Trivia

The social housing complex that Miller is living in is the Heygate estate at Elephant and Castle. You can see the Strata in one of the scene where Miller broke through some barricade to have the night view. The Heygate has since been demolished to make way for Elephant Park by Lend Lease.

paranoid concerns of war, government, crime, and loss of control comes together neatly
11 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

By far the best action movie I have seen in years. The story jumbles a bit but the acting is A1.this story definitely digs deeper then just boom sticks, Only one scene does the shoulder mount (i am assuming) get twitchy.The cast plays excellently with each other and the lead actors representation of p.t.s.d. is well done and not over played.the cinematographers/directors creation of an almost Dystopic present day was masterful. Well played and I have a feeling I will be following those involved for some time to come. Resisting the monopolized world of large effects c.g.i. and over the top action sequences this feature pulls you directly into the soldier, resisting action because its necessary until it boils over. I found myself begging the hero to be cool and not bite then at other times to attack with out mercy and the director seemed to carry us along on a more emotionally realistic battle of the personal experience. There are a few lacking or uncomfortable bits in here with dialogue being a touch to muddled or suppressed and the odd bad angle but these cracks by my opinion only added an authenticity to the style they were driving for.
