Five Films On Crime That Are Worth Your Weekend!

London Boulevard (2010)

Can an ex-con erase his past? London Boulevard asks this question as we plunge deep into the world of gangsters, glitz, and glamour.

The film tells the story of Mitchel, a no-nonsense tough guy trying to straighten his life after a recent tryst in prison. When the mafia bosses wish to pull him out of retirement but he has other plans, things take an ugly turn. Colin Farrell delivers a splendid performance in the lead role while Keira Knightley charms us as an actress who starts off as Mitchel’s client but ends up becoming his love interest.

Does Mitchel get the girl and the dream he wanted, or do you die by the gun if you live by it? Watch London Boulevard on Google Play Movies and iTunes to find out. 

 Arbitrage (2012)

Business, hedge funds, corporate corruption, sounds pretty boring, doesn’t it? But what if Harrison Ford plays a conniving money man, one step ahead of opponents with his devilish feats?

Arbitrage stars Ford at his scheming best as he orchestrates one financial misdemeanor after another and always gets away with a smile. But karma finally seems to catch up when a gruesome accident is too big to cover up and his family starts sniffing something fishy. The film then takes us through twists and turns galore, as we are left wondering about the thin line between greed and morals.

Out of the Furnace (2013)

“Christian Bale and his gun are looking for brutal revenge” is enough of a selling point to get anyone hooked.

This Scott Cooper directorial follows the life of two brothers who are torn apart by wretched fate after the younger one is killed. Bale essays the elder kin who goes after the people who ruined his family. With a star-studded ensemble that not only includes Bale but also the likes of Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Forest Whitaker, and Willem Dafoe, this is one power packed movie.

Felony (2013)

“All men make mistakes, but a good man yields and repairs the evil”, this quote best describes Felony in a nutshell. When an accident costs an innocent life, three police officers are entangled in a dirty web of deceit. One goofs up, the other tries to bury the truth, but the third wants justice to prevail. A dark and intense tale about the essence of integrity and the burden of guilt, a Felony is a must-watch for fans of police dramas.

Cymbeline (2014)

When a Shakespeare play is adapted into a gritty “Cops versus Criminals” story, it just cannot be missed! 

Cymbeline introduces us to a town filled with crooked cops, derelict dons, and an inevitable war that is about to break out between the two. A beastly biker gang is on the tenterhooks over who will be their next ruler and this game of thrones gives way to a series of events that involves betrayal, double-crossing and violent slaughters. Ethan Hawke headlines the cast which also features Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson along with Ed Harris and Milla Jovovich.
