Engrossing and touching
8 June 2010 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

Justin Kerrigan makes a fine return to directing after many years of absence. Charlie's son discovers that his dad is involved in secret activities and that their lives may be in danger. However the stress of the situation is slowly sending Charlie into a spiral of paranoia and desperation. The whole film pretty much revolves around the loving relationship between the two and the boy's efforts to unravel the mystery on his own since he can tell no one of his dad's mission; Who is out to get them? Who are Charlie's employers? What is the secret of the creepy satellite TV company? And who is the biggest danger to Jamie, the school bully or the strange man at the bus stop who's always watching him? It's all done in a very low key way with no action but with with an ever mounting sense that something may be deeply wrong and something awful might happen. Because of that and the gripping performances I strongly cared about the characters and felt major tension in certain scenes towards the end. Touching and powerful. I can't wait to see what Justin does next he has talent and heart, welcome back Justin we missed you Bruvva!
