The British gangster film has been rising since a guy called ... Guy R. made his mark on that particular "genre" (or sub-genre or whatever you wanna call it). But while "Lock, Stock ..." and "Snatch" were somewhat original, this feels very formulaic. It's not so much the actors (though Mr. Dyer seems not to have a lot to do in this one or Tamers "woman", who only gets to get her kink on in some scenes), but the fact that you do know where this is going ... long before it gets there.
Now this isn't always entirely bad. But it would have been really good if the characters were better drawn. And I'm not only talking about the main characters, but also the supporting cast. They mostly stay bland, while they fail to be remarkable, not leaving any kind of impression you will remember after a few minutes.
Still and especially for fans, this will be somewhat satisfying and it moves along quite nicely, even if a few things feel forced (like the "twist(s)") towards the end of the movie.
