Waste of time! 1/10
4 April 2015 | by leonblackwoodSee all my reviews

Review: This film was awful. After getting over how cheap the movie looked, and the terrible soundtrack, I was hoping that the storyline was going to be half interesting but that was a disappointment as well. As usual, Vinnie Jones is playing the thug who wants to revenge the murder of his son so he asks a lawyer to try his best to release the accused murderer so he can take his own revenge. With the help of the accused sister, they find out that her brother actually didn't kill Vinnie s son and that he was protecting his lover, who was Vinnies son's girlfriend, so they plot to take down Vinnie and his crooked bunch. They also get the help from Luke Goss (from Bros) whose an private investigator with a drinking habit but he isn't really in the film that much. Anyway, the acting was really bad, especially from the leading actor, played by Timothy Woodward Jr., who also directed the movie. The storyline was straight forward but the director made a mess of it. At the end of the day, it's just another low budget movie from Trejo and Jones which should have gone straight to VHS except for DVD. Rubbish!

Round-Up: I would love to know whose funding these awful movies because they must have money to burn. I wasn't expecting that much from the film because of the cast and the fact that the advert looked cheap but I thought that I would give it a go, which was a bad mistake. Trejo is waving his machete around like a mad man, as usual and Vinnie Jones is playing the usual cockney hard man, which we have seen many times before. Anyway, the movie was a total waste of time and money and I really can't find anything positive to say about this cheap attempt at a gangster movie.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their cheap thriller/drama movies about a lawyer who has to release a prisoner so a gangster can revenge his brothers death. 1/10
