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.

Good Film, Tony Kebbell was very good.
23 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film shows the aftermath of a Veteran returning home to England after serving in the middle east. The streets, the gang activity were a nuisance to this honorable young man. He was a man of "special talents" learned through combat. The local gangs, thugs brought about him unleashing his abilities on them. Tony Kebbell's very thorough movements when in a tactical situation were astounding. Having a professional background in Tactical Operations myself, I truly appreciated how he carried out his moves and handling of an AR / M-4 type weapon. Here was a man that wanted peace and tried to help others, only to be pulled back into using these methods learned. Sad but sometimes a reality. Excellent movie overall.
