The worst one yet
7 March 2013 | by jameslovesstephSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this movie but within a few Min's of watching I knew it was going to be weak.. Sorry to say but some of the worst acting I have ever see. I thought Pat Tate was a hard man? well, the Pat Tate in this movie does not come across as a hard man at all, just a loud mouthed all talk bad actor not the right actor for the part. To be honest non of the actors in this playing Mick, Pat, or Tucker should of played the parts not the right people for the job. If my insomnia wasn't playing up I would of turned it off within the first 10 min's it really is that bad. I would rather watch "Rise Of The Foot Soldier" (AGAIN) or "Essex Boys" (AGAIN) this movie does not come anywhere close to as good as these 2 Movies. My opinion, the only good actors in this movie where the copper and the undercover, absolute PANTS
