Danny - a lonely factory worker, intimidated by life - is battered and humiliated in front of his kids in a random act of violence. His already bleak existence sinks further into the abyss. On the verge of total breakdown he decides to fight back. He meets a group of night-club doormen who take him in and give him the confidence to stand his ground. As he is drawn deeper into their world he becomes embroiled with the local gangland boss, setting in motion a chain of events with shockingly brutal consequences. Written by Formosa Films

Importance of Friendship
16 January 2014 | by BaghdaddySee all my reviews

Great British Drama, which depicts the life of a man who lives in constant fear until he meets a group of friends who change that. After meeting outside the gym, the main guy offers him a job as a bouncer, and the main protagonist begins to train hard in order to fit in with his newly found friends.

Nice meaning as a film and famous phrases such as quotations from Sun Tzu's 'Art of War'. Shows the impact and importance of friends on a person's life.

Would have been rated much higher if the final fight scene involving the two friends seeking revenge was choreographed and shown, as that would have been a thoroughly entertaining climax.
