An excellent combination of violence, gangsters and lashings of gore!!!
19 December 2009 | by (Romsey, England) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this at it's premiere. And I feel compelled to comment on the quality of this excellent effort from Mr Ward and his merry crew. The story may not be the most original, but I feel that the execution was flawless, especially considering the budget limitations. The quality of the cast also helps lift the film from the gaggle of other low budget films available. Particularly of note was (Dr)Nick Rendell's excellent portrayal of the morally conflicted main character Mitchell - I look forward to seeing more of his work! The special effects used in the film also deserve applause (I think they may well have won an award), Particularly in the film's centrepiece scene (I won't spoil it for you). Just be warned - it is not for the feint of heart!! All in all, if you like a good old fashioned gangster film laced with lashings of both violence and gore then look no further than this superb effort. 10 out of 10. A word to the director - How about a follow up to the also excellent Sudden Fury? Please Mr Ward, Please!!
