not very good

"All Things to All Men" is a 2013 British crime film.

Gabriel Byrne plays London crime boss Joseph Corso. His son, Mark (Pierre Mascolo), is a drug runner, and Corso also has an associate.

On the case are Parker (Rufus Sewell), Dixon (Leo Gregory), and Sands (George Cutter) from New Scotland Yard/Metro Police.

By using Mark and getting him on drug charges, the cops are able to get Corso into trapping Riley (Toby Stephens) who moves stolen diamonds.

Corso insists on seeing his son and also wants him released; Parker wants Riley in prison.

Joseph goes to Riley with one more job, a robbery where they have to move quickly. Parker delivers Corso's son to him. Joseph tells his son that he is planning to retire, but Mark won't be succeeding him due to his record.

It all goes awry, along with this bare-bones film that moves fast and says not much. We have a big car chase, though.

It's hard to tell the good guys from the bad, and I guess that's the point, as they cops acted like criminals.

The acting was good, especially from Byrne, Sewell, and Stephens, but I was not involved in the plot or with any of the actors. Normally I can follow a complicated plot - in fact, I like them - but when they're not well written, they are hard to follow, as this one was. The main reason for that is lack of interest.

Skip it.

I want my 84 minutes of my life back.

The best thing I can say about this experience is that it has inspired me to thoroughly clean my streaming queue.

This film has an 84 minute playing time, but it feels more like like I lost at least two solid hours of my life here for no reason at all. By all appearances, even the actors lose interest as this derivative corrupt cop story progresses to it's predictable finish.

The movie really doesn't start out that badly, kind of like a decent BBC TV production, but that's the highpoint, and it's only steadily downhill from there all the way to the end. If you are waiting, as I was, for this film to redeem itself in some way, well, that moment never comes.

Simply put, this film is really quite bad. Gabriel Byrne and Julian Sands must be way past their "sell by" dates and desperately in need of paychecks. At least, that's the most charitable excuse I can think of for getting involved in this dreck.

Stellar cast

Why did such a group of brilliant British actors agree to do this film in the first place? I can't help feeling that it must have been a favour for the director. They all turn in excellent performances in a film missing so much detail and a clunky script. Perhaps the director is aiming for film noir but the strong silent types were all a little overdone. The best part of the film was London. Wonderful to see so many landmarks. There is a good film lurking around the skeleton of this film but it is very difficult to understand quite what is happening. I had to watch it in 3 parts as I was so bored but didn't mind watching Rufus Sewell and Toby Stephens. In the end the stand out actor was Leo Gregory.
