Nick only just makes the train from Manchester to London before it leaves, but the man following him is already on the train waiting for him. There was no way for the man to know Nick would get that exact train beforehand, and in fact he very nearly did miss it. See more »

How on earth do Dyer and Hassan keep working???
12 March 2010 | by (canterbury, england) – See all my reviews

Certain people like to stand outside McDonalds rather than go to school that's how!

Again these two appear in a derivative quick to forget bargain bin British gangster movie with all the cock-er-ney geezer charm of Guy Ritchies Bowel movements, hell they even throw in the lesser supporting cast of Snatch, a far far superior movie. Gangster Rapper 50p must have had a spare 10 minutes while in London during a promo tour because he's a barely written cameo (who could have livened the film up in a beefier role) and the two strongest actors in the movie, Brenda Blethyn and Phil Davis just seem lost in their own embarrassment wondering what there agents where playing at.

The involvement of English Premiership footballers as executive producers would suggest the film was a plaything and an outlet for their rather substantial weekly wage and it's their money that probably paid for the clearance of an actually rather good soundtrack.

Leave this movie well alone unless you like tucking socks into trackie bottoms, listen to music on buses using a mobile and have many friends with Asbo's and trophy dogs, for the rest of us there's a bit of damp paint on the wall over there, it'll be dry soon.

3/10 for the soundtrack alone
