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

Bonkers script, slick direction, fun.
9 April 2015 | by dixyfifiSee all my reviews

Following in the footsteps of a Great British love affair with heist and gangster movie, Hackney Finest hits the bullseye.

The grim story is seasoned by just the right amount of (dark) humour. In this regard, it definitely echoes some of Guy Richie or Tarantino's moments of brilliance.

The characters are, if not lovable, definitely charismatic. The eastern European gangsters are just as hilarious as they are scary.

Hackney Finest is not trying to revolutionise the genre: it embraces it, and definitely delivers.

Another side thing I liked, especially in regards to the current attitude of "spoiling trailers", is that Hackney's Finest trailer stays true to the spirit of film without giving away the very best bits. Refreshing
