Easy Money (15)

Action, Crime, Drama

When JW becomes a drug runner in order to maintain his double life, his fate becomes tied to two other men: Jorge, a fugitive on the run from both the Serbian mafia and the police, and mafia enforcer Mrado, who is on the hunt for Jorge.

The critical consensus

Sobering Scandinavian tale.

****(*)Brian Viner, Daily Mail, 18/07/2013

There's plenty here to show why director Daniel Espinosa caught Hollywood's eye, even if this pre-Safe House crime drama holds few surprises.

This is a hard-working thriller that spotlights the changing nature of criminality in modern-day Europe.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/07/2013

With precious little honour among these thieves, the struggle to survive and emerge as top dog is the basis of a well-spun yarn that has spawned a sequel and talk of a Hollywood remake.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 19/07/2013

This movie was made in 2010, but more than deserves its release now: fast-moving, plausible and smart.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/07/2013

Easy Money moves like a razor-edged Frisbee that could cut off a player's hand or sever his jugular if he doesn't see what's coming.

Philip French, The Observer, 21/07/2013

The film covers a lot of ground, at pace. A sequel is promised – and justified.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 18/07/2013

Espinosa directs with nervous energy, combining blistering action with believable, sympathetic characters; this is assured, emotionally engaging stuff.
