Britain is a mixture of despair and hedonism in 1919 in the aftermath of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly minted revolutions and criminal gangs are fighting for survival in a nation rocked by economic upheaval. One of the most powerful gangs of the time is the Peaky Blinders, run by returning war hero Thomas Shelby and his family. But Thomas has bigger ambitions than just running the streets. When a crate of guns goes missing, he recognizes an opportunity to advance in the world because crime may pay but legitimate business pays better. Trying to rid Britain of its crime is Inspector Chester Campbell, who arrives from Belfast to try to achieve that goal.
This British gangster drama is positively bursting with energy. Cillian Murphy, in the main role of Tommy Shelby, is the key to the success of the show--the show would not work without his fine and subtle work in his role, and making it look absolutely effortless. Tommy Shelby may not be a good man, but he’s a phenomenally watchable one.The outdoor set is a marvel--that adds excitement and visual drama to outdoor scenes, to remind the viewer that walking out the door is dangerous for every person in that neighborhood, whoever they are. On a nuts-and-bolts level, the show has distinct flaws, but it excels at creating intense moments and visceral moods, and that makes up for a lot.--Maureen Ryan, Huffington Post, March 9, 2015
