This film is so bad it makes me angry!
13 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I purchased this film under the impression it was in the mould of Lock Stock or Snatch, i.e. a British gangster film with comedic undertones. I was misled. I was confronted by a low budget film trying to be something good but failing drastically. The film seemed to contain violence and swearing merely in an attempt to try and look cool. Shooters also contained practically no humour at all (well none that appeared intentional). The only thing that stopped me giving this film 1/10 was the opening scene which I found ever so slightly amusing. After which I proceeded to get frustrated by the impossibly thick accents combined with a cheap DVD with no subtitles which meant i had very little to no idea what was going on throughout most of the film! I have only watched the film once (and it has since been banished from my DVD collection) so perhaps it gets better the more you watch it, who knows? Perhaps my high expectations prior to watching the film have led to me underestimating it and you may find it more entertaining than i did. I would not discourage people from watching it if you have nothing better to do, just don't pay to do so.
