Fresh out of prison, Pat Tate steps right back into his Essex nightclub business. Since he can't stop brooding about the man who had him put away, it's not long before he's off to Marbella to find Frank Harris and seek his revenge.
Fresh out of prison, Pat Tate (Craig Fairbrass) steps right back into his Essex nightclub business. But although the money is good, he can't stop brooding about the man who had him put away. It's not long before he's off to Marbella to find Frank Harris and seek his revenge. But Harris is long dead and the middle man Terry Fisher offers Pat the biggest drug deal of his life. All Pat needs is for his pals Tony and Craig to deliver the cash from Essex to close the deal. But Craig being Craig, turns a simple plane trip to a massive road trip with a stolen VW van and its hippie German owner in tow. All Tony wants is to make it back in time to support his best friend Nigel Benn at the boxing match of his life. But when their cash gets stolen and Pat is threatened by a local firm, Pat comes up with an even more audacious plan and to get them back to England in time for Tony to walk Nigel Benn out to one of history's greatest fights.Written by
Alright, anybody who follows brit gangster films knows the essex boys have been movie fodder in countless projects. I have seen each rotf film and first is still best.......part 2 was decent with part 3 being about the same. However, rotf 4 was such a refreshing addition to the franchise, tight and easy to follow story as well. The boys are running low on x pills and that means no punters in their clubs( people want to take x and dance!) not to mention coke dealers are moving in on their action! This leads pat (fairbrass) to engineer a bold plan to rob a british drug dealer who has transplanted to a lovely house in spain with his conniving wife. I dont want to give much away but what makes this one diff from the rest in the franchise is the emphasis on comedy more than in the previous, the banter between manookian and stone as rolfe and tucker worth the price of admission alone. DEF WORTH A RENT AT THE LEAST!!
