Amazed it was financed... didn't anybody read the script?
19 April 2010 | by BazBaz001See all my reviews

This is one of those movies you really hope will be good and with a reasonable cast, should have been, i was looking forward to watching it but with a newborn son, struggled to find the time.. when i did find the time it was wasted on one of the worst films i have seen for a while (and i have seen Dear John). I thought that maybe this was one of those movies that might have had a great original script that was then bastardized by rewrites and a different directorial view, but then noticed it was written and directed by the same guy Marcus Warren, so assume he must have been happy with it, Gary Stretch who was promising in Dead Man Shoes, never seemed to go anywhere with his character who seemed to have the morals of a saint one minute and Bill Sykes the next. I have enjoyed some of the Vinnie Jones movies i have seen but always felt that he was being carried by the other cast members.. in this, he does the carrying and did what he could with the terrible dialogue, i should have known as soon as i saw idiot boy Lee Ryan in this sorry excuse of a film, maybe he is a friend of Marcus Warren who must have great friends to get this dross made in the first place!
