Ex-villain Gal Dove (Ray Winstone) has served his time behind bars and is blissfully retired to a Spanish villa paradise with a wife he adores.
The idyll is shattered by the arrival of his gangster nemesis Don Logan (Ben Kingsley), intent on persuading Gal to return to London for one last big job.
Desperate not to sacrifice his enchanted existence, Dove is drawn into a shocking and explosive battle of wills with Logan, and takes part in a sensational underwater heist, risking everything to protect the woman he loves.
Jonathan Glazer’s statement-of-intent debut feature Sexy Beast was a breath of fresh air in the British crime film canon; a kinetic, no-holds-barred, darkly comedic thriller of nerve-shreddingly escalating stakes.
Winstone has never been better, but Kingsley is more than a match as his transfixing, indomitable rival Don Logan – a criminal mastermind who is as trigger happy with firing expletives as he is discharging a weapon.
