A handful of hilariously vulgar one-liners can’t rescue this caustic comedy. Jude Law plays the title character, an arrogant and ill-tempered safecracker who is released after 12 years in a London prison, wanting revenge against some gangsters who owe him money. Unfortunately, this misguided story of redemption is so obnoxious that any emotional connection seems impossible.
