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

Does crime pay? If your name is Dave Courtney, then the answer is yes!!
20 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would have expected this film to have attracted more than a mere two reviews on the IMDb by now. Maybe potential reviewers are somehow afraid that if they diss his film, Dave Courtney will somehow find out where they live and they will find themselves encased in concrete supporting a fly-over somewhere on the M25!! Dave Courtney is a "celebrity gangster" - a member of the old school of crime like The Krays or the Great Train Robbers. He is well out of the London crime scene these days, but makes a huge fortune on the back of his former exploits and has written a number of books. It is largely thanks to him that people get away with selling knuckledusters on eBay which are described as 'paperweights'!! He is certainly not a man to be trifled with.

His film is little more than an ego trip, produced on the back of the more popular "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" which itself featured a number of real East End crooks and hard-men in the cast. Courtney proudly boasts that the cast and crew of this film have done more prison stretches than the cast of any other film in history!! I doubt that record will ever be beaten.

It's a bit of a shame it has yet to reach a larger audience, because although it is not the best film I've ever seen, it is far from being the worst. It is certainly well above average and deserves to make Courtney a pile of cash. Not that he's short of a few bob anyway! 7/10
