The Film ECSTASY
6 April 2012 | by korannorthSee all my reviews

I have seen various clips of the film Ecstasy and a friend of mine has been to see it, we both agreed,it has humour and a realistic story line to the gangster and drug world which was around in the 80's and is at this present time. I would recommend viewing for the thrilling aspect and also for the up and coming Actor's and their real life view at putting across the very true and somewhat exciting world we live in and feel excites us.

From someone who was friends with a person in that world at the time and he was sentenced to 32 years, so very true to life and the Actors/ Actresses were very life like in there roles, an excellent story line.

WELL WORTH SEEING.
