A noble effort from first time director Tom Waller.
24 September 2000 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

A noble effort from first time director Tom Waller. Mixed reviews at the time it was released in Britain, but you can see that this guy shows considerable promise. Glad to see that someone is trying to make films other than Lock Stock! You should check it out for a rare performance by Paula Hamilton (where is she now?), and also Eastenders' Martin Kemp. Tomb Raider girl Rhona Mitra also has a cameo. . .
