Did You Know?

Actor, Terry Stone, Plays the character Tony tucker in both this and 'Rise of the Footsoldier', which is also based on the Essex boys murders. In fact, a lot of actors who appear in this movie also feature in Footsoldier but in different character parts. Dave Legano plays Jack Wholmes in this film, but played Big John in Footsoldier. Neil Maskel (Craig rolfe) played the role of Darren Nicholls in footsoldier.See more »
Anachronisms: When Craig Rolfe is arguing with his wife at their home he open and slams shut the fridge, several of the fridge magnets are clearly visible and relate to films and events that took place well after 1994, in the top left hand corner you can clearly see a fridge magnet of Doug the talking dog from the movie Up (2009).See more »

Pleasantly surprised, 24 December 2012
Author: djkbee from London

Im not understanding all the bad reviews here. I think to watch this movie for a start you need to have the acquired taste of east-end London cockney slang and gangster culture (drugs, sex and a lot of the word c**t) I was sceptical about this one... i kind of gave up with anything Tamar Hassan is in due to the disappointing movie releases he has had since The Business by Nick Love. I watched the likes of city Rats for example and was shocked he would take part in such a crap movie after the success of the Business. I feel like Tamar Hassan has been trying to get that 'right movie' of the cockney gangster that works well and has failed until this one! I saw this on Netflix so on a rainy day gave it a go with super low expectations expecting to turn off by the quarter way through mark. I was wrong, i was hooked on this one. Had a good few laughs at the raging scenes which are full of colourful language and i thought the storyline was enough to keep me watching. Stunned at all the bad reviews on here.
