Watch It Now
Though an enthusiastic cast and a somewhat tacked-on feminist twist reduce the sour aftertaste, the tone isn't aggressive or witty enough to distinguish this from umpteen other Guy Ritchie knockoffs.
This is the kind of film that thinks it's feminist because the girls hit back...
The packaging is attractive, but the contents are less than satisfying, thanks to some dodgy performances, a surfeit of unlikeable characters and a script that's both lazy and over familiar.
A miserable mess of gangland cliches and narrative tangle that deserves to be dropped off the end of Southend pier, preferably attached to an anvil.
The leaden plot - involving a monochrome gang of hard nuts and their molls doing each other in for a briefcase of cash - leaves us with nothing under the wrapper.
