The Drop

Bob Saginowski finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.

The Drop is directed by Michael R.Roskam and stars James Gandolfini, Tom hardy and Noomi Rapace. I was really waiting for this movie to come out as I love Tom Hardy's work and it's unfortunately James Gandolfini last role. They are both fantastic in this movie. When you begin to realize where the story is heading and where the characters are going, at that moment you understand how brilliant this film is; even more when the movie is composing with a lot of talking scenes building the characters. Indeed the movie is taking its time with characters but there are good chemistry between the couples, wether it's between Gandolfini and Hardy or Hardy and Noomi Rapace, they all work well together. However, the movie is really long to set up the main plots. Some scenes may be unnecessary. The tension is actually picking up in the middle of the second act and when it does Tom Hardy is really stealing the movie, he literally explodes, I am impressed. 

Overall The Drop is good looking movie with vibrant colors and nice cinematography, excellent performances and a very special script.
