Storyline

Upper middle class employee Tom ventures into a derelict squatter building to buy a gun from D, a cocky but stupid, homeless crack-junkie, who meanly tries to extort above the agreed price. As D stole the gun from his macho dealer Hoodwink, the bully is on the warpath to get it back by beating up all his pushers in turn and order them to get it, anyhow. Tom's attempts to reason with Hoodwink or buy off his wrath only get him seriously abused. He and D gradually get to know what makes the other tick and digress for reasonable life.

Unbelievable Rubbish
6 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie after reading some of the positive IMDb reviews and cannot help but wonder whether or not I saw the same movie. Maybe there is a parallel universe in which this movie has a different plot and doesn't suck.

I have no problem with the fact that this movie is almost entirely set in one location. I thought most of the actors did their part in trying to make this movie work with some great performances, most notably those of Steven Mackintosh (Tom), Ashley Walters (D) and Andy Serkis (Hoodwink). But despite their valiant efforts and the fact that the movie is beautifully shot, the appallingly unrealistic plot dragged this whole movie down into the gutter.

I felt compelled to write this review to save you wasting an hour and a half of your life watching this movie like I did. I feel robbed and want my time back.
