  • 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

    Love a good gangster movie. Loved the ending. And as the owner of a Blue Nose Pit Bull, loved the dog. Also as a huge Soprano's fan, seeing Gandolphini as a guy that basically wanted to be Tony Soprano was kind of cool. 2 Thumbs up from me. We miss you Tony, PL

    I'm from New York and they got the accents all wrong, except for Jim. I liked the puppy, though.
