Storyline

After serving a jail term, tough Jimmy Kerrigan returns to his derelict Glasgow quarter, wanting a better, legal life for himself and his loved-ones. Not easy, as brother Terry is addicted and their ma gravely ill. Lenient parole terms leave him in charge of unorthodox Father Gabriel Flynn, who recruits him for the parish passion play, which he modernizes into an attack on crime and corruption. Drug baron Donnie McGlone, in league with the local police chief, wants everything back to normal, whatever it takes. Written by KGF Vissers

Should of stayed as Tevor and I Dislike East Enders
11 March 2008 | by ed_two_o_nineSee all my reviews

Well now this strange movie. It was listed as a comedy but I certainly found nothing to laugh at. Actually I am struggling to find anything positive to say about this film. Oh here I go. Alex Ferns is not bad in the lead role and I did not pick the ending for a change, but apart from that this has no great direction solidly two dimensional characters and is not funny enough to be a comedy or serious or dark enough to be any form of decent drama. I would really avoid ever having to watch this movie again and think it does nothing to benefit any of the working class characters it is attempting to portray. I found it hard to empathise for any of the characters and was not given enough information on the lead character Jimmy to believe his motives. Best avoided.
