Jude Law is almost unrecognizable with an pasty extra 20 pounds, receding hairline and a badly broken nose . He looks like a poor man’s Jude Law. And then there’s that unforgettable opening scene. An obviously naked Law waxing enthusiastically about his manhood, ramping up to a maniacally obscene rant climaxing in a , well, climax with another guy then scampering off. That’s how we learn Jude Law’s Dom Hemingway is in prison. He’s given his freedom in the next scene.
It turns out rather than cop a plea for a reduced term, Hemingway refused to rat out his ex-crime boss, ending up with a 12 year prison term, which cost him his wife and daughter. The very crude Hemingway is on a mission to collect his prison-earned payoff from his ex-crime boss, while at the same time, trying to reconcile with his now-grown daughter.
Jude Law fans will have fun and I have to say his transformation is impressive. But all in all, you can make this a rainy day Netflix activity.
