Think Saw, with London Underground Flavor
31 October 2015 | by Jazzy31133See all my reviews

One of the sub genres I really enjoy as a change of pace from US films are British street gangster films. Some are classics, some are OK to kill two hours and some make you feel like you wasted your time. I like Vincent Regan, but unfortunately this movie has to be a pass. Watching movies of this quality always makes me wonder why an established actor would ever agree to partake in the film. Even if he was hard up for money, you can tell the movie does not have a large budget, so I just never understand their motivations for starring in the film. Maybe movies are really fun to be a part of, regardless on the final quality.

The movie format is very similar to Saw. People contained in a small area and the movie flashes back and forth to explain how they got there. The acting was not so bad as to detract from the film, but the story was just so stale you never got hooked. A hackneyed story, bland dialogue, very little violence and no real twists - I just never understand how movies like this get made. If you are going to go to the trouble of making a movie, at least focus on one aspect to make the effort worth it. Make the fight scenes gritty or create great characters or have a great story.

Unfortunately, this movie did do a single thing well. If you want to kill time before bed and want something on the TV while flipping through a magazine, then this movie fits the bill. Otherwise pass on this one and check out another British gangster film.
