Disappointing film that doesn't deliver
1 May 2010 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Mitchell (Nick Rendell) is a hard man debt collector who thinks he's hit it big time when he stumbles across £100,000 while collecting a debt from addled drug dealer Hopper (Italian horror veteran Giovanni Lombardo Radice)

However, it turns out that the money belongs to his new boss, gangster Curtis Boswell (victor D Thorn) who promptly sends Mitchell to find his loot. So begins a nightmare for Mitchell, who must stay one step ahead of his crime colleagues if he wants to stay alive...

A Day Of Violence is nothing special trash, and I've no problem with trash per se- as long as it's entertaining, but unfortunately, it isn't. Shot on video, it has unconvincing performances from Victor Thorn as the rather well spoken crime boss, as well as clichéd hard men in black suits spouting pretty woeful dialogue. It has one or two nice gore scenes and director Darren Ward's heart is in the right place, as the film is nicely exploitative. It just isn't very good, and you won't really care what happens to the characters anyway.

A Highly disappointing and mediocre film, it's probably best watched drunk, or else not watched at all, because nobody's missing anything here at all.
