Panic and intrigue grip the lives of a group of hardened factory workers with the arrival of a man they fear is a head-office spy sent to rob them of their redundancy payouts. The ruthless baiting between top dog Jack and his men only intensifies when the pacifist of the group, Wesley, befriends the seemingly normal outsider, David. But when Wesley discovers David is hiding a much darker secret, the seeds are planted for an explosive finale that strikes like an emotional sledgehammer and seal the fate of The Nothing Men.

Just when you thought you knew were this was going ... it does not exactly take that route. While it is played out as ... well play, it does depend mainly on the actors and the story. And while the actors try their best, it's the story that could have been helped with a bit of a re-write or polish.
The unknown is sometimes what is appealing. Though sometimes not that appealing. And while the ending is strong, it also feels wrong, because there is almost no sympathy you could feel for some of the people. And to say that some things are convenient would be a major understatement. But then again its a movie and thats the way it is. Still good, but unfortunately not as good as it could have been
