Fast paced, entertaining action flick. Not much of a story, but it has a nice mix of plots.

Swaps street cred for substance and seriously loses out. Waste of a great cast, minus the ubiquitous Jones and 98FM deity Samantha Mumba, who don't really count as great to begin with.

Poor Poor Poor. A Bad outlet for Vinnie Jones and an even worse one for Eriq lLa Salle with a Jamaican accent. Lennox Lewis stinks to high heaven and one is not sure of the exct plot or point of this movie....

"Where were you in '72 when the Brits were knocking down doors?"
-"I wasnt born yet."
"That's hardly an excuse."

Twas decent. Vinnie's good, Lennox is good. Brixton looks like Baltimore.

Not only was this film awful, but my DVD was dodgy, so I missed the last 6 minutes of the film.

The film tries to deal realistic with the british-irish problem, but it won't work really.

A very broad range of actors in this film. Lennox Lewis had me pissing myself when he was on the bin in the street! I thought the end was a bit predictable though. Not bad at all.

I picked this one up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. This seems to be what Ed Burns talks about except it's not quite a woody allen meets ireland it's more of Ireland meets Babylon meets Shin Feighn. Irish Gangster Movies rock... so what if it takes place in Brixton.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie, but it was pretty damn good.

Not bad at all, seen a lot worse.
Watchable coz you know everyone in it !!! Vinney does a good job.

Typical British gangster film with solid acting and moments of cleverness, but it's rather derivative of other films... recommended only to those who love crime films of the British variety.

One of my most Favorite Movies

There's nothing more annoying then african music playing in the background for the majority of the movie. Besides that, the movie was slow, & boring, nuff said.

Love it! Sound track was amazing. I liked the story, a whole lot different than an American one.
