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

VERY Old bullsh*t!

I'm giving it 5 from 10 simply because it's from my old life and it's good to see some representation(wow, apparently that's a proper word. Plot circuit in a courier office in east London my ARSE. The main "character" and his 'colleagues' display an unbelievable level of ineptitude and do not convey any "plot" courier circuit in London, England. I am okay with some scope for messing about (dramatic license,etc). But, the main character would not be allowed near any real 'plot' circuit that has EVER existed in an east,west,north or south London office(unless the owner liked magic mushrooms more than money which is highly unlikely).It's is just sh*t that actually sort of but didn't really happen 20 years ago and it doesn't qualify as a "Movie" or work on any level. Good effort but must try harder. What about what the REAL characters that work the courier circuit, shame you don't know who they are or how their lives outweigh this tosh.
