Tight, and "gritty" and Danny Dyre is (again) outclassed
OK. I was prepared to but fairly unimpressed. The only other 2 reviews included one neutral one and one from the production company.
But all in all, I WAS impressed. The story line throws you a few unexpected left of field surprises, the bad brothers are suitably bonkers, the violence was - well, OK - realistic, I suppose.
But the best thing, for me, was Robert Cavanah. He plays a complex lead, in a tough situation - in a number of ways - and he plays it very very well.
Danny D continues not to live up to what he seems to think his potential is. On the other hand, I guess he's making money.
And the votes for this film? 2.6/10 at the moment? Nearly half the votes are at 1, but none of them have left a review? Someone CLEARLY doesn't like this film, and doesn't want it to be a success on IMDb.
