Excellent Film
19 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film is a great British film. I think the features that make this film so great are the use of no massive special effects, no cars jumping over buildings but a good solid performance from Paddy. It has everything a great film should have, a decent story line, its a bit sad, you get into the film because it could be a true story because this sort of things happens a lot as someone is bullied where a group pick on a weaker person. The cool calm collective Richard is excellent, they way his role is played makes the film that bit better as he is not afraid what so ever, classic revenge film all though when i first watched it i thought "this is a bit harsh killing them for bullying him, just beat them up" then you find out the real reason at the end alongside the powerful music which just gives you that gut feeling when you find out the twist. Hope to see more films like this one, who said the Brits cant make good films hey?
