Storyline

The Baseline is the centre of the East London grime club scene and the queue regularly stretches around the block. Danny works on the door - breaking up fights and managing drunk kids. However, when he rescues Terry, the club owner and local gang leader, from a hitman, Danny is suddenly plunged deep into an underworld he had tried so hard to avoid. Danny is promoted to manager, but only on the condition that he turns a blind eye to the shady goings on both on and off the dance-floor. Danny and his girlfriend Jessica dream of setting up their own club, but Danny is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice when he has to choose between loyalty, morality and his own dreams of escape. Written by Miranda Howard-Williams

Gritty
1 August 2010 | by ggeo-806-15343See all my reviews

Not your usual lovable cockney geezer gangster film, this is far more realistic and gritty.

Great performances by Jamie Foreman, Dexter Fletcher, Gordon Alexander, with Gary Stretch, tattooed and minus teeth, and Gemma Atkinson in a fleece! Go figure.

Story just about hangs together and should keep even those with the attention span of a goldfish interested till the end.

BlueRay picture is lush but there are not enough extras which means marks lost out of 10.

Makes a change from the normal wide boy gangster films out there.
