It's essentially constructed from crime-film cliches, that could claim a pension and, worst of all, it's way too long.
It wants to be a commentary on the fine line between legal and illegal ways of making a living and ends up being a budget fantasia about both. It doesn't quite succeed, but it's a film that's impossible to hate.
Writer-director Reg Traviss gives the shoot-outs plenty of welly, but the dialogue is mostly dire and the action sometimes grinds to a halt for an earnest oration on the politics of graffiti art or postcode gang violence.
Only at the end does Anti-Social get going with a genuinely tense finale. Or perhaps I was just glad that everyone had stopped talking.
Lairy geezer action sits awkwardly alongside dreary discussions of the politics of street art in writer/director Reg Traviss's uninspiring crime caper.
The film displays remarkable energy and fun, although the London gangster milieu and its "blud'n'bruv" slang is overused.
Traviss is clearly searching for cockney cool and "lots of layers, like life" but can't find either in the one-note flimsiness of the plastic plot that's worsened by weak ensemble acting.
A painful slog through geezer-thriller terrain.
