Charlie Stadler is no Guy Richie, but this film is not a flop
11 December 2012 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Dead Fish is one of the films the Brits are famous for where a small event triggers a sequence of violent and fatal events. Such films contain plenty of mixing ups, peculiar characters, betrayals, and desire for money both by "good" (petty scamps, debtors, idlers) and "evil" (killers, mobsters, robbers) characters. And those are played by good or great actors: here the most outstanding are Gary Oldman, Robert Carlyle and Karel Roden whose performance does smoothen several shortcomings or immoderate scenes in the plot. As for the latter, the first half is stronger and more interesting, the remaining has lingerings and ends with trivial culmination. Nevertheless, it is pleasant to watch (especially due to the actors mentioned above) plus several scenes are really witty and amusing. 7 points for sure from me!
