  • Three good actors get hijacked by a talky, pointless script.

  • The film, in the end, looks very much like an adaptation of one of those preachy plays that tries too hard to tell it like it is among the underclass.

    August 24, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • In Gary Love's determinedly gritty Brit-crim movie, three good actors chase around a script that keeps promising more than it delivers.

    August 24, 2007 | Full Review…
  • What justified filming Dominic Leyton's play Collision is hard to see, but the decisions taken in opening it out are what truly wreck Gary Love's misbegotten attempt to do so.

    August 24, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Dominic Leyton's script from his play starts as a flicker of fancy words and ends as a verbose fireball consuming all reality.

    August 24, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Mackintosh's character is a bit sketchy, and his occasional, dramatic interventions were not really believable.

    This screen adaptation of co-screenwriter Dominic Leyton's stage production Collision was a wonderful choice for Gary Love who makes his feature debut with Tarantino feel Sugarhouse. It's time to switch from British historical fakes to a real time movies... and to enjoy!

    british crime flick, seen many times before but stick with it, theres some good moments to be had, 2 guys who are totally oposit and from diferent worlds need to stick together after a dealing between them goes wrong and local gangs are on there back, gritty london setting adds to story, with some nice story developments along the way, gollum him self andy serkis, does a nice job as a local nutjob on there trail

    urban gollum has stopped chasing hobbits and begins a quiet life of going around beating people up and handling a machete quite well for his precious gun! he lost the ring. lots of drama and violence with adaquate realism. the acting was strong from serkis, walters and mackintosh! small budget, good simple story! no frills, but definietly thrills! interesting debut from gary love. GREAT scene in the lift when serkis is going mental, slicing anywhere, everywhere and the lift doors open to reveal grandma looking rather startled! haha...

    Slow paced, but superbly acted, starring some of Britain?s most underrated Actors. The acting was so good, that parts had no dialogue at all and yet the storyline continued along its way. A gritty and realistic approach, which really added to the scenes of violence etc. An insightful look into a world few people will ever experience and some wish they didn?t.
