Donavon is released from prison and is hired as a bouncer to protect a nightclub from a violent London gang.
Obscure early British shot on video gang thriller that is much better than you might think. Acting is quite shaky to say the least, some of the direction/shot choices is on a par with home movies and the less said about the editing the better, but somehow none of that matters because it remains a watchable and fairly entertaining low-budget film. Writing has some wonderfully funny lines- "I didn't know this was a gay bar, it's not, what about those 2 p**fs at the end of the bar then" brilliant, the pic is also littered with fairly laughable plot points like falling in love after a couple of hours, being beaten into a pulp and then in the next scene walking around without a mark on them. The romance is very funny/ridiculous but adds to the overall charm of it all as does the lounge music that plays throughout, its not bad but doesn't fit with the violent scenes on screen. The violence itself is fairly entertaining in an unconvincing way, a lot of it misses its mark but there is a couple of graphic shots that are a bit more convincing and the final scenes are surprisingly very good.
As far as I'm aware this has only ever had one release on the World Of Video 2000 tape label in 1983 with the tagline more brutal than The Long Good Friday, well not quite, this release was added to the Section 3 nasties list of seize-able titles here in the UK, but the film is a hell of a lot better than it has any right to be. Obviously made with little money & resources but by people who were out to make as entertaining a film as they could and were as successful as they could've hoped.
