Don't be put off by the staggeringly low score - it isn't that bad.
31 October 2012 | by perkypopsSee all my reviews

Although this film has a very theatrical feel and could, perhaps, be better performed on a stage, it has a script full of very black humour and some very strong language. At times the script mocks itself as four people go through a tangled web of deception and counter deception. It is a film for which you need to have an open mind right from the "go" or otherwise you'll miss its razor sharp patches of dialogue delivered by a cracking cast (especially Pertwee).

The action is largely confined to an appropriately dark, derelict and isolated warehouse and is very script driven. There is much violence but it is, thankfully, never overdone. It doesn't need to be for the faces of the actors tell us all we need to know, and that is why I cannot believe the low score this film has accumulated. I just think cinema audiences have never much liked stagy films as many directors have found to their cost no matter how good the material has been.

Although much of the writing is first class there are some patchy moments and it is arguable that one or two scenes didn't quite add what they were supposed to give to the drama. Put another way they were wasted because of a lack of sharpness.

But this is much better than three or four out of ten, and is certainly much better than a whole series of some crime capers.
