    Lately I watched few older good criminal movies and still have a thirst for more blood;)
    Last night I watched "Presumed Innocent" with Harrison ford and was shocked that I missed it back in a days.

    What was a good criminal movie you guys watched and would recommend?
    I've seen a LOT of movies, but please share any ideas, so we could build up a nice list:)

    Scarface has everything you could want I think. I'm sure you've seen it but on the off chance you haven't it's well worth a go.

    Lawless and Public Enemies both spring to mind as more recent offerings. Not particularly violent as such but I enjoyed them both quite a bit.

    Action with a crime-bent/criminal lead:
    Transporter series (1s great, 2 is hilarious, 3 not so great)
    Cranked series is in a similar vein

    Classics:
    The Fugitive is worth a watch (or even its more recent "sequel", US Marshalls, isn't half bad)
    Ronin
    Heat
    Italian Job (original) - remake is fun as long as you turn your brain off
    LA Confidential

    "Gangsta":
    Lock Stock
    Snatch
    Layer Cake

    Other, crime-related:
    51st State
    Catch Me if You Can
    Parole Officer
    Swordfish
    Training Day

    The Usual Suspects?
    Ocean's 11-13?
    (although granted, 12 & 13 weren't as good as 11)

    Infernal Affairs 1-3 always entertains me. But everyone's seen those by now, usually.
