As interesting as watching concrete dry. C5, not C6.
19 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

From the trailer I expected this film to be gripping and intense. It was neither. Sadly Tom Hardy's abysmal Welsh accent wasn't enough to completely distract you from the mundane story. (I'm Welsh, so I feel I can fairly judge the accent)

I found the scenes in which Ivan was talking into the rear view mirror to be cringe worthy, and a cheap shortcut to give the audience an insight into the main character's past.

I think this film could have been amazing, but sadly fell short and I left the cinema less than impressed. However some credit needs to be given to Tom Hardy as his performance was good and he carried the film well.

Overall I found this film to be pointless and it put restrictions on itself from the start for absolutely no reason. There were no conclusions at the end and film ended abruptly. Thankfully I was completely disinterested and didn't waste any time wondering about the fate of the characters.
