BATTLES is the tale of a man who has run away from his home life as he suffers from depression. He hides away in a hotel room waiting for someone or something to give him the strength he needs to return to reality.
A refreshing UK offering that strikes a great balance between urban crime story and social comment tinged with just the right amount of comic relief. Terrific characters brought to life by a great cast. Slow at first but the tension that is created is well worth it - you are drawn down the often dark journey with hints of light allowed to shine. You just never know when and how. The sensational acting does not let the script down. One hopes that this first film of Greg Loftin will pave the way for new investment so that his next film does not have to be on such a shoe string budget. Not that it suffered from a low budget
the script and acting make up for it completely.
