Quotes

Bryant: What you doing here? I said what the fuck you doing here? Why've you come here? Because you've been abandoned by the powers that be, and there's nowhere else to turn. Jump on a bus with a rucksack full of explosives, Government ought to dish you out a free car these days but keep your head down, be a good citizen, and walk without a limp, and you get zip. You count for nothing, and that's why you're all here, and your cries fall on deaf ears, but if you want to spend the rest of your lives ...

7/10 because of the concept - go see Boondock Saints
16 July 2007 | by Juleskid27See all my reviews

It really was a disappointment. Slow start and the last 20 minutes picks up. But I had to give it a 7/10 because of the concept. "Boondock Saints" was better.

=> maybe see it! Better to rent.

Plot: The law & govt in London lets down several average citizens in terrible crimes committed against them and their families. Corrupt officials are in league with the govt who allow criminals to get off. Soluion = vigilante group forms to right the wrongs.

Lot of reasonably well known actors in here but it has a B quality movie flavor. Maybe you could say more of live or real budget production. It moves a long a bit slowly, but despite all of this I really have to draw attention to..

+ves: - it almost follows a pseudo real life pace not a Hollywood blockbuster - the incidents that occur are believable. It could happen in South London. - bully's & punks with top people in collusion with police - corrupts govt and police - a few wrong people pushed too far and of course the social path who is drawn to the group - and a predictable or realistic ending.. Don't worry no spoilers.

-> The longer I consider it the more the movie has drawn me in, like a car crash and it deserves it's 7/10
