Towards the end of the film, Ronni is seen to be wearing a camouflage shirt. This shirt was part of a uniform issued in the British Army known as Soldier 95. As the name suggests this uniform was issued in the mid 1990s and so would not have been available in the early 80s. See more »

Before i saw this film at the pictures i decided to check out what everyone else thinks of it first - i was disappointed with their reactions but went to see the movie anyway. I pleasantly surprised. This film doesn't claim to the blockbuster of the year nor does it contain the sparkle and polish of snatch and lock stock. What it does do however is provide an amusing and gripping view of the rise and fall of an 80s wannabe gangster. To anyone outside of the UK this film may seem abit alien, but there are enough twists, turns and cheeky slang to keep you amused throughout. Just watch it don't take it too seriously and make up your own mind.
