The Drop is a really good movie, but what else can you expect if Tom Hardy’s in it? It may be slow sometimes, and eventually you may find yourself asking for clarification, but the acting here helps encourage you to not want to look away. The depth of Hardy’s character is ridiculous when you take the time to think about it. The pacing is consistent and tied together with the music creates a film that keeps your attention. You never quite know any character until the climax–then it all hits you like a ton of bricks. It’s amazing. And it’s impressive on a technical scale as well.
It never takes itself too seriously and Hardy is charismatic as ever. And while it doesn’t break new ground as far as the crime-drama is concerned, it’s perhaps one of the best servings from that genre that we’ve seen all year.
