Storyline

Europe's richest greyhound race takes place at Peterborough's Fengate Stadium. However, trainers and owners will not find this six-bend contest listed in any racing calendar as it is the dramatic final scenes of the new feature film, Six Bend Trap, already being dubbed a 'cult classic', with the final scenes actually shot at Peterborough Stadium. Billed as a cross between The Full Monty and Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, the gritty drama stars former East End gangster Dave Courtney. The film's creator and writer is Mike McCarthy, whose television credits include Boys From The Blackstuff and Spender added: The film is a darkly humorous, gritty drama, but it is not a gangster film and the integrity of greyhound racing is not compromised. The film's plot centres on a ruthless, rich businessman, Gordy Metcalf, who is played by Dave Courtney, who owns the best greyhound in the country. An ex-trainer sets a trap for three young men from a poor estate in North East England, who go on ... Written by Farukh Johnson

Absolute Garbage
21 April 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I do not usually bother reviewing movies....judging by personal taste is always fraught with danger....but this one.....WOW....terrible acting, soundtrack, production, direction....even the "live" band sequences at various venues have fading out recorded music.....my 4 year old son could mime better than the "Dan T's Inferno" members (pay particular attention to the drummer, who ain't NO drummer)....a script that sees itself as some type of cross between Snatch/Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels/Layer Cake/Stormy Monday/Sexy Beast and Cops and Watches (there is a Chaplinesque chase sequence thrown in....For what reason? I don't know!!) and fails to deliver on ALL counts (even on the Chaplin slapstick).....the best actor in the whole damn thing is Smoggie Dog (the greyhound)and that's probably because he does not have a speaking part......every single actor and even the background extras (watch for them to try and get their heads on a panning camera angle for as long as possible!)is trite, wooden, un-natural, and they would all be well advised to never use this crock of cr*p as a job reference.....the movie's ending leaves the option of future sequels.....I have one request Mr.McCarthy....PLEASE DON'T,PLEEEEEEEEESE
