Storyline

Larry Malone sets up his brother Dave to get rid of Murphy, a rival gang leader, and then informs on Dave to have him convicted of murder. In one simple act of double-dealing he, consequently, removes both his main rivals and clears the way for expansive future plans for his crime family. After a few months on remand, Dave is acquitted at the Old Bailey after producing a fake videotape showing him entering a club on the night of the murders. Suspicious of his brother, Dave starts to question some of Larry's activities: especially his use of guns and his movement into the more lucrative drug scene. Larry, meanwhile, picks up Johnny, Murphy's son, when he is released from prison and using Johnny's need to revenge his father's death, employs him to track down and kill Dave, hence aiming to give himself total control of their crime family. Dave employs Freddie, the son of one of the gang who's died 'in service', to drop £100,000 off in order to buy a painting by Ronnie Kray which is being... Written by Phil A. Ballard

Great Fun - The Real London Underworld Collides With Balls-Out Guerrilla Film-making
6 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this at a market screening in Cannes some time ago and I found it to be tremendous fun. I don't know if this version has changed much since then but if you're fans of Dave Courtney and his well known associates then I think you will agree that his central semi-autobiographical performance shines, and he has charisma in spades. Billy Murray is excellent as Dave's villainous sibling and there are some great supporting characters played by Dave Legeno, Terry "Turbo" Stone, Scott Welch and too many others to name. Some hilarious one-liners and naturalistic performances are punctuated by some genuinely disturbing violence (a scene where a snitch is hung up and beaten is as convincing as anything in a Scorsese film) and a killer soundtrack. The film climaxes with a great action-packed shootout at some docks. The opening credits sequence was hectic fun as well. Obviously the film is not perfect but this is genuinely an absolute must-see for fans of Dave, Billy, the real London Underworld and guerrilla digital film-making alike.
