44 Inch Chest DVD Review

44 Inch Chest DVD Review 



Synopsis: How far would you go to avenge betrayal? Colin Diamond (Ray Winstone, Sexy Beast) is about to find out in this gritty, provocative thriller. After he breaks down over the dissolution of his marriage, he kidnaps his wife's lover, and his rage pushes him to the brink of murder as his motley crew of buddies urges him to exact brutal revenge. Ian McShane (HBO's Deadwood), John Hurt (V for Vendetta), Tom Wilkinson (RocknRolla) and Stephen Dillane (Spy Game) unforgettably co-star in this compelling story that contemplates the nature of love and asks what it takes to be a man.

Review: We love british gangster films.  Anything that Guy Ritchie touches we watch.  Snatch was a fantastic film and in that vein we wanted to see 44 Inch Chest.  This film is gritty, dark and wet.  It has everything you could want..loyalty, the inevitable betrayl and revenge.

Basically, this woman leaves her husband for a waiter and the husbands friends kidnap the guy for revenge.  Firstly, how can this woman not see that her gangster husband wouldn't allow for her to leave him for some scumbag waiter?  Seriously?!  Of COURSE they kidnapped him for revenge.  These are protective gangster friends.  His honor was seriously injured.  She's lucky its not her thats on the chopping block!

This film was violent, dark and twisted.  I greatly enjoyed it and I have to recommend it to everyone!  Pick it up today!

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
