The film is Ben Affleck's "Law night" is quite a stylish gangster movie. He has managed to capture the atmosphere of 30-ies. Cars, suits, gangster showdown, sometimes there was heard not bad music, everything is well-immersed in the great depression: a time when the mafia thrives for sale of alcohol, drugs and etc. So I wish to mention cinematography. Robert Richardson is a great operator, its fascinating camera angles helped yet to feel what is happening. All the actors played just great, he Affleck, I think, did a great job with the main role in the emotional moments are literally eyes can be read the full gamut of his games. In technical terms, the film is really good.

What can you say about the story?

Hero Ben Affleck — the son of a policeman, in the past, he veteran 1 world in the moment — a petty thug, from which has its own principles, and their world. In some events it has to change his principles. The beginning was really cheerful and aroused interest, and it seemed there must begin the most interesting, but, alas, no. The middle of the film sags very boring dialogues, which could be shorter, less of thumb, if removed to a couple of dialogues. It is the film would not damaged. So also hated the fact that in the moments where the idea is to be energized, it is missing. Therefore, at the time, it would seem that a busy moment, you simply react to all not feeling no excitement for the characters. Exactly half of the movie you can say nothing at all happened, sometimes I almost fell asleep. In General, a very weak middle. Under the end of the film better. I will say more, the ending I really liked it was quite intense, dynamic, and led to interesting conclusions over which do you think. To really, the film raises many philosophical issues: racism, war, religion, and not only. There is something to think about.

To summarize, I would say that film basically liked. Great atmosphere, great camera work, great actors. All shoals lie in the plot, moreover, that many of the actions were predictable, so still boring the middle of the film, only the ending with his entire philosophy and drama saves the day.

Summary: With a stretch I put the film

Dualism — the basic principle of painting, in which appear and causing a pleasant smile to the classic features, and slightly surprising, unusual solutions and the details of the plot. In a number of similar stories of shady, criminal business, America first half of the twentieth century, the work of Ben Affleck is a controversial place. With one side is a classic entry — soldiers returning from war classic tie and history General — the opposition are criminal families and work on one of them. With the other hand, it into a new narrative for the genre aspects which because of its novelty seem strained, but in fact, with a little in advance, those not are. And from the context of this combination of opposites is, in fact, is a movie.

Integral plus — available in the picture of Brendan Gleason. Who, if not he had to play straight and rough, but in its honest and principled Irish COP in a climate of widespread crime and violence. Scenes from tape breathes the spirit of the first "Mafia", and some plot details are finely executed and good habit. The South American situation as a tribute to the second part of the Godfather, and categorical, lightning strike at the enemies as the continuation of the traditions of the entire series. Love the lines and evolution of the main character is also reminiscent of the legendary paintings Coppola, with a note, however, that here they are still worse, or as not fresh.

So, relationships with the opposite sex have hero Affleck look pretty corny, and the sex scenes in General seem to be buggy and even inappropriate. A huge amount of VoiceOver from the face of the hero (well at least not the narrator), first enters in confusion, and then begins to irritate. In some places the voice is just connects the scene, and simply replace them, conveying the story without authentic accompanying picture. Dialogue sometimes subside and become still, frankly staged. A couple of times for a film comes to mind that is about to be ending, but in the plot gains new blood, and it will be developed further, making a sense of the slowness of the tape. Long comes the climax and denouement, but perhaps it can be attributed to the features of the genre. The spectator also tried to show moral feelings and the internal conflict of hero, but this side was affected only by a tangent.

In General, it is the usual story, sometimes playing with new colors. Sometimes a classic, but sometimes trivial (the difference is significant!). On light there was a tape, find new ways to remind us on elegant, attractive dangerous and tough the topic of the mafia old school.

The film "the Law of the night" tells about the life of Joe, the son of the police chief city, which is difficult for the America of prohibition and the great depression of the supplies rum home, but in fact, due to the nature retracts in mafia games. Once in criminal Joe as and accepted these paintings you find a reason to go on a career ladder that can't any unnecessary trouble, but with little remorse. According to the forced measure of cruelty is changing and Joe — to the end of the tape is not clear how much will change the character and lifestyle of the protagonist.

When making a movie didn't happen frequent event — one person wrote the script, directed the film and played the main role. This man Ben leaders — actor, Director, screenwriter and producer familiar to viewers of the film "Good will hunting", "Ischeznuvshaya" and directing "Operation Argo". To unfortunately at Ben Affleck not it is strong acting, but but it turns out to evolve as author and Director it can be seen that person is interesting — in recent years, Ben has been able to grow in this direction. In movie Ben Affleck turned and to play better than before, the main character goes through the full path of guy streets of a person neglecting the main human values, norms of morality and law.

It should be said that in the tape a lot of strong actors and even a cameo role here remembered. El Fanning plays Loretta — daughter of a COP who dreams of acting in Hollywood, the young heroine also goes on a journey of transformation, but in the opposite direction than the main character, despite the young age actress cope with the problem, want stopping to watch and understand every word of this character. Chic cameo role played Matthew Meher — RD is a member of the ku Klux Klan thoroughly imbued with ideology on over view causes constant disgust every replica, and the person asked brick. Chris Cooper — plays the chief of Figgis, a man forced to live between two fires and in the end the chief will have to decide — than look over the feed.

In the movie vintage style America 1920хх years — vintage American cars, elegant costumes, nice music and colorful GA, except that is not shown that the period lived in wide leg in fact some bootleggers and most of the people were in abject poverty.

The film is Ben Affleck not even trying to compete with a classic, and shows the author's vision on the themes of prohibition, the mafia and contains allusions to present. I doubt that the picture will be included in the best movies about the mafia, but it is very self-sufficient and able to decorate your evening.
