Some kind of Guy Ritchie vigilante gangster movie. It's bad, just bad. Acting is mediocre but the script is .... annoying. Haven't read the book; not my cup of tea, so maybe the book/story is just a mess, but either way the result (the movie) is a flop.

Last Looks is a mysterious stew that experiments with flavorful ingredients throughout its two-hour duration. The film ultimately collapses under its own potential resulting in a bland and flavorless concoction. Every side character is just interesting enough to pique your interest and the film is written in a way where it seems like everyone is a suspect, but every potentially exciting aspect dissolves before it has a chance to light up the sky; like a really expensive firecracker that turns out to be a dud. The film may be worth a look for Mel Gibson’s flashy, boisterous, and drunkenly absurd performance. The mystery in Last Looks is essentially comparable to trying to discover the expiration date on a can of mystery meat that has lost its label; it may be life-threatening but is otherwise a bore to experience by others.
