Trivia

Niamh Morrison not only handled prosthetics but also handled aspects of makeup as well. Her work was so authentic that Thomas and other crew found it hard to look at Idris Elba's scars on some days. Particularly the infamous 'back scene' day. See more »

Ignore the IMDb rating...
9 February 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was shocked when I looked this movie up to see that its rating. For a film with a smaller budget it is excellent. Fans of The Wire will be pleased to see Idris Elba in a challenging role. Fans of Batman Begins/The Dark Knight, will recognize Joe Chill and Detective Ramirez. Eamonn Walker plays a sympathetic antagonist and brother to Idris Elba.

The film itself takes place after a failed mission and Malcom Gray (Idris Elba) holds up in a dingy apartment alone. As the film proceeds it becomes clear that not everything is what it seems. For a low budget psychological thriller, there is quite a lot of action.

Sadly, I think this movie is destined to be under-rated and under- appreciated. Give it a chance, you won't be disappointed.
