Absolute stunning performance of violence within
27 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jason Isaacs is a great actor but even he surpasses himself in this TV drama shown recently on Channel 4. His portrayal of a now domesticated bad boy is spot-on. I mean it. SPOT-ON. I've never seen an actor so realistically portray such a thug as he did here. I know people like the character he plays here. I've mixed in pubs where you have to get out pronto if someone like him looked at you the wrong way. Isaacs- for a Scouse-born actor is note perfect in his portrayal of the macho, masochistic, violent Londoner. His voice is just like every older geezer I've been around all my life. I see him in pubs all the time. The sheer power of his menacing turn here is in the raw documentary style but Isaacs never once falls back into a seemingly showy act-orly style. It's just in the mannerisms and dialogue. There is not one iota of violence on screen and yet the sheer dread you feel is from the performance. He plays a nasty piece of work without once actually being nasty. I truly haven't seen anyone play such a realistic role. I know it comes from the fact that I identify with people like the one he plays but I am still a fan of acting and good actors. I thought Carlyle's vicious portrayal of Begbie in Trainspotting and all of Nil By Mouth was good till I saw Jason Isaacs here. He is truly menacing. Great, great drama that should have got a wider audience.
