The film follows a low ranking would be mobster named George (Hoskins) who has finished serving time in the big house and has been released back into the general population after a seven year stint. He doesn't have much to come back to. While he was locked up his wife became his ex-wife and decided, fairly understandably, that he shouldn't have any contact with his daughter what with his criminal affiliations and all. With nothing else to really work for or towards, he decides to revisit his old boss, Mortwell (Michael Caine), despite the fact that he completely ditched him once he got arrested and didn't bother with him...<a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74985">Read the entire review &raquo;</a></td></tr></table></blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p><div style="font-weight:bold;font-size:15px">Recommended</div><blockquote><table><tr><td valign="top"><a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74988"><img src="http://images.dvdtalk.com/covers/ts1631812399.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px" align="left" /></a><a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74988"><strong>Devil and the Deep (Blu-ray)</strong></a><br /><span style="font-size:11px">by Adam Tyner</span><div style="width:100%; height:1px; background: #fff"></div>Such a shame about Commander Charles Sturm (Charles Laughton) &ndash; as respected and revered a man as the Navy has ever produced, and yet his feckless wife (Tallulah Bankhead) can't even be bothered to hide her many indiscretions.
