Give it a go, 18 June 2011
Author: Philip Mackenzie from London

This film actually fascinated me. The cast are quite a mixed bunch and from all acting backgrounds. I was amazed to see Lee Ryan i had to do a double take but I thought his character was great and he played it well. Vinnie Jones always adds a threatening presence to the screen but this time it is on the right side of the law.Gary Stretch just plays it cool .

To summarise this up this is not your standard action film At first i struggled with the film, but after watching it all the way through realise that it has its own type of style "in a good way" and the music suits the film.Itseems to be like the European type hit men films.

Christopher Lee and Jean Marsh add some heavy names to the cast but to be honest are not on screen long enough to shine. My advice give it a chance and enjoy watching some good British actors working together.
