Nicky wants to go straight, but the world seems to have other ideas ...
After a spate of dreadful Brit' crime thrillers, finally a (semi) original crime based caper with a rom-com edge.
Fine performance from Chiwtel Ejiofor as the luckless Nicky, an ex-con who finds himself trapped between the police, gang boss Rameez, psycho thug Mickey (an insane Beesley), and Fitch (Bolam) a throw-back to the old days of the Krays.
As fate conspires against him, it seems he'll never get it together with the beautiful Noreen (a post M:I-2 low key appearance by from Newton).
And some of the best dialogue since Snatch.
