Certification18 Our Rating

Powerful drama exploring the underlying erosion of stability in American society by following three generations of a Hispanic American family from the 1940's to the mid 70's. This story illustrates the roots of gang culture in LA, and digs beneath the surface. Excellently directed. find out more...

Outrageously camp gangster yarn about an assassin who can only achieve sexual excitement by sniffing boiled rice! Ranked No 3 in the Top 10 of underworld hitmen, he polishes off No 2 during a string of spectacular killings, but soon has No 1 hot on his tail. Occasionally mystifying, but always witty, inventive and dazzling. find out more...

Michael Peterson was born in 1952 into a well off Luton family, "As a boy he was a lovely lad. He was obviously bright and always good with children. He was gentle and mild-mannered, never a bully – he would defend the weak" (comments from his aunt). Somehow something went seriously wrong and he has spent 34 years incarcerated at Her Majesty's pleasure, 30 of them in solitary confinement. He has renamed himself Charles Bronson and is proud of the one thing he has in his life: his reputation as t find out more...

Three young Hong Kong hustlers move to Saigon to try and profit, smuggling penicillin and gold, from the war, but their friendship is tested to the limits through greed, betrayal and lust, amid the horrors of a war-torn Vietnam. Comparable to the 'Deer Hunter', this violent epic is the most ambitiously personal and political of John Woo's films, but still comes packed with guns, explosives and balletic action. find out more...

Barry Ryan is the main man; there isn't a dodgy deal or crooked enterprise that doesn't ultimately answer to him. This being Australia there's been nobody to really stand in his way, but when the Mafia arrive looking for an easy sweep Barry finds his amoral cunning pushed to its very limits. Dirty Deeds is an entertaining gangster comedy, with a few scenes of hard arsed brutality thrown in just so you know who you're dealing with. find out more...

It's 1968 and Gangster is in the employ of one of London's big boys, Freddie May. Gangster is completely without morality or remorse and as a consequence very good at his job, the only flaw in his life is that he wants to be Number One. Gangster hatches a plan which sees him achieve his goal and put Freddy away for a very long time, but eventually he will have to face his old boss again. 'Gangster No 1' is a hard, brutal, minimalist movie more reminiscent of the Get Carters and Long Good Fridays find out more...

Of all the 1980s rash of Vietnam movies, this was the simplest, bloodiest and most action-packed. Based on the true story of the assault on a well-fortified NVA position, Hill 937, this was a bloody, pointless and suicidal event which created near mutiny in the American ranks as their bodies littered the hill. Like a harrowing remake of 'The Sands of Iwo Jima'. find out more...

A crackingly realised biog of a man who relentlessly dodged death with a cocky ambivalence that frankly defies credulity. 'Mesrine' is stylishly shot, smoothly directed and perfectly, charmingly, sociopathically performed by Cassell. A tight, pacey thriller considerably enhanced by the fact that it's based in, well…fact. This first film takes us from his brutal initiation as a soldier during the horrors of Algeria's fight for liberation to the end of the 1960s via France and French Canada. find out more...

The definitive gangster-epic; violent? Yes, but never mindless. The Jewish Mafia's coming of age on the Lower East Side in 1923, their rise to wealth during Prohibition, and their fall in 1933, provide the background to a story of friendship and betrayal, love and death. Leone's masterful cinematography evokes both the harshness of the vice-ridden decades before and after Prohibition, but also the philosophy behind it. Splendid performances by De Niro and Woods and a stupendous score by Ennio Mo find out more...
