Down The Drain, 3 July 2013
Author: Theo Robertson from Isle Of Bute, Scotland

I've got the feeling I may have been lied to . The plot summary of the likes of IMDb say DOWN TERRACE revolves around a plot of a couple of gangsters being released from jail and trying to find out who grassed them up . This is misleading marketing because you might be expecting a Tarintino type story of revenge set in Britain . As the somewhat mixed comments on this page point out that's not really how the story unravels . The vast majority of the running time is taken up with the characters sitting around talking and swearing in a sort of British realist film that no one outside of the indie circuit will really want to watch Director

Ben Wheatley deserves some credit . He got off his backside and made a film on a shoestring budget with his own money instead of writing begging letters to the Arts Council . That said the first half of the film is a total drag with totally unlikable characters directed in a totally unengaging manner which is a serious flaw if a film is character driven . Perhaps I'm being uncharitable but many of the cast are poor and perhaps Wheatley should invested in better actors but it's to Mr Wheatley what he wants to spend his money on and I'm glad I didn't spend my own money watching it in a cinema
