Average action yarn
23 April 2002 | by rob-236See all my reviews

For the first 40 minutes this film was great, I was fully interested in the story of 2 hoodlums who, after being given only a day to pay off their loan shark - decide to blackmail (what they think to be) a very well off british business man.

Then as it goes on it turns a little ridiculous loses credibility and interest, although it was still watchable, if not gripping. Worth a watch if its on TV and you want to kill 90 mins.
