      jwcdood GANGSTER/THE WEE MAN really isn't as bad as the Stinkin' Veggies rating. However, I did have two difficulties watching it: 1) It's nothing new or unique [but that doesn't make it worthy of such a low rating]; and, 2) being an American and being familiar with only American English, I unfortunately had real difficulty following the story because the heavy accents were almost an impossibility and the captions synchronization with the dialogue was off by at least two sentences. C'est la vie...too bad... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Nigel B I really don't know why this is so slated ? Paul (the film revolves around him) is brilliant the plot is real true story and it flows and embed well . Sort of Kay twins type story but it shows the violence double crosses loyalty and death very well in the true Grimaldi world Hardest part is the proper Scot's accents reckon I could fit in now with my new understanding of heavy accent lol It's worth a watch it's 4.5 stars on Amazon and that might be a tad high but it is not in anyway a movie like some of the comments made It's Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/15/23 Full Review Audience Member really enjoyed this story. Paul ferries is one of my favorite stories. thoroughly enjoyed this 8/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review rory s Loved it. Great movie. Well acted. Informative. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Another self-loving ode to the British gangster past-time which seems to try and preach to us that there is honour in what these guys do when in reality it's just another evening for me wasted sitting through this drivel. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The fact it's based on a true story makes it more watchable. Worth a look if your not infuriated by a Scottish accent ð??? nice to watch something slightly more realistic and not so slick and sexy.

      Charles Gant Variety The violent past of onetime Glasgow gangster Paul Ferris yields a banal biopic in "The Wee Man," returning multihyphenate Ray Burdis ("Love, Honor and Obey") to the director's chair after an absence of 13 years. Feb 7, 2013 Full Review London Evening Standard A crudely directed, typically unreliable gangster biopic, based on a memoir by Glaswegian hard man Paul Ferris. Rated: 2/5 Jan 18, 2013 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian As a whole, it's forgettable. Rated: 1/5 Jan 17, 2013 Full Review Stephen Carty metro.co.uk But here, the various power-plays and shifting alliances feel like musical chairs, while [Ray] Burdis's attempts to make [Paul] Ferris sympathetic are undercooked. Rated: 2/5 Sep 1, 2017 Full Review Alistair Harkness Scotsman Blows any intrigue by piling on one gangster movie clich after another. Rated: 1/5 Jan 21, 2013 Full Review Scotsman Manages to disappoint in every respect. Rated: 1/5 Jan 21, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
