What a load of rubbish
6 June 2014 | by ben_lawrence22See all my reviews

Terrible movie, complete waste of time. I really wouldn't bother even considering this film, there are so many greats and this wouldn't hit the top 1000. The plot was weak and the acting worse. It was just awful, I have nothing decent to say about this film at all. The only reason I finished it is because I was actually hoping that it may pick up at some point but that was a pipe dream and it went steadily down hill. The basic plot of this film revolves around an ex footballer who with baby on the way gets mixed up with some gangsters in order to make a living when his new career move is threatened. There are so many things in explained which I'm sure that if you ignore my review and actually watch this film you will see. I WOULD AVOID THIS FILM.
