Storyline

A drug-fuelled night of mayhem and ineptitude in East London! Hackney's Finest is a riotous darkly-comic thriller that pits a motley bunch of hopeless drug dealers against a group of corrupt policemen, Russian thugs and Welsh-Jamaican arms dealers. Set in the East London borough of Hackney, this is an irreverent tale of greed, corruption and the fight for survival, told with a wink and a knowing smile. Sirus likes to make a little extra cash on the side, and not remotely legally. Very occasionally he passes a small 'package' from his London supplier, Asif, to some small-time Welsh-Jamaican gangsters in the valleys. Tonight the latest of such deals is set to happen in Sirus's home, much to the annoyance of his girlfriend, Amanda. This time, however, things are about to go seriously wrong. When the Welsh contingent arrives, they are horrified to discover that Asif has been interrogated by the police, and coerced into going through with the deal, under surveillance. Worse still, Asif is ... Written by The Hackney's Finest team

A film which shocks and has some cracking one liners!
16 April 2015 | by pawsinhandSee all my reviews

It is really great to see a British independent movie, we get so few British films these days and this one has some gloss. Although I heard this was quite a low budget film, at no time does it give the impression there was a budget. The film is slick and glossy, some really great stunts and was very polished. I loved the way the characters were introduced at the beginning of the film, really nice directing. This is not your run of the mill action movie. Parts of this film are shocking reminding me of how I felt when I first watched Train Spotting. There are some really graphic images but presented in a comedic way. It shouldn't have worked but it did, I found myself laughing and then felt guilty. The cast has been well selected for the characters they play. Great characterisation! I personally loved the Russian gangsters. Evil as they are I couldn't help laughing and even liking the leader of the Russian gang. The Welsh "Yardies" are very entertaining and added humour to the film but equally they looked the part. The story line has a good pace and some cracking one liners. Some great location shooting giving this film a really gritty and realistic edge. Might need to provide ear muffs for the over 50's (language a bit ripe for me but to be fair the language was used in a humorous way so , after the initial shock I accepted it and felt it added to the atmosphere. Would make a great film to watch in a group over pizza and some beers! Would be good to see a sequel to this.
