Storyline

Two toughs from the wrong side of the tracks in Manchester, choose different paths when they are released from prison. The quiet Ray wants out of the 'gangsta' life and into the local music scene with his pals, while his brash, emotional partner Terry wants to dominate the city's criminal community. His strange fixation with Ray and his pathological need for respect that he cannot show to others in return, lead him to make some impulsive moves that result in violent death and tragedy for all concerned.

Boyz N The Full Monty
1 June 1999 | by (York) – See all my reviews

Despite the low budget and often unfocused script, this gangster thriller from Andrew Goth proves to be quite absorbing. Notable for a fleeting appearance by David Bowie as a camp underworld villain who loves to say "Sweet as a nut" a lot, this is really a vehicle for Wolverhampton's Goldie, the best selling musician and now actor who looks like he was born to plays bad guys. It's an often violent affair with Goldie's character proving to be a little too terrifying, especially when he assaults gorgeous newcomer Rachel Shelley. Some memorable scenes: Goldie, his head framed almost in a religious aura; the Black Rain style face off with Chinese gangsters and a decent dance number near the movie's finale. Reminiscent of Danny Cannon's The Young Americans, this looks to be a suitable calling card for any Hollywood producer looking to hire Goth for an American project. No classic but try and stick with it as there are a few diamonds in the rough.
