Plot Summary

During the mid 1980s Howard Marks (Rhys Ifans) had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines and owned 25 companies throughout the world. Whether bars, recording studios or offshore banks, all were money laundering vehicles serving the core activity: dope dealing. At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to 30 tons of marijuana from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organizations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA and the Mafia. This is his story.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If "Mr. Nice," which was written and directed by Bernard Rose, is steadily watchable, it lopes along without building much tension. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 2, 2011

Fresh: Writer-director Bernard Rose lets the picture bop along a little too loosely, but the vibes are good. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 15, 2011

Rotten: Ifans looks 20 years too old for the part, and the problem with the movie is it seems so desperate to be made that it barely cares that he spends half of his time miscast. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Sep 8, 2011

Rotten: [Ifans] captures the character's charisma and cool, and it's fun to ride shotgun with him. But the script isn't pointed enough to drill beneath the surface. – Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jul 29, 2011
