All Things to All Men (15)

All Things to All Men (15)

Crime, Thriller

A thief is caught up in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse between a maverick cop and London crime boss.

The critical consensus

A clumsy third act cut-and-paste from LA Confidential (dialogue almost intact) shows a man who not only thieves from his betters, but is unable to adequately cover his tracks.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Niki Boyle, The List, 28/03/2013

Stylishly shot, but drained of power by flavourless writing.

**(*)(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 31/03/2013

Wants to be Heat, ends up closer to a high-gloss episode of The Bill.

**(*)(*)(*)Andrew Osmond, Empire Online, 01/04/2013

All Things to All Men is the latest attempt to make a British Michael Mann-style crime epic based on a fundamental misunderstanding of what Michael Mann actually does as a filmmaker.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 04/04/2013

Oh lord, that was a genuinely complex and gripping London-set noir.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 05/04/2013

George Isaac's debut feature does one or two things quite well – actually two, both of them chases – but offers little else in the way of excitement.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 04/04/2013

Don’t be fooled by the top cast as the dialogue is awful and performances not much better. Woeful.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 05/04/2013

Only Sewell escapes the affair unscathed, his wired performance in the final act rewarding those who stick around that long.

**(*)(*)(*)Chris Buckle, The Skinny, 05/04/2013

It's a stylish and involving experience, with an intriguing touch of Mike Hodges. Isaac is a film-maker with a future.
