    I love this movie, very emotional. :) Fantastic music.

    Another nomination The Krays


    There is also another movie I have been trying to remember. It is a British movie and has 3 main characters. I think it was made between 1990-1996. It is quiet violent and raw.

    1. The leader of the 3, slightly older of the 2 (40 years ish) and has a new born baby and wife who he wants to return to and quit the ganster/debt collecting lifestyle. But his top ganster boss wont let him out as he makes him to much money.
    2. A crazy bloke (mid twenties) who is always off his face on coke. He is a ladies man and a flash eastend wideboy. He is also very much out of control and likes hurting people.
    3. I cant remember much of this guy other than he was the softest of the two.

    They all looked like estate agents. ;)

    This is what little I can remember:

    There is a scene in a cafe where the coke head crazy guy (2) is getting p**sed off with the owners music so he shooots him dead by accident. I think he was going for the radio. The cafe owners brother was there and he gave him a few quid as a way of saying sorry.

    I can also remember the 3 guys debt collecting from a night club. I think he shot the owner in the foot or leg.

    They did allot of driving.

    Can anyone help with the title of this movie as I would love to see it again. :confused:

    Cheers :smashin:

    I always see this movie knocking around for £3-4 but have never seen it. Maybe I might bag it next time I come across it. :smashin:

    It's well worth a punt.

    Apparently Chopper told Eric Bana that he had got the part and that he wasn't going to refuse the role :rolleyes: .

    I think that that is classed as a ringing endorsement.

    Hardmen is a pretty good film, very dark humour but enjoyable.

    The first time I saw this movie was by accident on sky movies. The movie put a big grin on my face, and drew me right in.

    Yes your right it has got very dark humour to it and it is quiet violent :clap: :clap: :clap:

    A good British title. :smashin:

    Another couple to try are:

    SHOOTERS directed by Colin Teague http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0278035/

    and strangely enough

    SHOOTERS directed by Dan Reed http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0328420/

    This was filmed using real Liverpool Gangsters with pretty much no acting experience and a semi improvised script. I searched or a long time to find this film, but it was worth it.

    Can't believe no ones mentioned Resevoir Dogs.

    Also Sexy Beast is great. Another much underated Ray Winstone British gangster flick is Face. Excellent movie :thumbsup:
