Indeed. Saw it this weekend and loved it. Hardy and Gandolfini were both excellent, as was the rest of the cast all around. Great story, excellent sense of atmosphere...a great film in every way. Highly recommended.

I also saw "The Equalizer" the same night. It was interesting. If the plot had kept its feet closer to the ground, I think I might have liked it more, but the constant escalation and the place it finally ended up were just a bit fantastical for me. Still, not a bad film. I love Washington in almost everything he does, but I especially like seeing him in roles like this. He does it often, but I never seem to tire of it. Also, Fincher's signature touches made it a bit more interesting as well. Recommended if you like seeing very bad people get what's coming to them in very bloody, violent ways.

The Equalizer pissed me off because while the action scenes were brilliant, the story took up way too much time and wasn't that interesting. It's certainly not a bad film because of the brutal action sequences (the hardware store standoff at the end was fucking INTENSE) and Denzel Washington is great per usual, but it was still disappointing due to the lackluster story and incredibly slow pacing.
