One of the better final scenes I have watched
15 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is plenty of blood sweat and tears in this movie, but what I was impressed mostly was the ending. You know how some movies have it all then at the end its like what the heck just happened here? Are you serious? Well not in this movie. One of the better final scenes I have watched in recent memory. The film revolves around Andy and his expecting wife Stacey and Stacey's brother one of Andy's mates. Andy receives a bad injury during some hooligan antics and doctors tell him any career in sports is gone. Andy gets involved with dubious characters and his role with them starts to spiral out of control. Good acting, worthy film.
