Fine drug movie, Richard Coyle good
31 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Richard Coyle is a drug dealer on the make in London. He and his mates do good business with different schemes. One day, an old prison mate comes to him to do a big buy. He takes on the risk by borrowing from a scary supplier. That's when things start to go wrong. Nothing goes his way.

The style is the perfunctory hip drug story with bright colors and pounding music. There's nothing new here, but nothing wrong with it either.

It's all about Richard Coyle. He's a compelling actor. He commands the screen.

The major problem is that he's the most trusting drug dealer I've ever seen on film. Time after time he takes minimal precautions. It just made him more incompetent than Richard could portray.
