Alas poor Danny, I knew him well
4 March 2015 | by bowmanblueSee all my reviews

Danny Dyer is an enigma. A man not particularly... well, anything at all, and yet he still has a loyal fan base and, even more surprisingly than that, a career.

The only thing weirder, is why I keep watching his films. The Business and Severence were excellent (and I will admit to also like Doghouse), plus he did one about football hooliganism which was just about okay, but pretty much everything else he's done is terrible.

If you read the blurb it says, and I quote: "NERVE-SHREDDING TERROR... DANNY DYER AS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE Prepare yourself for one of the most terrifying films of the year. An all-action, adrenaline-fueled bloodbath" I have to wonder why no one's reported the film-makers for false advertising. Perhaps because no one has actually bothered to watch the films? Dyer plays an escaped nut-job who kidnaps a middle class mum and drives her around London while he flips from being nice then nasty to her. Everywhere they stop she tries to escape and fails. Will she get away in the end? I defy many people to actually care.

I like horror and thrillers and there are some real low budget gems out there (try 'Mum and Dad'), but this is not one of them. Repetitive, badly-written and not particularly well acted either.
