Lords of London is the latest British crime drama but unlike some others, it doesn’t have a compelling plot and the acting is, at best, sufficient, and that includes Ray Winstone who is vastly wasted in his role. The DVD released by Lionsgate is basic with no bonus material while the video and audio transfers are average.

PLOT SYNOPSIS

London gangster Tony Lord (GLEN MURPHY) is the son of the notoriously ruthless Terry Lord (RAY WINSTONE). After a standard shakedown goes awry, Tony must confront his father’s past in order to alter the gritty, abusive path that his life is spiraling down.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included but there is a redemption code for the Digital Copy.

VIDEO – 3.25/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5

Lionsgate releases Lords of London presented with an anamorphic 2.40 widescreen transfer which is fine but shows, especially during the numbing opening credits, some major banding.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track provided is adequate with good dialogue levels and the aforementioned numbing score that plays over the opening credits that will make use of your LFE channel.

OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, Lords of London is the latest British crime drama but unlike some others, it doesn’t have a compelling plot and the acting is, at best, sufficient, and that includes Ray Winstone who is vastly wasted in his role. The DVD released by Lionsgate is basic with no bonus material while the video and audio transfers are average.
