Synopsis

A British gangster-flick trilogy. In 'Sexy Beast' gangster Gary Dove (Ray Winstone) has now retired to a villa on the Costa Del Sol, where he lives with ex-porn star wife DeeDee (Amanda Redman) and spends his time lazing by the pool and dining out with friends. All is well until Gary's former colleague, the psychotic Dan Logan (Ben Kingsley), arrives in Spain, determined to persuade him to do one last job. Dan is now in the employ of London crime kingpin Teddy Bass (Ian McShane), who intends to rob the bank of his sometime lover Harry (James Fox). Gary maintains that he has turned his back on his criminal past, but the bullying Dan is not prepared to take no for an answer... Whilst 'Gangster No. 1' is set in London, 1968. Gangster (Paul Bettany) is rising fast through the ranks of Freddie Mays' (David Thewlis) crime organization, his ruthless efficiency soon making him Freddie's right-hand man. But when Freddie falls for nightclub hostess Karen (Saffron Burrows), Gangster becomes jealous and begins to hatch a plot which will get rid of Freddie for good.
