There are a fair few good ideas in Shank -- a nicely-staged market scene featuring Colin Salmon and an animated fight scene being two -- but they don't come together into anything that even looks halfway like a movie.

That the entire narrative can be easily compressed into a 90-second dream sequence says much more than the garbled anti-violence messages.

If this is the future of film then we're all doomed.

Shank boasts some lively direction and has a couple of nice ideas but is ultimately let down by a repetitive script, some poor performances and a dodgy central message.
