Wheeling And Dealing!
8 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Authentic settings and honest performances add credibility to this unflinching tale of friendship and betrayal in the capital. Set against a backdrop of amateur boxing and rogue drug-running black cabs, this raw slice of London life packs a long-overdue punch of realism in a British crime genre full of comic-book criminals.

A tough, uncompromising film about life-long friendship and hard choices, it covers the clash of ideals, deceit and betrayal with brute force - performances and direction harking back to Alan Clarke, where the characters are not criminal cardboard cutouts but as real as if they'd been snatched straight off the street.

Once you watch the film, you'll never look at cab drivers in the same light, you'll be left wondering, who's taking me for a ride?
