Despite the natural chemistry of Andrew Shim and Ben Marshall the two actors almost came to blows during a scene due to Marshall's obnoxious behavior. Paddy Considine admitted in the DVD commentary he had no problem filming the scene at the seaside where he threatens Marshall's character, saying he "couldn't wait to get his hands on the little shit."

Let me get to the point about this film. Paddy Considine is outstandingly brilliant in the role that should have made him an icon if anyone had bothered to see it! He is at once dynamic, dangerous, disturbing and occasionly comic. He reminded me of Travis Bickle that De Niro so brilliantly played in Taxi Driver. High praise indeed, but very deserving as we are in an age where everybody moans about British cinema without bothering to seek gems like this out. So well done to Shane Meadows, keep churning out class like this and 24/7 and you'll become a legend!! From The West Midlands
