Travis's noir is entirely watchable, but it's only because of to Ahmed's captivating presence.

'The Big Sleep' with bruvs. Which isn't an entirely off-putting proposition.

April 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Though pleasant enough to watch, there's something not fully realized about the final product here.

Engrossing, even if it doesn't quite measure up to its promise.

September 12, 2016 | Full Review…

The contemporary London twist gives the genre a shot of adrenaline and a watchable character in Tommy who would merit being seen in more adventures.

November 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A far darker side of London is painted in bleakly realistic tones in City of Tiny Lights but, like its protagonist, Travis' film shoots from the hip, has a glint in its eye and packs a mean punch.
