Think good-old fashioned mobsters existed solely in New York, Chicago, and Vegas? Think again. These gangsters hail from England's green and pleasant lands (although they tend to hang around the dark satanic mills).
Just when you thought nothing could top the 1970s for neo-noir grit, along came 'Blood Simple', 'Body Heat', and 'Blade Runner'; thoroughly dark, flawlessly stylish, oddly alliterative, the 1980s surely did its part for the canon.
This list proves one thing for certain: the Brits get grit! Enjoy our collection of the finest British gangster movies out there, classic and modern. More Vinnie Jones than you could shake a stick at (although shaking anything at Vinnie Jones is probably not a good idea).
