Trivia

Sean Doherty was originally meant to have a much larger role in the films original script, however... Jonny & Morgan soon found out Sean was moving to Abu Dhabi and had to rewrite some of the script. However, this also introduced Toby Haycock to the cast so the moral is you win some you loose some. See more »

Honestly... Not bad
31 January 2021 | by KenCfSee all my reviews

I noticed a fair few low ratings on here... I did my research and it is clear that this is a student film that had issues in production due to the coronavirus. So I watched with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised, the story is cohesive and fluent... Theres an odd side-plot with the guy with braces that doesn't make muuuch sense but I think it kinda wraps up well at the end? The music was great, the cinematorgraphy and fight choreography was great too... It isn't perfect but I do hope that the bad reviews don't make this these guys last film. I look forward to watching the next.
