If there is one objective that any self-respecting director aims to achieve then it is this: to touch a nerve and connect with his audience. Only through this achievement can the message and/or morals of a film be fully understood by the spectators. In my opinion Saul Dibb manages to attain this goal with his portrayal of a vicious cycle of life in the streets of Hackney.Walters, considering he was a jailed member of So Solid Crew not so long ago, is a potentially risky choice of leading man but the gamble by Dibb in green-lighting him for his first major role can be considered to have paid dividends. Having been jailed for gun offences Walters has a wealth of experience to tap into and is able to convey the poignant messages of the director. Firstly, and quite simply, that guns are bad. Secondly, that deprived areas are difficult to extricate yourself from, in both social and economic contexts. To bring this review to a quick and simple end: see this film, you won't be disappointed.
