WHO LIT THE FUSE THAT TORE HAROLD’S WORLD APART?
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.
This special limited edition also includes Mona Lisa, Hoskins’ return to the gangster genre – although the kingpin here is played by a mesmerisingly slimy Michael Caine, with Hoskins merely George the chauffeur, transporting high-class prostitute (Cathy Tyson) from client to client. But when she enlists his help in tracking down an old friend, George finds himself exploring a hellish underworld that he never imagined existed.

The two films in this collection are marvellous and my favourite performances from Bob Hoskins, so I was thrilled to find out Arrow Video (my favourite distribution company) had created a collection and remastered them for bluray. The previous release of TLGF from Anchor Bay looked quite shoddy, and this is day and night difference in quality. The set itself I would rate 5/5 but I am disappointed in the postage packaging from Zavvi, it was sent in cheap packaging with a thin layer of bubble wrap and once I took it out, I discovered big creases on the corners of the box, which is a big shame. I would highly recommend the set as it's perfect.
Two great films with the one and only Bob Hoskins.
top quality just like the press have said.
