On the Bluray disc, William Monahan stated the scene between Gant (Ray Winstone) and DI Bailey (Eddie Marsan) was shot at a specific point next to the River Thames because it was important to him. However, he did not reveal to anyone why. It appears to be the exact same spot that "Alex DeLarge" (Malcolm McDowell) is beaten by all the old winos and bums after his treatment in "A Clockwork Orange". See more »

But if you like slick crime drama then this is the movie for you. Good actors, solid screenplay , and Keira Knightley And Colin Farrel had a very good chemistry on stage. And i really like David Thewlis more for every movie i have seen him in.
The movie do has some negatives but i truly don't think they will impact so much they could maybe sharpened the story a tiny bit more. And maybe chosen someone other than Ray Winstone for his part. Also the settings was maybe to shallow.
Anyway solid movie for a Sunday afternoon .
