|Academy Award nominee Bob Hoskins delivers a ferocious performance as mobster Harold Shand, the all-powerful boss of the London underworld. But on the day he is about to close the ultimate deal with an American crime family, Shand's empire suddenly - and literally - begins to explode around him. Who would dare attack Britain's most ruthless gangster? How far will he go to find the truth? And what is the deadly secret behind the havoc of The Long Good Friday?|
Oscar nominee Helen Mirren (Gosford Park, Caligula), tough guy Eddie Constantine (Alphaville), and Pierce Brosnan (in one of his first film roles) co-star in this now-classic crime drama that critics compare to The Godfather and Scarface as one of the greatest gangster films of all time.
