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

Surprisingly good film
30 September 2013 | by (Newcastle upon Tyne) – See all my reviews

I don't know who Jessica Lear is, but either she was watching a different film or she has a personal grudge against someone in the crew. A gritty, believable story, well shot, well researched locations, with characters you can really feel for and understand. The authentic 70s feel of the film, right down to the cinematography, is perfect. The dark, brooding undercurrent of the film encapsulates well the desperate and depressing mood the UK, and particularly the north, was suffering in the mid-seventies, without masking the human story behind the main characters. The touches of humour, just took the hard edge off the violence, and strong visual and audible content, to make this a thoroughly enjoyable film, well worth going to see. The storyline and the characters have enough mileage left in them for a sequel or TV series to follow. Good luck to all involved, it is heartening to see a good British film without the mockney mafia involved.
