  • Description

    Harold Shand (Bob Hoskins) is a businessman with great ambitions. Spotting the development potential of London’s derelict Docklands area years before the Thatcher government, he tries to broker a deal with his American counterpart (Eddie Constantine) that will make them both millions. But who is killing Harold’s other associates and blowing up his businesses - and why?

    Universally regarded as one of the greatest British gangster films ever made, The Long Good Friday rocketed Hoskins to international stardom. He’s given sterling support from Helen Mirren (as his upper-crust mistress), Paul Freeman (Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Derek Thompson (Casualty), and there’s even an early appearance from future James Bond Pierce Brosnan.

    But it’s Hoskins’ film through and through, his towering performance taking on a Shakespearean intensity as he’s forced to resort to the down-and-dirty methods that he thought he’d put behind him in order to find out who’s muscling in on his territory on what should be the best day of his life. He quickly finds out that this will be a very long Good Friday indeed…

the long good friday

a great copy of this classic film but so out daited now a good film

Classic British Gangster

The Long Good Friday is up there with the likes of Get Carter, The Krays, a good British gangster film, and for anyone who is old enough to have seen this when it was released will still enjoy it, but if you are under 30 I guess you may be put off with some of the dialogue in this modern society, its definitely not that bad but even I noticed some remarks that would not be used today, but overall a good thriller about a London gang boss (Bob Hoskins) who wants to move to the top of the perch and about to enter into a partnership with the Mafia, but because of one of his crew had went out on his own on what should have been a straightforward job which goes wrong, it turns the day into anything but Good.

The Long Good Friday

Excellent steelbook for excellent movie. Arrow knows how to do releases, another success from their part. For all steelbook collectors and movie fans I recommend to ge this. One of the best films from 1980.
