Did have potential but gets very little right
10 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The idea while not the most original was interesting and could have been a decent movie if done right. Sadly, apart from Nick Nevern's intensely brooding lead performance, there is little that is right about The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan. The movie is not exactly amateurish to look at strictly speaking but it does have a rather drab look to it, there are scenes where it is good to have it but the scam/thriller moments were in serious need of more slickness. The soundtrack is not fitting at all and as music is dull and not memorable in the slightest. The dialogue is embarrassingly ham-fisted and while the swearing was appropriate within the type of movie it was the use of it was overkill, literally every other word. There is a little bit of violence, though surprisingly not particularly much. Considering the brutality of the language, you'd think the violence would match that, I personally was surprised at how played too safe it seemed. The very cobbled-together story handles the various themes(which it doesn't balance particularly well) with no depth to it and it all seemed rather half-hearted, not only that but for a 75 minute movie there wasn't anywhere near enough story to sustain it and to make up for it there are a lot of padded clichéd scenes. There are no characters to properly root for, they are so generic and parody-like, and apart from Nevern the acting comprises of actors who play themselves(Billy Murray), use forced delivery(Roland Manookian) or who can't do anything with their roles(pretty much everybody else). To conclude, decent potential that goes nowhere. 2/10 Bethany Cox
