Movie Info

A London gangster goes to war with his oldest friend following a terrible betrayal in this gritty crime drama. Tom Sheridan (Ian Pirie) is an ex-boxer who has risen up through the underworld, and now owns a thriving strip club in the heart of the city. When Tom's longtime friend and colleague Ian (Michael Mckell) asks to use the club for a private party, the request is granted without question. When Tom learns that the party involves child prostitution and pedophilia, however, his intense disgust leads him to compile damning evidence against his Ian and his depraved associates. Upon learning of Tom's plot, Ian vows to do anything and everything in his power to silence his former ally. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • The film is too smitten with its loathsome small-time crooks to generate much interest in the plight of the victims or portray any women as anything but hapless bystanders.
