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

What a waste of time
28 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the worst films ever made, it seems like a cry out attempt to gain recognition as a gangster or should I say plastic gangster because Dave Courtney cant get it right or get any appreciation in the real world. A movie seems to be the only playground where he can manifest his egotistical and over exaggerated character to his liking, manipulating his surroundings to his own accord where he looks like a super hero. Perhaps a misspent childhood is the cause of this.

The plot, storyline and acting are all very weak, it seems like a lot of the actors minus a few are just random people of the streets who want to appear on a movie, this adds to the weakness of the film.

I can't even believe shops accepted to sell his DVD. The only thing it's useful for is too copy over and record something with a bit of class and style. The film shows no originality, no drive and certainly has no destination apart from the bin. Perhaps the only reason why Dave Courtney feels like he can act is because most of his life is one big act. He is nothing more than a bully boy who in the real world can't even fight unless he has a knuckle duster or a gun... wow that must really make him a man... He needs to get over himself, and all his followers need to stop sucking up to a wrong en and go do something useful with your lives instead of wasting it.

The fact he made a poor movie and wasted a lot of his own money because no one else would invest in such crap story shows that the man is clearly deluded in his own self belief and perhaps rather than making a movie to gain self appreciation, counselling would of been a far better investment and a lot cheaper.

I feel that the review I have given is valid considering i have many experience in the dynamics of movies from the God Father to modern day movies. And for Courtney to class his movie as a gangster movie is a big slap in the face to the real gangster movies that deserve better appreciation than to be followed in the same class as this crap.

If you are considering in buying this DVD just think of it as getting a pair of fake Armani Jeans. It's not the real thing it never will be. Perhaps this DVD would be better classed as a comedy or even better a mistake.

No doubt some followers (peabrainers) will retaliate in my review and I am sorry if you have taken it as an insult, but Courtney took the risk in making a movie he must be prepared to take criticism.
