Descriptive Title
23 August 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

London gangsters in West Virginia: that's what this movie is about. Malcolm McDowall has twenty-five million quid he wants to launder; Ron Perlman has oil in West Virginia he wants to get out of the ground, and the banks won't make him a loan, despite his insistence he can do it and leave the land in good shape. So they strike a deal. But McDowall has his goonish associates out of a Guy Ritchie movie, including Vinnie Jones; while Perlman has a son who is not the brightest bulb in the socket, played by Nicholas Braun; and the woman around this town are very pretty.

Sothey clash, with increasing violence throughout. And the men are thoroughly unlikeable, except for McDowall and Perlman, who want to be businesslike, and the women seem to think that it has nothing to do with them; and so a bunch of people who show neither wit nor character are fighting it out, and why should I care?

Cinematographer Jerry Osbern shoots the movie very well.
