Twenty years later, new faces are at the forefront of gangland Britain, but with the notorious killer never caught, there are those who haven't forgotten and won't rest until justice is served. The epic revenge spree that would shake the local crime families and police force to their core. Their names will never be known, but their actions shocked a nation. Written by
Having seen all of the previous "Essex Boys" related films, I watched this with a degree of trepidation. Surely there wasn't going to be yet more previously untold material to surface here? Thankfully this is a fictional spin on the infamous story of the Rettendon murders. It packs a punch in parts and contains some humorous moments along the way. Although the acting leaves a lot to be desired in parts it is still worth watching as it contains a few unexpected twists throughout. The four new breed Essex Boys reminded me of the yuppie drug dealers in "Lock Stock....". They are certainly not your typical drug dealers / gangland characters who would instill fear in anyone coming across them as is normally the case in these sorts of films. I found that the film passed quickly and kept my attention throughout. Although it is not the grittiest of films I would still say give it a watch to all those who like British gangland films.
