I have been fascinated by the Rettendon case for a long time and always felt that there was a great film to be made about it. Despite many attempts (some good, some average, some poor) there has never been a really great one. If you feel the same way as me, then The Fall Of The Essex Boys is the film you have been waiting for.
The most truthful telling of the story, it is as emotionally involving as it is violent and shocking.
Unlike many British gangster films, it is directed with real aplomb. The final chase sequence on foot is as good as anything in Point Break and equally as thrilling. The acting is also universally excellent.
I was lucky enough to see this film last week and cannot wait to see it again.
You won't be disappointed.
