  • Though The Drop covers familiar ground, it simmers with charged emotion. The image that lingers belongs to Gandolfini. show more

  • Hardy's performance takes a little bit of the sting away from seeing Gandolfini perform on a big screen for the last time. As irreplaceable as Gandolfini may be, it's invigorating to see a young actor elevating to similar heights right before your eyes. show more

  • Drop is based on Lehane's short story Animal Rescue, and the terrific cast and punchy dialogue make it particularly worth seeing, bringing energy to a deliberately-paced tale that occasionally feels plodding. show more

    Loved the movie. It is hard to keep my attention or fulfill my movie needs. Murder mysteries are my favorite and this did well. The ending was kind of abrupt though. Tom Hardy is quite the looker, which helps.
