Directed by Michael R. Roskam, Written by Dennis Lehane, Starring Tom Hardy, James Gandofini, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Shoenaerts and John Ortiz
Synopsis - Bob Saginowski finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.
Thoughts - The Drop is definitely not doing anything new, but it was refreshing seeing this type of neighborhood crime film, with a fantastic cast and well drawn characters, getting a real theatrical release. I want more!
I really need to talk through this Tom Hardy performance though. Brandoesque in the best and worst ways.
