Gripping , Fast paced , Great storyline
17 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well what can i say , from the first moment you are taken into a subject that every one has an opinion on. with it's fast paced action scenes and meaty story line you wont be disappointed. it's twists are as sharp as a roller coaster and the hidden context within the film is magic. a film made and directed all in the uk which is not seen much now days and it has stood out a mile away for me .this is the first film i have had the pleasure to see by this director i will be sure to look out for any future films he directs. Want a film that is fast paced , clever , and well thought out well this is one to watch. you will be asking your self the same questions that are shown in this film.
