Cool Crime Independent, 18 February 2004
Author: MattTracker from Reynoldsburg, Ohio

Give and Take, and Take is about Will Kane (an understandable reference to Gary Cooper's character in High Noon) and Ricky Hammond (a ref to 48 Hours? - This is a kind of buddy movie afterall), two likeable crooks doing little errands for gangsters in London's famous East End. After they decide to cut open an old, dead friend of theirs to retrieve condoms full of heroin from his gut, events turn nihilistic (more so!).

A colorful, imaginative low budget crime action film, there is a clever balance of genuine plot and intense action too. I spotted knowing references in there to LA Confidential, Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrells, Heat, True Romance, Reservoir Dogs, Alfie, El Mariachi, King Of New York and Mean Streets. I think the film makers probably want that to be part of the fun. See how many you can spot!

Cool indie flick.
