By the Gun

SHARE

(2014) 

Prince Caspian’s Ben Barnes unhappily cast as Nick Tortano, a Boston-Italian petty criminal dreaming of the GoodFellas life by getting into capo Harvey Keitel’s good books. The usually reliable Toby Jones fares just as badly as Barnes in a papier-maché Mafia flick unfit to lick Martin Scorsese’s winklepickers. Never mind The Chronicles of Narnia, there were more thrills in Barnes’ Britcom Killing Bono. And By the Gun will seem especially feeble for anyone coming to it so soon after Rob the Mob.
