Moneytrouble makes entertaining heist-flick
14 July 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The debt is well worth a watch, as we follow a bunch of criminals trying to make their way out of money-trouble in a complex everyday world. Lawyer, police, construction entrepreneurs and petty thieves - well you all got them here, in a complex, but still neatly told story.

Without telling too much, director Jon Jones has a great cast helping him get this everyday crime story to shine. Warren Clarke, Hugo Speer, Martyin Freeman and Lee Williams a head of a strong crew, makes this totally believable due to good acting. The story is told with a good portion of humor, though not so much that it makes this a comedy.

Geoff Dresner used to fix even the most secure safes when we was a criminal. Now he's happy working at a bakery, until his son in law, which is not at all trustworthy, and out of his daughter's life, seemingly tries to find back in a safe haven, due to a debt of £ 20.000 which he's not at all able to pay.

It's the worst kind of loan-sharks behind it, and Geoff feels forced to go back to his old criminal paths to get hold of the money, before the little family is beaten to death by the loan sharks hit men. The only trouble is that his son in law forces himself to join. The mistakes piles up, and not without troubles.

However, also the young lawyer, and one of the investigators are having problems on their own. How on earth can this end up in a happy Hollywood ending? Well, it's a British film, financed bu BBC, having all the qualities. A well recommended watch, which will entertain you all along.
