Sean Bean stars in "Extremely Dangerous," a TV movie from England.
I watch a TON of British series and films, and I'm also a little hard of hearing, so it's a drag when there is no closed captioning. Someone here wanted the film dubbed in "American English" -- the British slang doesn't bother me, but sometimes you just can't get what they're saying. This was a somewhat complicated plot, so it made it hard.
Bean plays Neil Byrne, who was convicted of the brutal slaying of his wife and daughter. On a train with the police, a la The Fugitive, he escapes, changes his appearance, steals, and does whatever he can to elude the corrupt police who, working with organized crime, set him up. In fact, eventually he actually drops in and visits some of them. They don't dare kill him because they still need him as a scapegoat.
This is pretty good but a little long for what it is. A real standout is Nitin Ganatra, who runs the taxi office where Neil starts working. Sean Bean, as always, is handsome and does a good job, particularly in the heavy, dramatic moments where his talent was really needed. Entertaining.
