the classic ex offender trying to make goog
21 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this film is under rated.

As somebody who has done time in Asia and come out, i get the level of acting the lead role diplays. His body language is classic ex con.

Even the early fight scenes show blocking skills but no retalliation in a way hat took intelligent study. Or an actor that got into his role. Admitedly the daughter role iscast a bit shallow but that not acting error thats direction or script re writes I guess.

Its not subtle but neither was Will Shakespeare.

This film is up with Breath and Chingoo. One of the best films I have seen in quite a while. coming from somebody who watches way way to many films

Watch and judge for yourself.

Somebody has made the effort to adjust the genre.
