At 1 hour 19 Minutes as the male is exiting the food establishment, just before being punched and placed into the Range Rover, a green Food Hygeine Rating sticker can be seen on the door to the cafe. These were not introduced until 2010, some 20 odd years after the events of the film are set. See more »

Terrible writing and even worse screenplay
I'm a fan of Craig Fairbrass and really liked him in London Heist, of which was way better written (by Fairbrass) than this hot mess. Amateur writer Mike Loveday assembled a convoluted screenplay that basically shows violence and cocaine marathons and bounces back and forth in the scenes and has more plot holes than a strainer. Zackary Adler's directing was OK, probably the best he could do with such a poor script. It's too bad more effort wasn't put towards the writing of at least having a seasoned writer at least proofread this mess of a script. Although the comedy and violence was still entertaining, it's still only a generous 5/10 from me, more-so for decent cinematography and awesome location sets and visuals.
