Jude Law plays DOM HEMINGWAY, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he's owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demian Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Almost every line is delivered with such overwrought bombast, just inches at times from the camera, you may feel a need to dodge the spittle.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 04.02.2014
An amusing tale of vengeance, debauchery and redemption told stylishly by writer-director Richard Shepard.Jessica Herndon, Associated Press, 04.03.2014
Law, saying farewell to his youthful good looks (Dom has scars and a little too much weight), makes this hyper-articulate ruffian the most intricately soulful character in current movies.David Denby, New Yorker, 04.07.2014
Dom's adventures make for a pretty thin garment in which to cloth such an outsize antihero.Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 04.10.2014
