I should have listened to all the other reviews & not bothered, even though it was on 3 (there is a reason for this) crap acting & dodgy accents for a start. It adds nothing to the story than the other 2x films (Essex Boys & Footsoldier) other than the conspiracy theory that the Police had something to do with the murders. This seems just to far out to me. Essex, mid 90's, the plod killing gangsters... Anyways, take my advice & don't bother, it's total tosh!

So this is the fourth movie about the Range rover,(not Land Rover) and the shootings, and its the worst one yet.

Essex Boys was bad but had Sean Bean in it, Bonded By Blood was also bad, but you really can't hate anything with Tamar Hassan in it, and Rise Of The Foot Soldier was surprisingly watchable.

This though is really the lowest of the low, it's beyond Rancid Aluminium bad, and the acting is appalling.

I thought it was going to be just another cockney, sweary, Danny Dyer type movie, which I can tolerate, but as soon as the narrator sounded like someone from an episode of Top Gear, I knew it wasn't going to be 'tasty'.

For starters, the cast are the most pathetic depiction of 'Mockneys' I have ever seen, its as if every other word begins with C and has four letters, and anybody they do not know gets a lot of abuse for no good reason.

So all in all, it's just another excuse for lads to swear and drink beer and just be totally wrong about facts and disrespectful to the dead.

RIP Leah Betts.

Undoubtedly not the best of the four movies made based on this story. But since it's the last, so far, one tend to compare it with the previous. It should not be a testing round for new upcoming actors this, but it's understandable due to the cost's involved making it. Some of the lot are tossers. Maybe as dumb as the real characters was repulsive. It seems like where ever N.N. shows up he kills of the movie. You might be a nice guy in real life, but can you please stay away from the stage? It's embarrassing!

The first part of the the soundtrack and commentary voice is annoyingly numb. If this was an attempt to present the story closer to the actual facts ..., well it's different. Still; It grows through out as time goes by.

This is an utterly dreadful film but I knew that before I bought it. One to laugh at...the funniest aspect is the voice over narration. Every word is barked at full volume all the way through. It’s like a mockney version of the Cillit Bang bloke. He even narrates over scenes telling us what's happening instead of just letting the scene play out. Rise of the Foot Soldier is also guilty of this. ROTFS is however a very entertaining bad film. This one is only entertaining if you look at is as a Zucker Brothers take on Brit Gangster flicks. The best bit is the copper (who has a fine selection of fashionable weathered leather jackets and the troubled demeanour of Jack Cloth) asking the armed response team driver if they can 'go any faster' whilst racing to save an undercover officer. Brilliant stuff!

The one thing that will let this film down is the story. It's not that it's a bad story, or that it lacked anything its just the fact that this idea has been used and abused now withing the film world. For those of you who are blissfully unaware of what I am saying then let me fill you in. The Rettendon Range Rovers murders occured in 1995 in Rettendon, Essex. The murder saw three drug dealers Tony Tucker, Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe murdered inside their Range Rover. The three men were notorious gangsters around Essex and London at that time. In the 2000 the film "Essex Boys" was released which was based upon the murders, although this film had changed the name of the victims it told the story of the lifestyle of all three men, the incident and the aftermath, then in 2007 "Rise of The Foot Soldier" came out, a film based on the life of Carlton Leach which the final 45 minutes of the film included a more accurate, precise and reconstructed lead up to the murders. At the time although merely half the film was to do with the events leading up to the murders, the film was a minor success and people prefered it to the original Essex Boys, mainly due to original names, and accurate reneacting of the crime scenes, this together with a more realistic view of the murdered men.

In 2010 to peoples confusion the film "Bonded By Blood" was released and was nothing more than just another remake of the first two films using very much the same actors, it was deemed an absolute pointless waste of time and energy by people who had seen the others, but proved to be rather likable by people who were unaware that it was merely a story that had been retold in three films in 10 years.
