When Jack, a small time criminal, returns to London after three years in exile he immediately goes in search of his next job. On discovering that his old connections have gone cold he sets about making his own luck and decides to target rich business people in the city. This is where he meets Laura who introduces him to the ideal mark - a rich old gangster called Duke. Using inside knowledge from his new partner Laura, Jack executes the heist - but something goes wrong and the job is a failure. But Jack is not one to miss an opportunity for serious money. So when a campaign of brutality and intimidation comes knocking on Jack's door he decides to confront Duke and meet him head on. The violence escalates as Laura is caught in the cross fire and Jack is dragged out to a quarry and left for dead. He must fight for his life against an enemy who is far more powerful and devious than he could ever have imagined, sending him on a collision course with a catastrophic secret.

Highly stylish . . .
24 August 2017 | by whatithinkisSee all my reviews

with music and pacing to match.

Elegant photography makes the ugly pleasurable.

The voice over caresses time-hopping juxtapositions and Sam Donnelly does everything but grief well.

My issue is with the pacing. Almost too slow to justify the excruciating wait for an ending that is just barely worth it.
