Storyline

Mob Boss is used to getting whatever he wants; he runs Southend, gets all the best women including the gorgeous, sought after Porsche The Sherbet Lemon and has one million pounds in dirty cash stashed in a briefcase at his home. However, nothing in this world comes without a price, and this weekend his boss and top-dog London Mobster, Jimmy The Gent is coming to collect the money which belongs to him. Meanwhile, reluctant ex-con Johnny The Glacier Mint is forced into pulling off a heist to get his hands on the cash himself. What none of them realize is that seven other dangerous criminals also have plans to get their hands on Jimmy's money and will do whatever it takes to get rich. Written by Memnok

Trivia

"Crikey Villains" was the working title of the film which, during post production, was officially changed to "Hard Boiled Sweets". This new title was agreed on due to the fact it not only reflected the final edit, overall style and content, but also celebrated the original influence hard-boiled fiction had in the writing process.

Confident little thriller
6 November 2019 | by robertemeraldSee all my reviews

Hard Boiled Sweets rises above many other British gangland thrillers by sheer weight of the unexpected. It's filmed really well, and is well cast. Nor does it outstay it's welcome at around 80 minutes or so. It moves pretty quick, so much so, that when the surprises start to kick in, it's a very easy ride to the finish. Hard Boiled Sweets deserves to be on any recent list of competent British crime-land dramas.
