Beyond Soho/Tank Malling
15 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen both these version of this Films, Beyond Soho is a much better cut, a few minutes shorter ,which makes it more dynamic,it moves much better. This film was shot in 1988.Early days for the actors, who have gone on to more fame,with the more work you get,the better you get. Ray Winstone has gone on to be a household name,but in this film you can see what he eventually achieved,think of a boxer having his first fight, and 20 fights later he is a world champion,so watching these you see a major star emerging,Glen Murphy, became the major actor in The TV series Londons Burning, Amanda Donohoe ,i could go on and on so many good actors.And remember this was a real independent film produced by Glen Murphy and Jamie Forman.I understand,this film is soon to be released on DVD.I have watched it recently on Sky TV.and cannot wait to get the DVD
