Let down by a bad script ,bad acting and a terrible director
I managed to watch about 30 minutes of this before I decided to switch it off.
The acting is so bad and the script is worse.
Why on earth did Jez Butterworth think that every other word that came out of Londoners mouths in the 1950s began with an F?
The leading actor such as Ian Hart overplays the hard man role and I felt sorry for him because he knew that the script is poor and he was miscast as "Mickey."
The worst of all though is Ewen Bremner who played "Skinny"
his performance is so bad, it's enough to curl your toes.
I am surprised that Ricky Tomlinson took part in this because I thought he was experienced enough to know the difference between a good and bad script.
Nevertheless, his perfomance as "Ezra" is more convincing because he has that natural ability to lead.
Overall, this movie is what I would describe as a "toe curling classic"
it has all the elements that make a bad movie worse.
A bad script full of swear words and cringe worthy lines.
The director should have learned how to write a good script before going ahead with this movie.
