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 »
A decent enough film along the same lines as Die Hard. I enjoyed it but didn't realise it was a comedy until it showed West Ham in a European Cup Semi Final. That was so funny, even playing a made up Russian team they struggled but the words European, Semi Final and West Ham haven't gone together for a generation or two.
Forgetting tribal rivalries it was a film that followed the typical genre formula but nevertheless was a good watch.
