wtf?
16 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...Like the previous poster, I am at a loss why this film has such a low rating.

Taut, well directed story telling of the highest order, featuring pretty well unknown actors.....by and large thats what we have here...actors...not 'stars' I would rather watch this a million times than have to watch some drippy Hollywood movie full of teens and explosions.

Highly recommended to anyone who likes their films British and well acted.

It's a new take on organised crime, and keeps enough of the kitchen sink (literally) element that marks all great British cinema, well worth a watch.
