A combination of flat scripting and dull camerawork leave 'The Man Inside' languishing in TV-movie hell.
A gritty urban thriller which, whilst packing a punch, misses its target once too often.
It's so mired in overwrought melodrama that, while it packs a few punches, it fails to deliver the knockout.
The Man Inside is well made but pushes us towards a kind of hyper-realism that pays decreasing dividends.
We would say something about "first-round knockout", but then it's not really a boxing picture. So, we won't.
Peter Mullan adds gruff authority and class but there is not much else to commend this effort from writer/director/producer Dan Turner.
This is intelligent and ambitious work.
It is capably assembled but so incessantly, furiously gloomy as to be almost unwatchable.
Director Dan Turner demonstrates the occasional piece of visual flair, but his storytelling abilities totally shot.
Engaging, well made urban drama with striking camerawork, strong performances and a powerful central theme, though the dialogue wobbles occasionally and there are a couple of embarrassingly bad lines.
Strong British independent cinema deserves an audience, but The Man Inside never lands a punch.
