Good solid film
25 July 2011 | by (On a distant star) – See all my reviews

I just watched this film, and it was way better then what some of the reviews on here indicated. Sure as like most films it is nothing new, no Oscars will be handed out, but it had me watching with interest from start till the end.

Sure it had some slow parts in it, but the story line was solid, acting was good, and the pile of bodies made up for the slow parts.

The British do these kind of films well, most of their cop shows are well done, and they are very good at making crime films.

Like I said no Oscar on its way, but a hell of lot better then the crap that has been coming out of Hollywood this year.

Solid 8 out of 10
