4.0 out of 5 stars Cain and Abel 24 Jun 2011
By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a difficult film to categorise so I will abandon the attempt. Gary Stretch plays the eponymous heavy, an ex-con employed by the horrible Stephen Rea playing a cultured gangster with gusto. The cast includes a lot of talent from Christopher Lee through to Vinnie Jones playing a very nasty policeman indeed. There are plenty of twists and turns when it transpires the Heavy has a brother who is an up-and-coming politician. Keep careful notes here folks; they give you all the clues. Gary Stretch is not going to play the Hamlet in the near future - his background is boxing (he fought Chris Eubank) and modelling - but he plays the sort of role that Sylvester Stallone would take in the US. There's a fair amount of blood, lots of shooting, and a puzzle for you to work out. London is used to its best as a location, and whoever set up the interiors really did a good job, they looked like they were "dressed" for an estate agent's showing.

3.0 out of 5 stars A tale of two brothers 7 Nov 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Heavy is the story of Mitchell 'Boots' Mason (Gary Stretch - Alexander), a recently-paroled man who is known to be able to get things 'done'. He works for West-End businessman Anawalt (Stephen Rea - V for Vendetta) who feels that Boots owes him a debt for his release. Meanwhile, Boots' brother Christian Mason is running for Prime Minister and despite their acrimonious past wants to make amends with Boots, but for what reason? All the while, the hard-nosed & dubiously-moralled Detective Inspector Dunn (Vinnie Jones - Snatch) is out to make Boots' life a misery due to indiscretions between them from the past. Will Boots manage to shake off these remnants of his past and start afresh?

The Heavy is a London-based conspiracy movie, whilst it starts all gung-ho & brash it soon becomes a who's-after-who saga. It's well shot for the most-part with some really snappy direction following Boot's TVR around London to a soundtrack produced by Paul Oakenfold himself. There are some big names filling in the small roles (Christopher Lee - Star Wars - Prequel Trilogy/ The Lord of the Rings Trilogy plays the brother's father) and the beautiful Shannon Sossamon (A Knight's Tale) plays the love interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Genuine Surprise 4 Mar 2013
By Seven Ragged Tigers TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this ages ago,and forgot all about it,deliberately I suspect,as the prospect of watching boyband refugee Lee Ryan attempting to act was one I was sure I would find painful.But when I did get round to watching it I got a real shock,because it turned out to be a really good film.The story revolves around two brothers,ex-con Gary Stretch and high flying politician Adrian Paul,their strained relationship,and the contract that appears to have been taken out on Stretch's characters life.I was surprised by the standard of acting as well,which is surprisingly high,Stephen Rea and Christopher Lee are always good,and the rest of the cast seem to have raised their games to match them.Gary Stretch has never been better,and even Vinnie Jones turns in a good performance.The direction is solid enough,the whole thing moves along at a constant pace,and there are some good action sequences as well,the result of which makes for gripping action/thriller.

There are a few problems,the matrix style,slow motion shoot out didn't work for me,and didn't fit within the film.Some of the editing is a little clunky as well,and there is a bit of a gaping hole in the plot,but Im not saying what as it could spoil things.But overall I thought it was a pretty good film and Im glad I bought it,and I will watch it again.As for Lee Ryan,hes not in it that much,and isnt required to do a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars BRITISH DRAMA PLUS SOME ACTION, 23 Sep 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is another British organize crime movie. If you have watched these in the past, you know they do not follow the successful American formula. This movie has more plot and drama than action. There is no one dodging bullets, jumping on car roofs, or even a good chase scene. This movie has improved on past British models in that it incorporates a sound track relative to the movie. Our main character, Mitchell "Boots" Mason is an ex-con working as a debt collector for a crime boss. As the movie progresses, we discover he is not "all bad" as his occupation may suggest, but a realistic complex character. Early on he is looking at pictures of the family he lost while a Kate Bush cover song is playing in the background. As the movie goes along we discover more about Boots' past.

The plot has the predictable British twists that are too easy to figure out, perhaps a statement about how British film makers view their audience. It is nice to know Christopher Lee is still alive, but his role is minor and he doesn't bite people in the neck anymore. The movie is a step in the right direction, but don't expect a fast paced action film. No sex, no nudity. F-bomb gets dropped, fingers get cut off, and a woman is punched.

The box claims, "no innocent bystander is safe as bullets fly" is an exaggeration of the action and might, at a stretch, apply to one scene.
