Quotes

Warren: You're very lucky, mate. See, I didn't get to say goodbye to my little brother, after you smashed his fucking head in with that bat. But I'm letting you say goodbye to her 'cos I'm a nice guy. See, I did you a little favour... good of myself - I put a little bit more petrol on the bitch, so hopefully she lash off first.
[he stands by the open door]
Warren: Fuck me, it's cold in here. Don't worry, Georgie... I'll turn the heating up
[he sparks a lighter and throws it]

Better than Dyer's Outlaw, but not as good as I'd hoped
21 November 2014 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

VENDETTA is a British vigilante movie in which an ordinary guy is pushed to the edge by the brutal murder of his parents. The film stars an older, wiser Danny Dyer as the chief character, a man who spares no expense in the way he tracks down and dispatches those responsible for the terrible crime.

At the outset, I was pleasantly surprised by VENDETTA. It bears some strong cinematography and good production values for a low budget British genre movie; director Stephen Reynolds is particularly to be commended for making this look like it stands up against the best Hollywood has to offer. And the first half hour tells an intense, dramatic story via decent editing and well thought-out scenes.

It's a pity, then, that the film can't sustain this calibre of writing, because it starts to go downhill soon afterwards. The issue is the plot, which doesn't really go anywhere as the narrative progresses. It becomes repetitive and vague, with too much time given to inconsequential characters and their actions, like Dyer's military superior and the efforts of some shady government types to track him down. All of this stuff is unnecessary and detracts from the story.

Still, the producers deserve credit for eliciting a decent performance from Dyer, and some of the supporting roles are nicely filled. Roxanne McKee continues with the potential she showed in A GAME OF THRONES, and it's always fun to see Bruce Payne even though he only appears in a cameo here. Watch out for KNIGHTMARE star Hugo Myatt in a bit part, and Vincent Regan as a military type. The violence is strong and the story gutsy, lifting this head and shoulders above the comparable likes of Nick Love's OUTLAW.
