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.

A great small UK film that has been ignored, an Indy gem!
4 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bad Day starts off slow but ends up a fast-paced thriller, at times the story is a little hard to follow but whatever confusion you experience the answers follow as the movie moves on.

The film is great, I thought the acting was fantastic, the story dark and brutal and the ending and twist was worth the price of the rental, I don't want to go into too much detail you'll have to watch the movie to see what I am talking about.

I'm glad that I gave the movie a chance, I'd say for you to give it a chance to. You'll be surprised. It's a good, decent UK film. Not a typical cops and robbers film but the writer and director Ian David Diaz made it all work. I will be looking for more of his stuff in the future! Rent this one if you have never seen it, worth every penny and every minute!

I give this movie a perfect 10. Get it, see it, and recommend it to friends. An excellent Movie, well shot, well directed, solid story and a great ending!

It's certainly a far cry away from the old Hollywood formula.
