RANKS ALONGSIDE "THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY"
3 October 1999 | by (CARDIFF, WALES) – See all my reviews

"THE SQUEEZE" is one of the best examples of a British crime thriller and ranks alongside "THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY" as the greatest in its genre.Stacy Keach gives an electric performance as burnt out alcoholic ex-cop Jim Naboth who is given a chance at personal redemption when his ex-wife and her daughter by her new husband are kidnapped by a very nasty band of security van robbers led by Irish mobster Stephen Boyd in his final screen portrayal (he died shortly after).The superb and gritty London locations are different from the norm and are charged with a gripping realism as the backdrop for a well told and suspenseful and violent tale. All the supporting players give sterling performances here even the mannered Edward Fox who forgets for once that he is not portraying British royalty and is effective as the husband of Naboth's ex-wife. The story climaxes satisfactorily with the bloody robbery and its aftermath and the movie will convince anyone looking forward to the Bond movie "THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH" that director Michael Apted can handle action sequences with aplomb although it is true to say that it is not a genre one immediately associates with him. All in all, "THE SQUEEZE" is as gripping and brutal a thriller as you could hope to see and shows that for once the British can actually make a film that does not bore the audience to death within the first ten minutes. On that basis,one "SQUEEZE" is worth twenty "ENGLISH PATIENT"'s.
