This film was very well made. Nick Love using the same style of Direction as in his other work, most notably the Football Factory, managed to keep me entertained throughout! The film set in the Thatcher Era and uses a delicate balance of Humour, Violence and a wicked soundtrack to keep the viewer entertained. However, i feel the Script and Screenplay died out towards the End. The film starts very well and flows nicely, but towards the end of the film the purpose dies out and you find yourself saying 'what next'. The ending wasn't well written and leaves a lot to be answered in the plot, but up until the last 20 minutes this film is very well made! If you've seen Football factory then you know what sort of Film to expect and what sort of performances Danny dyer and Tammer Hassan will put in. I would recommend it as it was thoroughly entertaining but don't expect any Scorsese gangster masterpiece!
