A flawed but interesting downbeat Brit thriller with some creepy, leftfield jolts, calling to mind Mike Hodges with a twist of Tarantino.
Roth's performance and handful of dry-as-a-bone one-liners keep it from the straight-to-DVD pile. Just.
This British film is consistently just a little better and more surprising than it first appears.
It's the performances of Roth and O'Connell (and that of Peter Mullan as their imposing boss) that I want to highlight here.
Blows and bullets are exchanged, severed limbs stolen, ruthless sex-traffickers encountered.
Blackly comical writing and direction add a playful slant to what could have been a typically over-serious British crime thriller.
Films are invariably fuelled by fantasy but it's the supposedly gritty context that makes this stuff so hard to swallow.
Promising talent all round, including director Craig Viveiros.
The movie, directed with insufficient faith in the writing by Craig Viveiros, sells out character development in favour of garish contrivance ...
The film goes nowhere much in affably elaborate patterns - like a deranged SatNav ...
Offers some well-rounded performances from Roth, O'Connell and Mullan ... it offers nothing beyond the usual markers of such a coming-of-age film ...
Watchable, blackly comic British thriller enlivened by likeable performances, some engagingly left-field turns and a script that's peppered with decent one-liners ...
An entertaining enough movie that amused me and kept me engaged. Interesting Relationship blossoms between the two unlikely characters! Worth a watch!
To make amends for smashing up his gangster stepfather's car, teenager Adam (O'Connell) is giving the task of acting as a driver for hitman Roy (Roth). Things get messy when a backpacker escapes after witnessing one of their dirty deeds.
Another day, another awful British crime flick. Here we get the tired old "hitman on his last job" routine with groan-inducing references to previous Roth films 'The Hit' and 'Reservoir Dogs'. Somebody really needs to tell the British film industry there's more to film than just costume dramas and gangster movies. Like most U.K productions, the only positive aspect here is the acting, (O'Connell is charismatic despite playing a seriously annoying character), but when cliched tripe like this is all that's churned out, it's little wonder so many Brits are acting in U.S cinema.
