Ducking and diving with aplomb
8 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the opening episode, satisfyingly convoluted, with a tough-guy Lawyer cum PI, government conspiracies, an unresolved murder from the past, an impossibly beautiful mysterious solicitor, an incident in Paris, etc. Our hero Harry Vern is exactly the kind of role that Philip Glenister excels in, with his gung-ho physicality, just about stopping short of boorishness. He is a throwback to the PI's of the film noir era, who turn out to be smarter than your average bear and whose antennae lights up when a juicy fee is dangled in front of their eyes by a sexy broad. Harry seems to know all the right people from the wrong side of the tracks, having been a getaway driver in his youth. It was during one such "mission" that his brother Mark was killed and the promise that the identity of his killer will be revealed, is what Harry finds particularly irresistible. A brewing government scandal does not involve Harry yet and attempts at this juncture, to join those dots together are futile. I suspect that you need to be a Glenister fan to really get the most out of this and fortunately, I am one of those. Like Jason Statham, you always know exactly what you will get from him.
