Michael Medwin, later to feature in Shoestring some thirty years later, plays a young thug, rather in the mould of Pinkie from Brighton Rock. He has the meatiest role in this efficient, if not particularly tense, thriller. Jane Arden, soaked in sass, plays his moll, and brings off a spirited performance. There is even a slight suggestion that the pair spent the night together, rather risqué for its time.
Sid James features in his first film looking, as ever, craggy and plays the part of a cowardly cafe owner.
Micheal Atkinson plays Danny, a rather colourless youth, who we are meant to cheer on but never was justice in its human form so dull though by the end of the film he has found a suitable personality.
All in all it passes the time in a not unpleasant way.
