Underworld rides out the Cockney gangster clichés
28 June 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

With its pathetic drip of a hero and its Cockney gangster psychopaths Underworld could easily have been just another clumsy comedy pastiche, instead it is a gem.

The series is well written, produced and directed, its story brought to life by superb performances. It has an engaging plot whose many twists are sustained by a witty script.

Underworld is a kind of Midsommer Murders-paced bastard child of Mike Leigh and Guy Ritchie (although I think it pre-dates Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels).

This is a great show, and can currently be watched for free on Channel 4's "4OD" website in the UK - which I highly recommend you do!
