Great cast but nothing new in the story which is very badly told. So very obvious and slow with stupid dialogue. Reminds me of the 1970's TV movie. Totally forgettable and the extreme violence cutting up dead bodies - real villians would never expose themselves to transfer of DNA etc or were they trying to say that the whole of the MET is in the pocket of the criminals. nothing made sense story wise. waste of time watching this
So with a title like "The Corrupted" one does not expect to see nearly zero people with any form of ethical or scrupulous behavior. But in the end, it certainly appears that all levels of the universe presented in this movie are dark, nasty, and above all CORRUPT! While it made a great movie to watch, it was certainly a bit distressing. For our universe to function, I want to believe that not everybody is cut from the cloth presented here. But, some days our news certainly give me cause to believe The Corrupted could be a slice of life more than fantasy. That makes me a bit nervous.
This was one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. It was just corruption upon corruption and a very surprised ending with the cop. I wish that they would have shown him finding his brothers grave and also showed him picking up the briefcase full of money. I like closed ends and not open loops. I give it an 11/10. 5 stars.

I always like to see Actors take on different roles and Sam Claflin certainly got into the role and did it very well. Old favourite Timothy Spall never fails to entertain and he acted the part of the psychotic gangster incredibly well. But I bought the film when I saw Hugh Bonneville was in the cast and as I had just seen Downton Abbey in the cinema it was a must buy. The film is violent and sometimes very graphic with it. and although I do not usually enjoy excessive scenes of that nature it showed a real tour de force. It should however have got a better time in the cinema. The rest of the support cast were very good and if you liked The Sweeney, Line Of Duty and that kind of genre it is a good buy.
