Gritty!!! A Ticking Time Bomb!!!
2 February 2019 | by bcarruthers-76500See all my reviews

GBH aka Riot (2012) Directed by Simon Phillips. GBH aka Riot is the tale of Damien crossing the line between being a London football hooligan to becoming a member of her majesty's Metropolitan Police force on the edge between both sides of the fight. Nick Nevern plays the part well as things around him spiral out of control. You can feel the intensity of it all as the movie progresses.

Kelly Shirley, ( Carly Wicks in Eastenders) who plays his rookie cop love interest, fits the bill along with Nick to make the movie believable. Damien tells her that he was in and out of care all of his life because of anger management issues. A police officer told him "he'd got so much rage in his eyes and should use it to get back at the life he hates so much." That's why he became a policeman. That scene in this movie epitomises what this movie all about and watching it, which starts off a bit slowly, is like looking like a time bomb and you, the viewer are just waiting for it to explode in your face.
