Storyline

Battered, bruised and under arrest, Harvey Miller (Luke Treadaway) sits in a police interview room facing interrogation. Clutching a stack of eyewitness statements, Detective Inspector West (Timothy Spall) has no doubt in Harvey's part in a foiled robbery, and his subsequent attempted murder of local businessman Steven Roper. Denying everything, Harvey agrees to tell his version of events in full. We take in his release from prison a month earlier, and the malevolent, unjust act that put him in there. We see his emotional reunion with his sibling-like best friends, and the immovable loyalty they have for one another. We see the rekindling of a lost love, a second chance for two people meant for each other. We see the ingenious planning of the ill-fated robbery, the amazing twist, the shocking outcome and the real driving force behind it - retribution. What unfolds is an exhilarating, moving and hilarious story of loyalty, jealousy, friendship, revenge and the pursuit of happiness. Written by MoliFilms

Best (British/Any) Film You Will See,This Year,Next Year and probably Ever.
2 October 2013 | by (LEICESTER ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

This film is every thing you could want: from a comedy or revenge thriller to a road or buddy flick with a good old heist movie thrown in for good measure too. 1 hour and 45ish minutes of your life well spent.

It's British movie making at it's best and the first time writer/director has done a stellar job. Top class acting from a first class line up of outstanding British talent, that most of you around the world won't have heard of (except for Timothy Spall probably.) The pace is fast and the dialogue witty with many a twist to keep you enthralled throughout.

I could babble on for hours about how much me and my better half enjoyed it and why you should watch it but just go rent it and see for yourself, then make up your own minds. I for one look forward to this directors' next piece and hope he is not a one hit wonder.
