Movie Info

Actor-turned-director Gary Love makes his feature debut with this screen adaptation of co-screenwriter Dominic Leyton's acclaimed stage production Collision. Tom (Steven Mackintosh) is a middle class city boy who is currently scouring the back streets of London in search of an elusive and unnamed object. When Tom comes into contact with desperate young crack addict D (Ashley Walters), it looks as if he may have finally found what he's been looking for. Now, with time running out for Tom and D and psychotic local crime-lord Hoodwink (Andy Serkis) quickly closing in, the pair enter into a deadly game of cat and mouse that finds their mysterious goals gradually coming into focus as their hope to see another day glows ever more dim. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

Top Critic

Mackintosh's character is a bit sketchy, and his occasional, dramatic interventions were not really believable.

Although the writing's exploration of common humanity across the social divide offers occasional worthwhile moral provocation, its evident theatricality also works against any sense of urban authenticity.

Strains so hard to establish some sort of rough street cred that it ends up feeling artificial.

Aug 24, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 24, 2007 | Rating: 2/5

Directed by Gary Love, early shots promise much but it never delivers. Essentially a Play For Today, with more crack and a syrupy ending you can see coming.

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!

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.
