy is determined. I really liked this story. Not one usually for action adventure but this movie had BY FAR my absolute favorite shoot out scene ever. Want a good movie to just entertain you and distract you from life for a few... get this. I don't think you will be disappointed. (I am biased a bit towards Strong and McAvoy tho. Love them both)

Good cops n robbers drama. But could have spent more time on the history of the players, but the story was good

A very average crime drama/action movie. I like the cast, and the acting was decent enough, but the movie just misfired. The action and storyline just didn't shine. Feels overlong and slow most of the time. Not worthless, but not recommended.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

The plot was good but viewers were kept in the dark on the history of detective Lewinsky and criminal Sternwood until well into the film. By then, I was turned off by the self-centered, angry, lousy-shot and reckless detective. What a shame.

A big disappointment. British films are usually well made, thoughtful, well-written and acted. This turkey has the American formula down pat. A confusing, nonsensical, fast-paced "plot" which hopes that you won't notice holes you could drive a truck through. The Brits do seem to have mastered the art of frequent explosions, fireballs, and speeding car chases though. Good cast wasted on this drivel. I could only stand to stay with it for one hour.
