Storyline

Focusing on the timeless themes of jealousy, murder and betrayal, 'I Against I' is set over one night and utilises different time lines to reveal a dark and unexpected conclusion to a simple mystery premise. The main protagonists, opposite in character, take a frantic journey into a desolate nocturnal world with the common aim of survival, though once completed, the plot reveals a trap from which escape may be impossible. Taking influence from films like 'Le Samurai', 'Point Break', and new Asian noir, the film is a modern homage to hard boiled cinema with its own original take. Written by Peter Slack

A generally jumbled mess
4 October 2014 | by bowmanblueSee all my reviews

I know that not every British gangster flick should be measured against Guy Ritchie's work. And, to be fait, I Against I is nothing like Ritchie's work - in other words it's pretty awful. Whereas as Ritchie can make a complex narrative with numerous characters come together and let the viewer easily make sense out of it, I Against I just seems to want to play around with the narrative structure for the sake of it Basically, it's a jumbled mess. Again, the far superior Pulp Fiction moved beginning to end and vice versa and got away with it. Some films can do that. This one can't. Scenes seem to happen in random order, making it increasingly hard for the viewer to follow what's happening.

Then there's the characters - who cares about them? They're not particularly likable and the fact that the story's told out of order makes it hard to keep track of them.

A low budget British gangster film without any major names attached to it was always going to be hard work. And indeed it was.
