Cliche British Crime Film Hits A Wall.
3 February 2019 | by william-grant-1See all my reviews

Okay, so i'm not going to describe the film like some others have, that's not a review. What i can say is that this particular film is a poor mismatch of other films that seems to have been cut short. The cast is made up of actors whom have all been in other gangster type realeases who have obviously been type cast now & this is the best job offer they can get. The way the Police has been depicted is laughable ! A major crime in progress & we see one van & an unmarked car responding ? Totally ridiculous. James Cosmo, the SCOTTISH actor is laughable, he is struggling so badly with the London accent his delivery just fails, his tone & manner is totally off, this is also the case for the rival villian, just totally unbelievable. Overall the film is garbage, not gritty just cliche.
