Have a drink before its gone...

The movie starts out pretty slowly and doesn't really pick up pace before the friends come up with a risky plan to get rich, without spoiling more of the story, that's all I will mention about that. The story told in "The Angels' Share" is about a group of young delinquents who are taken to a whiskey distillery where they concoct a plan that will make them rich. For a comedy then there was surprisingly little to laugh about throughout the course of the movie, which was a shame because it would have spruced up the movie. What worked in "The Angels' Share" was the cast, because they had managed to get some nicely talented actors and actresses. And it was nice to watch a movie with all new faces. There was a good chemistry amongst those on the screen. Another thing that worked well was the colorful and likable characters in the story. I loathe whiskey, so the whole aspect of it being a grand thing with the rare whiskey was lost on me. it all take like charred wood to me. For me, this movie was a mediocre experience, given the lack of comedy, and thus I score it five out of ten stars.

Amiable but lacking Loach's customary bite

'The Angels' Share' sees Ken Loach and screen writing partner Paul Laverty in relatively lighthearted mode: as usual with Loach, there's a sympathetic description of the plight of the urban poor, but there's also a cock-and-bull story about a money-making escapade, plus an extended plug for the Scotch whiskey industry. It's amiable and funny, but in places it feels formulaic: Loach is a gifted director at portraying everyday life, but his work with Laverty tends to follow a predictable template, and in this film, which lacks the rawest edges of his best work, this is a little too obviously exposed. Unusual too is the apparent sympathy for men so rich they could spend a million pounds on a cask of peaty alcohol.

Ken Loach in a surprisingly upbeat beauty of a film.....

Really surprised by Ken Loach! I've seen various of his films, and his films can be quite a cynical view on people at times despite the great ability to show humanity amongst it all as well. Here we have a more light-hearted movie as we see a handful of charming people who have been sentenced with community service to do, group together and find a cheeky way to get some money. Criminal it may be, but it all seems to not be (when it really is). Our main man really wants to change his life around now that he is a father and he is whom we concentrate our attention on. It's very funny, original, earthy and beautiful to watch. Some may have to concentrate to get to grips with the very strong Glasgow vernacular but it will be very much worth it. This is one I'd recommend to try. A nice simple gem of a movie. A really uplifting movie.
