Storyline

Rebecca Ryan has been working as an undercover agent for the Organised Crime Division (OCD) posing as a taxi driver, while investigating London's south-side mob. When she finds her young daughter Lynn brutally murdered she fears her cover has been blown wide open, so she turns renegade and begins a brutal campaign of vengeance against the mob she believes killed her daughter. As she trawls the seedy depths of London's underworld hunting down her daughter's killers, the lines between good and evil, right and wrong begin to blur as do her notions of justice and revenge. It falls to the world-weary OCD agent Darius Cuise and his newly-assigned, hot-tempered partner Abby Barrett to track down Rebecca and bring her in before all hell breaks loose.

Well worth My time
21 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bad Day is one of those movies that you shouldn't think hard about because it you do I fear the plot might fall apart, but saying that the movie is helped enormously by a skilled director employing really cool actors. All the featured cast here are in top notch form and, though I enjoy trying to measure how much license was taken by the screenplay, this movie never once made me feel cheated or bored.

Is it a brilliant film? No, but it's bloody entertaining. The action scenes here are in time with the drama scenes and that's odd and refreshing. Claire Goose was the best thing about it.

Ian David Diaz the director has done a very good job of creating the right mood and telling the story in such a way that the actors can do their work, without hindrance of an unrealistic story line. This film made me feel like I was watching an American cop movie; it was worth the price of the rental.
