Gritty, down to earth and hard hitting
24 October 2015 | by mac-33983See all my reviews

This is truly how I welcome the cinema .. A story that has real world characters who have depth and soul... and knowing that it is based on a true story adds even further to the impact.

The violence is portrayed in a meaningful manner, it is not glorified with typical Hollywood "drama", here it is cold, quick and without remorse...

This is not a film that the mainstream media can love because it portrays the kind of reality that it far too heavy to immediately digest. It is in essence a philosophical/sociological view on the darker side of society.

You can't just walk away from this film and forget it...
