John T. Woods,
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
This really is a very worthwhile movie, good story line and quite believable.
I don't understand earlier comments about the budget for this film and how it was spent, I have seen some real shockers for the same budget (Last Passenger for one, now that was a painful movie to watch with not an original concept anywhere).
The characters are quickly developed and have reasonable depth.
The script was nicely put together and not over-done.
Dark and dreary was well portrayed as were the emotions of the situation.
I would recommend this movie, an interesting watch.
