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. Written by Alan Dunlop

Oh dear...new maxim...if it has bad in the title, it probably is
1 March 2011 | by (Elland, West Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

Wasted enough of my time watching the film to waste much more reviewing it, so suffice to say it was bad.

Acting = bad. Characters = bad. Script = bad. Story = bad. Fight sequences = bad. Driving in a wobbly car = bad. The over-illuminated dashboard = bad. The editing and score almost reached the dizzy heights of mediocre...but not quite and still = bad.

It started off bad then progressed to a new level of bad especially when being introduced to moody cop saying 'same sh1t, different day' to himself...and he was also one of the writers.

In fact, let's just comment about the writing. You know when one film pays homage to another by using some of the script...seems the writers thought this would be good but then changed every other word to avoid being the same resulting in what can only be described as...you've guessed it = bad.

What it looked like, was a school project with no budget and 25 script writers disagreeing so much that every piece of dialogue was an unsuccessful compromise.

Best bit was watching Donna Air being beaten up in a girl fight.

It was bad, okay? Not even one of 'Girl's Aloud' in the cast saves it.

My wife summed it up as the final credits rolled and she said, to the screen, "You should all be ashamed of yourselves". And if you do get this far, just ask yourself why all the detectives were blessed/cursed with OCD? Monk wannabes?
