    London Boulevard has a fairly interesting story, but isn't able to do much with it. The story follows a newly released convict who picks up a job protecting a celebrity from the paparazzi. Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley, and Ray Winstone give barely adequate performances and aren't able to do anything with the material. The film has too many subplots that just clutter up the story instead of making it richer. Still, parts of the film work and it's able to maintain some thrill and suspense. London Boulevard is a mildly entertaining film, but it's instantly forgettable.moreless
