Shand controls the London docks and is planning a big real estate deal, financed by money from the American mob and given the okay by the London organization. His world is sweet -- he lives in a fancy penthouse, he owns a yacht, and has a sensitive and intelligent mistress. But suddenly a bomb explodes inside his Rolls Royce, another bomb destroys a pub he owns, and a third is found inside his casino. Shand can't understand who would suddenly want him dead, particularly over the Easter weekend, when representatives from the American mafia are coming into town to discuss investing in Shands's real estate project.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Critics loved this finely detailed gangster film, in which a then little-known British actor and director made their mark in international cinema. Director John MacKenzie had labored without much acclaim in film and television before his deft handling of this wry screenplay by Barrie Keefe. Bob Hoskins was a veteran, versatile actor in stage and screen roles who become better known in the United States for his 1988 lead role opposite a cartoon character in the partially animated spoof Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. In The Long Good Friday, he played a dockyard crime boss whose empire crumbles in a series of mysterious bombings over Easter weekend. Richly plotted and thick with suspense, the film made Hoskins an international star and was one of the finest of many contemporary updates of the classic crime film genre.

    Gripping gangster drama

    I saw this film several years ago and again recently on pay cable. Bob Hoskins gives a stunning, emotional portayal of a gangster trying to go legit. He's stubborn, brutish and brilliant by turns. Helen Mirren is great as well. A must see if you're a fan of the genre or just a fan of great acting.

    Long Good Friday is the perfect gangster film

    Saw this flick after x years on a transatlantic flight and had to see it again on the return. Bob Hoskin's facial expressions at the conclusion are without equal.
