wait till it hits Film 4, which won't be long.
15 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Adam Deacon winner of a Bafta last month gets his first top billing. Adam Deacon has a mile long catalogue of TV and film credits to his name. So he did well to win the Bafta Rising Star award.

What can I say about Payback Season?

Not a great film. I tried, I really did try to get into Payback Season. Luckily for me I used my Cineworld Unlimited card to watch this, or else I'd be asking for some payback. Deacon plays Jerome Davies, a successful premiership footballer whose living the so called footballers dream. Girls, money,fast cars, you name it he can buy it. But things soon turn ugly whenhis long time criminal buddy Baron comes into the picture asking Jerome for a loan. Reluctantly Jerome gives into his request and loans Baron the money. The loan turns out to be the start of Jerome's worries when Baron puts friendship aside and threatens Jerome to fund his criminal enterprise or he'll make sure he never plays football again.

Performances and script are a lot to be desired. Deacon for starters is barely convincing as the lead. I just didn't buy into his character. And David Ajala as Baron looked like he was auditioning for Idris Elba

  • The early years. I didn't take Baron the drug dealer (who runs the


streets) that seriously at all. The supporting performances are absolutely dire and are a mixture of improvisation and poor dialogue. The only saving grace is Leo Gregory who does a good job as Jerome's mate and physio Andy. Script is weak and unimaginative like it always is with these films. And nothing else really happens. Sorry, I wish I could write more, but there's nothing left to write about. This is Danny Donnelly's directorial debut and he also wrote this film. Credit to him, he's managed to get his film distributed on a limited release, so that's something.

As for giving Payback Season a recommendation. I don't recommend you see it in the cinema. Save your money and time and wait till it hits Film 4, which won't be long.

Maybe you think I'm being too harsh here? You know, UK Film Council being scrapped, young directors and actors need to be given a chance and all that. It's true and I'm in full support of all of that. But I'm still entitled to my opinion.
