Storyline

Two working-class Englishmen spend their free time arguing about greyhound-racing and Winston Churchill. They also read the papers, especially the gossip columns and Society pages. In a bar one day, they meet a film star who they've read about, and subject him to a savage, and apparently motiveless, beating. Written by Peter Brynmor Roberts

Shocking, should have never released it!
23 February 2014 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Now I am a huge fan of Al Pacino, namely for films such as scent of a woman, Insomnia, Sea of love, City of Angels and a few others. Now the first thing I have to mention is the accents, let's get this out of the way.

In short, the accent is absolutely terrible and I cringed every time they spoke (not just Pacino but others in the film), and yes I am British and have traveled and lived all around the UK (including down south were these accents are meant to portray) and NOBODY British sounds like that. In fact while I am on this topic, MOST American attempts of British accents are generally always bad, they seem to think we're all upper class posh southerners that speak in a cliché royalty accent and tone, and it simply isn't like that at all, and is aggravating. Let this be a lesson to all attempts for future reference.

Now the film in general is just bad, the acting isn't great, I constantly felt as though this is a play and was constantly reminded of that during the film, the camera work was bad and the overall execution was just poor. No wonder it took so long for him to decide to release it, but he should never have bothered, just don't waste your time - it may only be ~50mins but I can think of much better things to do.
