Storyline

Gunz (Dylan Duffus) is thrust into a world of excitement when he joins the TIC crew. The crew, led by the ruthless Hoodz (Scorcher), goes from low level weed peddling to full on armed robberies within a fortnight. Their new found infamy affords them a life of guns, drugs, and girls but they also catch the attention of the police and a rival gang. To make matters worse they have been infiltrated by an undercover police officer. Does he have "THE INTENT" to remain a criminal or abide by his oath to the force?

Don't know why the high score
31 July 2016 | by pgklSee all my reviews

I really don't know how this film got such a high score?! Normally IMDb scores reflect the quality of the film but in this case I'm not so sure. One of the other films where IMDb is way out is Chappie- a complete load of rubbish! Was really looking forward after reading reviews and watching trailer but it wasn't long before I didn't have a clue who was who and what was going on! I love gritty Brit films especially crime/gang related but this fell way short of expectations, a real let down. If you're a little bored maybe watch, but don't expect it to reflect the high rating. The acting is not great, the storyline maybe acceptable but it just doesn't seem to work.
