Towards the end of the film, Ronni is seen to be wearing a camouflage shirt. This shirt was part of a uniform issued in the British Army known as Soldier 95. As the name suggests this uniform was issued in the mid 1990s and so would not have been available in the early 80s. See more »

I completely disagree with the vast majority of reviewers so far, this was a great film. Granted, it may be similar to other films of its genre, but the 80s settings were meticulous in my view. Spanish Guardia Civil with their feared (now banned) tri-corn hats, 80s cars, definitely NOT the modern Malaga airport, and the fashions and language used.
I left Cineworld feeling exhilarated - great soundtrack and good plot. I would recommend this film to anybody, Nick Love has done it again after the superb Football Factory. How can anybody call Danny Dyer Z-List?? Granted, he may be no Michael Douglas, but just because he is young, and obviously has a talent for the types of part he tends to play in movies, does not make him a bad actor at all, in fact, i think the exact opposite.
I will definitely be pre-ordering the DVD.
