STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

In his first TV role since Cracker,Robbie Coltraine returns impressively as a successful but ultimately bored legal barrister who takes up on a crook he helped aquit's idea that he use his skills to help mastermind ingenius robberies.His distinctive thick Scottish accent combines with his masterly sense of wit and cynism to create a character who morbidly ponders on the decadence of life,character traits that made his character in Cracker so engaging.Mind you,the leading performance is not the only thing that makes this movie riveting viewing.The supporting cast are perfectly watchable,but director John Strickland engagingly pens it out as a two part film,involving plenty of inventive and unexpected twists to add extra spice to the story that keep us engaged throughout.The ending's a little weak,but,so that at least it matches the end of this review,aside from this it's fine stuff.****
