      Nathaniel N I didn't even watch it and from the cover it looks great! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review Stephen R I could never understand whether this film was poking fun at itself or taking itself too seriously. I gets tiresome very quickly as do the characters. I do like the downfall of Charlie to a glorified bouncer. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review Audience Member Ages 17+ only; the greatest actors ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Danny Dyer at his very best. A god awful film, the premis and concept is great, but it falls down in production. Mixing BBC's Eldorado and Football Factory, with the production values of Grange Hill. Two scenes where Danny Dyer is almost convincing. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A so-so film with Danny Dyer playing.. well Danny Dyer. The 80's music and style works well, the language is very strong, but there is nothing here which standards out. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member An enjoyable film. Great great great OST. Slightly hammy acting but all the characters are fun, with am overly simple plot, there is a lot here if it had just been fleshed out. Much much better than a lot of the trash out there. Danny Dyer is very cool. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Sep 2, 2005 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List The Business is at its best when it celebrates the fashion and the music of the 80s. Love's passion for the era is clear... The plot is not always of the same standard. Rated: 3/5 Apr 26, 2019 Full Review Urban Cinefile Critics Urban Cinefile A rootin' tootin' no holds barred Brit crime thriller, The Business succeeds by sheer thuggish intent. May 26, 2008 Full Review Matt McAllister Future Movies UK Rated: 6/10 Jan 28, 2006 Full Review Joe Utichi FilmFocus Will have a hard time appealing, even, to the Ladsy audience it's unmistakably made for. Rated: 2/5 Sep 4, 2005 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon Danny Dyer tones down his usual swaggering cockney act and gives a genuinely sympathetic performance - his relationship with Tamar Hassan's Charlie is surprisingly touching.
