Based on real events?
29 November 2008 | by (Kent, England) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe this was based on real events; all that carnage for what? If it's depicted as accurate the shopping mall siege and the revenge for Billy's killing went on too long. The writing wasn't as tight as I'd expected from the write up on the back of the DVD cover which leads us to believe it is a relentless action movie full of high speed chases and action. It was, well, to a point ... once it got going, some 45 minutes in that is ... in events like this, there are always casualties and apart from the wounded, who hopefully recovered, it is so sad to learn that one of the policemen died and he'd recently become a father.

Nothing was gained by the gang at the end of the movie, except death for 2 of them and prison for the other 2, the leader was played by David Cubitt (a brief deviation from Detective Lee Scanlon in Medium) and while he gives a great performance as the ringleader (as did all of the other respective actors) I feel the writing could have been better. As it was, the story felt very loose and half hearted. The actors did their best but they were let down by the writing, directing and overall direction the powers that be wanted this movie to go.

Apologies to those who disagree, it's just my opinion that's all.
