Danny why did u do this flick,,,why????
20 February 2010 | by iwaheedSee all my reviews

i am a huge fan of Danny Dyer and try not to miss his movies.,,He is one good actor and really funny at times.... i was waiting for this flick for ages like i did for Rock n rolla...but the results were totally different...unlike rock n Rolla this flick was a big disaster... 50cents looked more like a Doctor than a gangster and Tammer Hassan wasted his money and skills in this film...Danny...you are a good actor..please choose the flick while you are not stoned...we love you mate... Thet could've made a nice movie out of this story line but they failed....Rio Ferdinand you were a good defender but not a really good producer...if you have so much of money to waste....don't waste on producing such movies...help the poors and you will be remembered...ash Cole was also another soccer player who contributed in the production..Ash...you are not good soccer player and not a good producer either....well..please do watch this flick for Danny sake..if you are his fan...beside that this flick is a total waste of money and time...
