Outstanding, hilarious movie. Colin Farrell nearly steals the show. This is one of those fabulous, clever UK movies like Shallow Grave, Rock n Rolla and Layer Cake. Yes, it's profane, and yes it's violent, but it's also really fun. Saw it in the theater first and I've got to say, a lot of the people who bought seats had no idea what they were in for.
It's not nearly as frenetic as Sherlock, nor is it as polished and slick as King Arthur, but it's urbane and amusing and the actors are terrific. Who would've ever thought Hugh Grant could lech quite so well, or Collin Farrell pull off old, track suit wearing, unassuming and thugly? Some won't get it, some won't like it, but for the rest of us, it's a lovely romp.
