Audience Member Review: This is just your typical violent English movie with your usual dose of swearing, sex and violence. The acting in the movie was quite terrible for the leading actors, but the storyline wasn't too bad. I also though that the film looked pretty cheap and it just seemed to go round and round in circles. By the end of the film it just seemed like the director wanted to show how much policemen can get away with, which wasn't a smart way to portray the people who are supposed to protect public. Anyway, I wasn't that impressed with it. Round-Up: I wasn't expecting that much from this movie so I wasn't that disappointed. Some of the scenes were pretty graphic, but there wasn't any real moral to the story. For a low budget movie, it does have a bit of substance but nothing worth watching again. Budget: £1.5million Worldwide Gross: N/A I recommend this movie to people who are into there violent British movies. 2/10 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member enjoyable 3rd act and really good acting. just wish the rest was as good Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member brilliant hard hitting gritty British film at it's best...must see... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Disturbing in places Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A low-budget drama that takes a good 15 minutes to get into it's stride (the scenes seem to edited a bit randomly the story doesn't seem to be going anywhere) but once the main characters are established and start developing relationships together then the whole thing builds to a brutal but inevitable climax. By using the recent London riots as a backdrop Phillips has found a good way to highlight the anger and frustration that is still obviously evident in Britain's main city, especially in certain areas and since I am a Londoner and vividly remember the riots the film hit home hard for me. Nevern has a difficult role as Damian and to begin with I thought he was underplaying the role but he is actually doing a good job trying to control the rage that's in him. Shirley is also very good as the new recruit and a potential savour for Damian. However it is O'Neill as Shirley's dad that really delivers a great performance and his scenes, especially after his home has been invaded, are beautifully acted. After watching this film I found that it left me feeling slightly disturbed but happy that the British film industry can still produce quality material.
