Above average thriller
7 August 2009 | by kolinfergusonSee all my reviews

I have to admit that I had a vested interest in seeing this film as I've co-produced and co-created a pilot ironically in Glasgow called The Crews. Which is being punted as The Scottish Sopranos.

So when this film came along naturally we were pretty despondent as it could be construed that we are jumping on a bandwagon when in fact I'd never heard of the film until it's release on DVD. Then the PR blurb surrounding it called it the Liverpudlian Sopranos. LOL.

What made it worse for us is the film is actually very good.

Standouts include the ever excellent Stephen Graham and Scot Williams as the lead Ged.

If I had a criticism of it; ironically enough is it plays like a pilot episode of a TV show itself as you expect a follow up.
