I like it !
28 April 2004 | by kurtj-1See all my reviews

What a positiv surprise this was !

Another brit-film with humor, depth and action ! Ken Stott is brilliant and the younger crew is not bad either ! Paul Kaye has a smaller part but is very good ! Jack Dee's first apperance on the big screen...and not last, I am sure. He could probably been used more in this film ? Normally I am not to keen on "children plots " but this was well balanced and the kids was good, not overacting as is so common. Nick Moran is well established in brittish gansterfilms and this is another strong performance. Kate Ashfield is "foxy" and helps the overall strengths of the film. Linda Bassett as Auntie Vee is very solid.

Overall : very good !!!
