Law fights the law.. Law wins; NOW SHOWING.

Dom Hemingway Cert 15 JUDE Law goes on the rampage as a safe-cracker in this black comedy - a hugely entertaining crime thriller.

The charismatic star is thoroughly engaging as nasty villain Dom Hemingway, who after 12 years in jail wants his pay-off from a softly-spoken Russian gangster Mr Fontaine (Demian Bichir) in France.

Dom is joined by Dickie, Richard E. Grant looking like a pyschadelic gravedigger, who has to warn him away from Fontaine's stunning girl Paolina (Madalina Diana Ghenea).

There's sex, booze, drugs and violence galore as the tension builds and a double-cross leaves desperate Dom chasing his money back to London. The second half is less manic but the film's finale is very satisfying.

And bold visuals, combined with torrents of comic abuse recited at speed by competing accents like punk poets, help make Dom Hemingway a riot.
