Thomas Ikimi edited the film and then Richard Graham was brought on to refine and re cut parts Thomas' edit. Richard Graham's input was invaluable as he somehow managed to shave off 15 minutes of the film but still maintain the integrity of Thomas' edit, which Richard respected.

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.
