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 »
My old man wrote me a letter from prison once. It said if you don't want to end up in here, stay away from crime, women and drugs. Trouble is, that don't leave you much else to do, does it?

If you think Scarface in Spain but with cockneys you're half way there! From the beginning its clear that this is a first rate British film. If your not hooked from the frantic opening then the 80s music will definitely get your attention! The film tells the story of Frankie, a Londoner with no prospects. After he kills his mothers abusive boyfriend he flees to Spain to lie low and so begins his new life. There he is taken in by Charlie, a club owner and local gangster. Frankies now living the high life, but with power comes greed and danger, and you could so easily lose it all...
There really is nothing to fault about this film. I was hooked from start to finish.
