Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘The Drop’

3 Submitted by on Thu, 11 September 2014, 11:01

Tom Hardy rescues an adorable talking dog and the two go on magical adventures through the mysterious kingdom known as Brooklyn. With a few minor reductions in whimsy, that is basically the plot of The Drop, directed by Michaël Roskam (Bullhead). It also happens to boast the very last on screen appearance of the late James Gandolfini.

Slipping on their fedoras, tench coats, and several thick layers of grit, The Unusual Suspects sit down to narrate this review of the latest in neo noir.

And because they’re stand up guys from the old neighborhood, Brian, J.C., Will, and Chris would like to warn you that this review gets a little more spoilery than most. Not for nothing, but you been warned, right?
