Movie Info

This biographical thriller charts the notorious rise of southern England's most famous gangsters-- Tony Tucker, Patrick Tate, and Craig Rolfe. The trio of drug suppliers and career criminals were found in 1995, blasted to death by a shot gun in a Range Rover in Essex. A stronghold of fear and violence that allowed them to maintain a large, drug fuelled empire perhaps led to their untimely deaths.

Willfully exploitative...

Worth watching, but the whole just isn't nearly as effective as some of the parts.

Based on the same true story previously told on film with skill (2000's Essex Boys) and without (2007's Rise of the Footsoldier), it's kind of difficult to understand why there's yet another movie version. Especially one as uninteresting as this.

Everything from script to performances goes through the motions, with only Vincent Regan's Mickey registering in more than one dimension.

September 9, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Though director Sacha Bennett's effort is well shot and evokes its mid-nineties setting well, its disjointed structure makes for a weak narrative, and only in the third act does it finally come together with any sort of momentum or urgency.

September 9, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Uninspired, ridiculously sweary British gangster thriller that's let down by tedious characters, a badly written script and a dull storyline that fails to provide a reason to care.
