Highly recommended!
17 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Have just seen this film on the recommendation of a friend. Great acting and looks superb when you consider this is a low budget Brit flick. It does exactly what it says on the poster, especially the soundtrack - truly cracking indeed, will definitely be buying the soundtrack album. I highly recommend it to everyone, and if you hurry, you'll get a free copy of Watch My Back, from which the film is adapted

  • great all round I'd say! I hope this film does really well - it


deserves too. Saw some of the press articles, which give you a sense of the work and love that has gone it to making it. I have also read some reviews which I found to be a little unfair - take it from me as your regular average 'joe' and not some jumped up pretentious film reviewer
  • this film is a must see!
