Cardboard Gangsters follows the story of a group of young lads in Darndale, led by Jay Connolly (John Connors), who sell drugs to make a living. They set out in a bid to gain more money and power and enter the big leagues of the drug trade. Things begin to unravel quickly as not everyone in Darndale is willing to let these Cardboard Gangsters achieve the notoriety they crave without a fight.
Mind blowing realism , tense , powerful, amazing performances , just brilliant .
Just watched Mark O'Connor and John Connors masterpiece Cardboard Gangsters . It was excellent. John Connors is an truly fantastic actor , and holds every scene with a chokehold grip that doesn't let up. The direction , camera angles, use of music, this movie is just drenched in style . Also there is a montage scene midway through the movie where Damien Dempsey's talents are used to enormous effect , with the use of his track " Serious " . A perfect powerful fit for a powerful movie . Please do yourself a massive favor and see this movie on the BIG screen , it is tense , gritty and absolutely brilliant . I personally cannot wait to see what John Connors and Mark O Connor have to offer next , either as a team , or on their own. Either way it is going to be Gold , best of luck to them both and they deserve every success . Thanks for taking the time to read this , and please check this movie out , it's f**king deadly .
