Movie Info

Panic and intrigue grip the lives of a group of hardened factory workers with the arrival of a man they fear is a head-office spy sent to rob them of their redundancy payouts. The ruthless baiting between top dog Jack and his men only intensifies when the pacifist of the group, Wesley, befriends the seemingly normal outsider, David. But when Wesley discovers David is hiding a much darker secret, the seeds are planted for an explosive finale that strikes like an emotional sledgehammer and seal the fate of The Nothing Men.

Critic Reviews for The Nothing Men

All Critics (8)

Men without work feature in the occasionally engrossing yet mostly unfulfilling The Nothing Men.

Aug 18, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The Nothing Men asks its audience to accept a key coincidence, but in doing so writer-director Mark Fitzpatrick seeks to plumb the darkness of desperate men's souls.

It's a story that may have worked better on stage, or in a short film. On the big screen it feels thin.

I think this is a calling card film and he's shown what he can do with a camera and with performances.

The plotting, and the involvement of the troubled Wesley, also seems a bit contrived. But it all pays off in a powerfully satisfying climax.

Aug 11, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5

The Nothing Men's makers have delivered what seems at first a topical testosterone-laced blue collar drama of male ego on a slow burn only to deftly, almost surreptitiously flip the film upside down to become a hard-bitten psychological thriller.
