Storyline

A wealthy, successful, East Anglian tulip grower, Dad Savage is also something of a godfather in the local criminal fraternity, but doesn't trust banks to take care of his money. On recommendation from his son, Sav, Dad hires two of Sav's unemployed school friends, Bob and Vic, to help with the business and the crime. After some careless talk from Harold, just known as "H", about Dad's pension fund, Vic and Bob decide to steal the money from Dad if they can find it. The plans to liberate the money go awry and Sav is killed requiring Bob to call upon his sister Chris to rescue them. Dad intercepts their escape and forces a showdown to try to determine exactly the events of the night in order to identify his son's killer. Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

Bizarre Due To Captain Picard
31 August 2004 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

To be honest I would have instantly dismissed DAD SAVAGE as " A British Tarantino wannabe that starts with a pre title sequence followed by a soundtrack by The Jam similar to the opening of RESERVOIR DOGS followed by a not very interesting story that cuts back and forth like PULP FICTION "

But I`ll modify my opinion by stating " It`s also very bizarre due to the casting that makes it rather more watchable "

That casting choice is Patrick Stewart as the title character . Who`s Patrick Stewart ? you ask . He`s only the captain of the USS Enterprise from a little known show called STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION . Unlike William Shatner Stewart can act but after being cast in ST:TNG no one will ever think of him than anything else than Jean Luc Picard . A shame perhaps but I had to admit there`s a great novelty value to DAD SAVAGE walking around like the cowboy from The Village People , speaking in a ridiculous accent , spouting the F word frequently and getting nasty with a shotgun . If they`d given the part to an unknown actor I wouldn`t thought much of this movie but it contains a watchability level and novelty value due to Stewart`s bizarre performance
