There is an offer you can't refuse!

You’d lie if you say there is no interest in crime flicks, as they not only offer you to peep into the underworld and the lives of those who break law and order, but also let you be partially involved in the onscreen adventures and showdowns. Yes, the genre’s lovers can rewatch The Godfather, Casino or Goodfellas, but what about something new?

Here are 6 overlooked crime gems you need to discover, according to Redditors.

  1. Lucky Number Slevin (2006)

First comes a star-studded neo-noir thriller, following a man who ends up in the middle of a showdown between two rival New York crime lords: The Rabbi and the Boss. Josh Hartnett, Bruce Willis, Ben Kingsley and Morgan Freeman are really convincing here.

  1. The Drop (2014)

Focusing on Tom Hardy ’s barman who becomes involved in an investigation of the robbery of the local pub where he works, the movie explores the theme of criminal authorities, as it turns out the place is runned by the mafia, getting in the way of police.

  1. True Romance (1993)

Written by Quentin Tarantino, this romantic flick about the newlyweds on the run from the mobs is truly a hidden gem.

“It is so perfectly crafted and executed from beginning to end and somehow I still get blank stares when referencing it,” says @herr_inherent.

  1. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

Next is Robert Downey Jr. ’s 86%-rated crime comedy, telling the story of a thief who unintentionally wins a screen test for a mystery film and lands in Hollywood, where he gets entangled in a murderous conspiracy together with his childhood crush.

  1. RocknRolla (2008)

Such a list would be impossible without mentioning some of Guy Ritchie ’s films, and here is one of his most underrated works. Gerard Butler-starring gangster flick follows a small-time hustler and the gang’s head in their attempt to perform a real-estate ruse.

  1. In Bruges (2008)

The last entry in today’s suggestions is Martin McDonagh’s black dramedy that focuses on two hitmen, played by Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, who are forced to hide in Bruges, Belgium, after they mistakenly kill an innocent boy during a difficult mission.
