“In this thriller a lonely bartender named Bob and his boss “cousin Marv” runs a bar that does money laundering for the city”s criminal gangs. But when they get caught in a tangle of a failed robberies and debts they can not pay, they realize that they have to make the dangerous choice between loyalty and survival.”
Let me begin by saying that James Gandolfini did an excellent job in The Drop, one of his last movies before his tragical death. He had a talent of making his characters so believable and he did it here too, may he rest in peace.
The Drop is slow, but good slow, lots of quiet scenes but still capturing. The director does a great job of making every scene count. You have to have patient because the ending is what does this movie so good and where it all gets connected! Don”t expect a gangster movie because it”s not, it”s rather focused on people affected by gangsters.
Tom Hardy was as usual fantastic, he shows once again why he is online casino nederland one of the biggest star in hollywood right now, his characters reminded me a lot of the one he plays in the movie “LAWLESS“… if you liked that movie I think you will enjoy this one too.
2 great actors makes definitely 1 good movie!
And also, our swedish actress Noomi Rapace is in it, and that alone is one good reason to watch The Drop hehe…
