A lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn't get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.
Set after the 2012 London Olympics, the film follows Liam (Sam Claflin), an ex-con trying to win back the love and trust of his family. He has lost everything at the hands of a local crime syndicate run by Clifford Cullen (Spall), who has high-level connections in politics, finance and the police force. Liam's drive for redemption sees him caught up in a web of conspiracy, crime, and corruption.
An 18 gangster film with Timothy Spall and Hugh Bonneville had to be worth a watch and it turned out better than I expected.
The story had plenty of twists and turns, and you never really knew where it was going. The action scenes were good and the acting very good. The film was obviously low budget but that isn't always a bad thing as in this case.
The plot did have some holes and lacked a bit of believabllity at times but overall it was well worth a watch.
