Clayton Murdoch (Ashley Thomas) carries a terrible darkness inside him. As a boy he was exposed, by his father(David Harewood), to murder and gang culture, With his father now in prison, Clayton struggles to overcome what he was groomed to become, in a city where every day there is a constant threat of violence and death. Clayton channels his aggression into boxing. Controlled, powerful, contained. However, when the violence starts to destroy his own family, Clayton loses control, and the darkness within him is unleashed. And now, to get the revenge against those who have taken his loved ones, he must ask the one man he fears the most for help, his father. With everything around him falling apart and the full shocking fury in him let loose, Clayton must look death in the face and find out who is the man inside.Written by
Caught this on iTunes last night, and wanted to write about it. Was searching for Peter Mullan films I hadn't yet seen (am big fan). Thought this film looked like a "yeah Brov" sort of film, but gave it a go. Glad I did, cos it was a really good film. Not amazing like Peter's own films, but he was great in it (as usual).
I did a bit of research after watching the film and I can see how it was biographical. It definitely feels very raw in places. If i had a criticism I'd say it could have done with some quieter moments, as its pretty full-on. But I don't mind that too much. the other actors are good, especially the lead guy, who I hadn't seen before. Overall, I gave it 7/10. its a lot better than most of the Brit films I've seen, and another brilliant performance from my favourite actor.
