The Crew Reviews
While the twist and turns of the plot fail to surprise, the pace is kept lively with tension between characters that are as colourful as they are believable. Occupying its "Brit gangster" genre slot without any apologies, there is even a cheeky homage to a scene from Abel Ferrara's, King of New York.
Though pretty solid in general, the acting is only failed by occasional lapses in the script. Thanks to a soulful brit pop soundtrack, and violence that is inferred more than graphic; the blemishes of this movie are forgivable, in a dish that is more meat and potatoes, than cordon bleu.
Overall this is an excellent yarn that will amply satisfy lovers of the British gangster genre. Recommended!!
