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.

Bad movie? No way!!!!
16 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After reading the comparatively bad reviews on this film I decided to buy it and give it a watch, I didn't expect much.

Oh man was I wrong! One of the most enjoyable UK low budget movies I've seen in a long time, it had humour, interesting characters and very, very reverting storyline, bad movie? No way!!!! Well, the story wasn't original because it was a homage to the US cop movies. The action didn't quite blow me off my seat but it was good enough, love the fight between Donna Air and Claire Goose. Claire Goose was awesome in this roll killing people and working her way to the truth. Great twist at the end! Anthony Ofoegbu makes his debut I think, and does so convincingly, he was fun as the seen it, done it all cop, I was surprised at Donna Air's performance, she wasn't that bad, in fact she was really good, very believable. My guess is she had a good director behind her.

Should you see this film? Yep! It's well directed by Ian David Diaz, with his visual style and mood he made something that kept me watching till the end. I was surprised! 9/10
