Clearly building on the success of Life on Mars and the relationship between John Simm and Philip Glenister comes Tu£sday; a movie about 3 separate groups of characters, all out to rob an Emerald from a bank and all decide to rob it at the same time.
Except it doesn't. I didn't care about the characters. I didn't care about the storyline and the bad Liverpool and Glaswegian accents just grated on me.
Hoping it would be a kind of Lock, Stock with the multiple interwoven story lines centred around a bank robbery, i was woefully disappointed.
The time line jumps around between scenes and slowly builds up everyone's story. Unfortunately this is just confusing rather than clever. The robbery is deeply uninspired and just a little too 'regular' for a movie. Adrenalin-pumping it is not! The actors look bored throughout and the film ends with the most predictable anti-climax I've seen in a long while.
I waited and waited for something exciting to happen. But nothing does, it just plods along at its own little pace, then it ends.
The only commendation I can give it, is that it's a nice trim 79 minutes so you won't waste too much of your life on it. Even 3 of those are spent on the most dull opening credits I've seen in a long while.
