Storyline

Amongst the Desperation and fear growing in a crime ridden sink estate in northern England, one man becomes involved into saving what little decency and community life exists. It's the winter of 1974 power cuts and coal strikes cripple the country, which is reduced to a 3 day working week alongside Police 'centralisation'. Everything it seems is falling apart along with the community's only hope and protector, the nearly retired Detective Sergeant Barry Harrigan. Written by Vince Woods

It's like 'Life on Mars' didn't happen
26 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would have to agree with Jessica on this one. The "9" and "10" star reviews are clearly being written by the cast and crew in a desperate attempt to get you to watch this risible film. Don't be fooled. It's terrible. I mean it's properly terrible. The writing is cliché ridden, episodic and incoherent. The directing is inept. My blind pensioner aunt Lillian could have staged better fight scenes The ugly cinematography does, at least, lend a certain atmosphere of oppressive gloom to the proceedings, but since everything else is so shoddily directed, one must conclude that this is purely accidental. The one saving grace perhaps is the acting from SOME of the cast. Stephen Tompkinson is solid as ever despite having to deliver dialogue which wouldn't make the cut in a bad episode of The Bill. but the characters are so poorly developed the actors face a losing battle from the off. We don't understand anything about them except on a very superficial level. In short. If you want to see a great Northern British crime thriller, rent Get Carter. If you want something that makes you think you could have made a better film drunk, watch this.
