After a brilliant twist ending in the third season, Peaky Blinders is back with crazy intensity from its first moments. However, once-tight family bonds that are now stressed dampens the atmosphere of the show.
Coming from America, Luca Changretta (Adrien Brody) wishes to avenge the death of his father at the hands of the Peaky Blinders. Polly (Helen McCrory) has wavering faith in Tommy (Cillian Murphy) leading to a familial row. Union convenor Jessie Eden (Charlie Murphy) takes on the wage problem at Shelby Company Limited.
The quarrel between the Italians and the English is intense and will leave you with many jaw-dropping moments. There are so many twists this season that you’re unsure of what to believe.
The youngest Shelby, Finn (Harry Kirton), gets some well-deserved screen time allowing for some character development.
Final say: An intense ride. ★★★★☆
