Storyline

Mob Boss is used to getting whatever he wants; he runs Southend, gets all the best women including the gorgeous, sought after Porsche The Sherbet Lemon and has one million pounds in dirty cash stashed in a briefcase at his home. However, nothing in this world comes without a price, and this weekend his boss and top-dog London Mobster, Jimmy The Gent is coming to collect the money which belongs to him. Meanwhile, reluctant ex-con Johnny The Glacier Mint is forced into pulling off a heist to get his hands on the cash himself. What none of them realize is that seven other dangerous criminals also have plans to get their hands on Jimmy's money and will do whatever it takes to get rich. Written by Memnok

Trivia

"Crikey Villains" was the working title of the film which, during post production, was officially changed to "Hard Boiled Sweets". This new title was agreed on due to the fact it not only reflected the final edit, overall style and content, but also celebrated the original influence hard-boiled fiction had in the writing process.

Great Brit Sowth Hend Gangster Flick.
12 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What Can I say.....? Great dialogue. Great Gals. Great pacing. Just.... Great all round.

Nice mix of low rent "Sin City" set down south at the Kiss Me Quick seaside town of South End.

Lot's going on to keep you amused and dialogue that is up there with Crime Noir writers like Leonard and Ellroy - it would give Tarantino a run for his money. Let me tell you that, My Son....

Check it out if you liked Lock Stock. Same pacing and humour.

Not sure why it is below most people's radar on IMDb.

But I loved it.
