The Drop: Review

Finding himself at the centre of a robbery plot gone awry, Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) become embroiled in a criminal plot and police investigation.

The Drop presents you with a basic plot, yet, we are slowly endeared to Bob. He is a simple, gentle, kind soul, and steals everyone’s heart when he helps a puppy. Said puppy goes on to steal many scenes from the main characters, as this little creature becomes part of the story, along with new found friend to Bob, Nadia (Noomi Rapace).

Although not one to tax anyone’s thinking cap, the story is well written, and told. Hardy once again shows he is one of today’s greatest actors.

The Drop is a great story, bound to entertain everyone, and leave viewers with a smile as the credits role.

The Drop opens in South African cinemas 14 November 2014
