Weegie director Paul McGuigan's Gangster No 1. was excellent and surprisingly disturbing. Malcolm McDowell plays an aging, quite mad, crime boss looking back to his climb to the top/descent into madness in 1960's London. Flashing back in time from a black tie boxing match, Paul Bettany puts in an impressive performance as the young hood brought into the gang, who eventually kills friends & foes to achieve his goal in rather chilling, brutal fashion. Stylishly shot, well scripted and with great performances from Thewlis, Bettany and McDowell this is a cut above your usual British gangsterism.
Iron Man 2 is a decent enough sequel, there's plenty of natty fx action sequences and Downey Jr is still the most appealing superhero on screen at the moment but the whole thing was a bit too busy for me; if they peeled away the SHIELD/Scarlett storyline they could've chucked a bit more action in and still had more time to flesh out the Rourke/Rockwell arc too.
