A British thriller about a cop (McAvoy) seeking revenge of the criminal who shot him (Strong) who has returned from hiding to help his son after a heist gone wrong.
The plot is quite deep and very clever with a few twists, there is plenty of good action scenes which keep you gripped, shoot-outs, and just good drama in general. The film keeps you guessing as to what the next twist is going to be and is left open for you to decide. James McAvoy and Mark Strong were excellent in the lead roles.
I feel this film has been unfairly criticised, it turned out much better than I expected. Give this one a chance, you won't regret it.
