Charlie is another one of the many 2005 catch-up films that I’m making a mad dash to watch and review. Charlie isn’t too bad an effort. While I’m not usually a fan of British gangster films, Charlie succeeded in my eyes because its main character is so unapologetically violent and brutal in his ways that it was fun to watch.

Charlie appropriately tells the story of 1960’s London crimelord Charlie Richardson (Goss). Splitting its time between Richardson on trial in his later years and his rise to power years before, Charlie is visually appealing, but the story tries to cram so much into a ninty-four minute running time that it fails a result. The underlying question is whether or not Charlie actually committed the crimes. This is something that easily could’ve had ninety-four minutes dedicated to it. Charlie just spends way too much on other points, and as a result, that the main plot falls flat.

If you’re not looking for a cohesive story, and rather a bunch of brutal gang attacks and some decent humor, Charlie does deliver on that front.
DVD: Barebones.
