After a successful career in London's underworld
of crime, Gal Dove (Played by Ray Winston) was forced out of
retirement by Don Logan (Played by Ben Kingsley) an old underworld
associate who is pure evil with a vicious temper, and every word
that comes out of his mouth is poison.
You just don't say no to this scumbag or
he'll kill you. I'll guarantee you'd come out of retirement too.
You'd be too scared of him not to.
My only draw back about this film was I
had trouble understanding the dialect, but you truly must see
this flick to believe it.
Good evening, and welcome to the gritty
and gloomy world of the British gangster flick.
If the plot seems a little paper-thin at
times, don't worry, all will become clear, thanks to quick cuts
and gratious flashbacks.
With disjointed action and an incomprehensible
script, this movie is almost as baffling as its title.
Well -acted with some extremely odd visuals,
too weird for words alone.
The movie title, Sexy Beast is misleading.
No one in the film is sexy (in my view).
I think crazy beast best describes at least
one character. The story is essentially a caper flick that focuses
on a retired British mobster who is determined to honor a promise
he made to his wife, to stay out of crime.
There's no way I could ever be entertained
by this film, unless English subtitles were employed under the
main character scenes. The accents were sometimes so thick and
irritating to understand that it left critical elements of the
dialogue simply lacking.
