Doesn't do enough with what it has
9 March 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

In the core of this film is a man seeking to do more than he has to date, to put things behind him and move on. It is an engaging idea, engaging character, and in the one moment that it really does anything with this, you can see what attracted Robby Gee to the role. Outside of this one moment though, the film is mostly a mix of straightforward cliché, and tense standoff. Neither of these two aspects make the film into its own beast that is worth watching, even if it does have the accent and feel of its London setting.

Gee leads the cast well, and brings more to the film than is on paper, but the script doesn't help him enough. Instead it focuses on the mechanics of the scene and leaves him to do the work. He does okay but I wanted more at the core - more conflict of the man who is confronted by a world he is both trying to leave, and was part of creating. It is well made, and the location is well used, but it is too simple in its writing and doesn't play to the strength in character or actor that it has.
