Abysmal Thriller
13 June 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was a truly awful British thriller.It is impossible to find a good word to say about it.The acting veers from the mediocre to the amateur.Who thought that Danny Green could handle a foreign accent?The fight scenes are so badly arranged that each blow manages to be seen to miss its target by about one foot.Some of it doesn't even make sense.There is one scene towards the end when Demetrius and his partner drive into a wood to agree on a split.We next see a policeman get off his bike.Then we go back to the pair.A gun goes off but no policeman.We don't ever see him again.Demetrius kills his partner and pushes the car with him inside over a cliff,cue an abysmal model shot.At the end there is a fire in a warehouse and it is quite obvious that the smoke is an exposure over the main picture.This is the sort of film that gives B movies a bad name!
