Prior to an official viewing by the UK's rating board, the BBFC, the filmmakers submitted a rough cut of the film to them. They informed the company that the film would likely receive an '18' certificate for two moments of sadistic violence, showing a man being stabbed in the groin and another's head forced into a deep fat fryer. The film was formally classified '15' after reductions were made to these scenes. See more »

Bautista is on the ball in this football themed heist
A British-American action thriller; A big, fun, brash, muscular, noisy action flick with a "Die Hard" feel. Bautista is more than comfortable, and capable, playing the big uncle to take on the terrorists should they strike. The film is full of clichés and it has a predictable storyline but it is executed handsomely. Tension doesn't run very high because the fight scenes feel too neatly choreographed, but its sentimental moments work quite well. The villains surprise with their audacious plot and their unrelenting menace and so the clock runs down quite enjoyably.
