      Audience Member I just saw the movie and I liked it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Ännu en brittisk gangsterfilm som vill vara mer badass än Guy Ritchies gangsterfilmer men som dom andra kopiorna så misslyckas lite. Men detta är en av dom bättre kopiorna, dels för att man slipper Danny Dyer som annars brukar husera i billiga gangsterfilmer och för att miljön känns mer Las Vegas än brittisk storstad. Annars är storyn typisk brittisk gangster, ett x antal mer eller mindre skumma personer vill ha tag på en portfölj med pengar och gör nästan vad som helst för att få tag på den. För alla er Indy fans kan jag berätta att den gamle gode Paul Freeman spelar ännu en gång en badguy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member You won't find more backstabbing in any other movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Nicely filmed with just enough explanation of each character and a plot to keep you guessing right until the end. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a half way between one Guy Ritchie's movie and one from Tarantino, but it misses their geniality. Made in England with an unknown but pretty good cast, it's nice but not original. Anyway I liked the ending. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Yet another terrible British Gangster thriller, which features slutty, manipulative wags popping their booty's for old geezers who serve up their cocks as "full english breakfasts" whilst a conveyer belt of forgettable characters come and go and no-one gives a Murray Mint.

      Sophie Monks Kaufman Eye for Film Rated: 3/5 Jan 22, 2013 Full Review Tom Seymour Empire Magazine A miserable mess of gangland cliches and narrative tangle that deserves to be dropped off the end of Southend pier, preferably attached to an anvil. Rated: 1/5 Mar 9, 2012 Full Review Henry Barnes Guardian The leaden plot - involving a monochrome gang of hard nuts and their molls doing each other in for a briefcase of cash - leaves us with nothing under the wrapper. Rated: 1/5 Mar 8, 2012 Full Review Joseph Walsh CineVue Ultimately, Hard Boiled Sweets fails to entertain, and stands only as a messy mash-up of cockney gangster stereotypes. Rated: 2/5 Aug 24, 2018 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) The film is smart, though not as smart as it thinks. Mar 11, 2012 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon The packaging is attractive, but the contents are less than satisfying, thanks to some dodgy performances, a surfeit of unlikeable characters and a script that's both lazy and over familiar. Rated: 1/5 Mar 10, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
