Statement in opening titles: "This story is inspired by a single true event. It left three men dead, two serving life imprisonment and another living under an assumed identity. The rest is fiction, as are all the characters." See more »
I just viewed this video, then have read the reviews and am stunned. Was I watching another movie? Sure the characters are shady, but what do you expect, Scorsese-esque, Soprano-ish likeable lots? This is about the seedy, Darwinian underworld and has a compelling story about how Billy (a more cerebral, physically minute character) gets slowly pulled into the bowels of greed and acrimony. The acting is intense and uncompromising. Alex Kingston is wonderful and the actor who played Billy was smart. Certainly not academy award, but interesting fodder nonetheless. A mixture of Sexy Beast & GoodFellas. 7/10
