been waiting for this to drop in price for a long time, excellent movie if you can take the swearing .. lol

Award-winning Jonathan Glazer presents his feature film debut with this lushly photographed, expertly written, and brilliantly performed convention-defying gangster film. Sexy Beast jettisons the slickness of the "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" school in favor of intricate character development. In its opening shot, Gary "Gal" Dove (Ray Winstone)--a big-bellied ex-gangster with a cockney accent--is sunning himself by the pool at his luxe villa in Spain, when a gigantic boulder hurtles down a hillside, almost killing him. The near miss serves as a troublesome portent, but it hardly affects Gal, who is immersed in his tranquil life with wife Deedee (Amanda Redman), who he adores with earnest fervor. However, Gal's peace is soon shattered by the arrival of Don Logan (Ben Kingsley, using his shaved skull, spare frame, and ramrod posture to pose as an anti-Gandhi), a brutal former accomplice looking to recruit Gal for a heist. A battle of wills ensues when Gal refuses to leave retirement, and the frighteningly intense Don refuses to take no for an answer. Glazer expertly heightens the film's tension using shifts in the pacing and flashbacks, while Kingsley and Winstone imbue their characters with gorgeous life.

great film! ben kingsley plays a blinder! includes one of the most tense scenes i've ever seen, the argument between ben & ray where they just keep saying yess & no back at each other!

Very good movie... HOT.
Ben Kingsley couldn't get much further from Ghandi in this role, but his performance is outstanding.
#7
Just literally, watched this film recorded on my mediacentre - weird seeing it on offer immediately here!

Highly recommended,

Geeza

Voted cold. £5.97 for a dead format is high. HD-DVDs should strictly be £2-3.99 and no more.

£6 for an HD-DVD is NOT good value.

Have to agree although not voted. Hmv have spoiled us.
#18
Great film. I love that bit at the start where the boulder jumps over his head and lands in the pool.
#19
Great film - although Ray Winstone, glowing red from over exposure to the sun, in a pair of swimming trunks, in High Definition? I'm not so sure

:)

I think this is true unless they are rare imports.
