3.5/4 

A crime drama of a different breed. Very subdued and methodical, but also narratively simple. The pace is slow and there is a strong attention to character. Having less plot and more story gives us time to examine the people and their situations. At first, a few different elements are introduced that seem like individual sub-plots coinciding in the main character's life. Over time the strands form a whole and the individual tensions become one. We come to know the people in the film on a personal level, so when a crucial reveal happens it means much more emotionally. It's one build up to an ultra-satifying finale. Superb writing, directing, and acting.

Gute Performance: Tom Hardy

The Drop zeigt Tom Hardy genauso, wie ich ihn am liebsten sehe - und zwar in jeder Szene! The Drop ist ein solider Mafia Thriller geworden nach der Kurzgeschichte von Dennis Lehane. Regie führte der Belgier Michael R. Roskam mit seinem Hollywood Debüt. The Drop funktioniert dann am besten, wenn Hardy die einzelnen Schichten seiner Figur langsam abträgt und im Finale zu bester Form aufläuft: Sein "Dark Horse" Bob Saginowski hat höchstwahrscheinlich das miese Viertel in Brooklyn noch nie verlassen. Er arbeitet in der Bar von "Cousin" Marv (James Gandolfini in seiner letzten Kinorolle), die auch seinen Namen Trägt: Cousin Marv. Allerdings gehört die Bar Marv nicht mehr, sondern der tschetschenischen Mafia und das hat Marv nie überwunden. Wie Bob muss er nun für die Tschts...

My final review of 2014

I still can't believe that James Gandolfini isn't with us anymore and this is sadly his last movie role we are ever going to see him ever again, but he has left us with a pretty damn good film.

The story is about a dive bar acts as a front for the local mob, funneling money nightly. But even as one man begins to questions his role, his uncle is robbed, setting off a string of events - including caring for an injured pit bull pup - that will ultimately dictate his future.

I was really looking forward to This movie, not because of the passing of James Gandolfini, because the film itself looks pretty good. But the movie wasn't coming out til December and I had to wait for long while.... I always hate that. So now I finally watched it and I can clearly say that this is pretty damn good ...

Actually Quite Good

The crime genre is one that has had the pleasure of describing some of the greatest movies of all time, but it has described some really lousy ones as well. It’s one of the longer standing film genres in pop culture, so it’s developed a very specific set of clichés over the decades, and many filmmakers fail to deviate from them.

The Drop deviates a little bit, but it doesn’t really stand out all that much. There’s a lot of stuff here that we’ve seen before. And though the similarities to other movies in the genre don’t kill The Drop, they certainly keeps it from going the necessary step from good to great.

What we have here is a perfectly decent crime thriller, with grade-A acting, twists that don’t feel contrived and a narrative that is consistently entertaining. For the major...
