A double bill of Brit flicks. In 'Sexy Beast' (2000) 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 in 'The Limey' (1999) cockney criminal Wilson (Terence Stamp) emerges from a nine-year prison sentence to discover that his estranged daughter, Jenny, has been killed in a car crash. When he finds out that Jenny was having an affair with American rock promoter Terry Valentine (Peter Fonda), Wilson flies out to Los Angeles, looking for revenge. Upon his arrival he is beaten up by thugs apparently employed by Valentine, and so embarks on a one-man crusade to discover how Valentine was involved in Jenny's death.
