'GANGSTER NO.#1' is a well-delivered piece of British crime lore that avoids the heavy stylings of 'Sexy Beast' or 'Snatch' in favor of a more straight ahead coverage of the era it's mainly set, the 1960's. The wardrobe and characters evoke the 'Get Carter' era Micheal Caine with sharply dressed hoods wreaking havoc on the public with glee. Paul Bettany plays an ambitious but frighteningly cold thug who's jonesing for the dapper leader's spot and his woman. Intersected well between Roddy MacDowell's modern persona of the older thug who still yearns for his mentor's charisma. Worth seeing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
