Dated - The League of Gentlemen review by H|

Spoiler Alert

Quite entertaining when we first saw it decades ago. Fascinating views of central London when the traffic was so quiet. It really does look very dated now.

NOTHING to do with Messrs Shearsmith, Gatiss, Pemberton and Dyson - The League of Gentlemen review by Tartanian

Spoiler Alert
20/08/2021

Like an episode of TV's 'Columbo' we know who the criminals are and how they carry out their crime - we are with them all along the way, through the formation of the gang, the planning and training for 'the job' and its execution. We can be fairly sure that the group of armed bank robbers will be caught - the morality of the day (1960) meant that, Raffles-aside, crooks could not be seen to prosper - but who or what will be the cause of their downfall?

A cast of well-known faces - some of the 'oh, I know him from somewhere' type and others (such as Richard Attenborough and the group's leader Jack Hawkins) who probably remain as well-known now as then - light up the screen with unflamboyant performances*, sympathetically directed by consummate professional Basil Dearden.

* A special mention has to go to the 'blink and you'll miss it' cameo by Oliver Reed as a camp (ballet?) dancer - well worth the price of admission.

'The League of Gentlemen' is the kind of film I would characterise as 'wet, weekday afternoon' viewing - meant as a compliment - where no frame is wasted and the end seems to arrive unexpectedly early (as in 'where did the last hour-and-a-half go?').
