Shot in high contrast black and white with splashes of Sin City style colour, and a great British gritty edge, The Jack trilogy stars a host of fantastic british actors including Tamer Hassan (Bonded by Blood, Layer Cake), Simon Phillips (Jack Said, Jack Says), Dexter Fletcher (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Stardust), Adam Deacon (Adulthood, Kidulthood), Jason Flemyng (Clash of the Titans, Kick Ass) Martin Kemp (The Krays), with Olivia Hallinan (TV’s Sugar Rush) Zack Galligan (Gremlins) Doug Bradley (the infamous Pinhead of Hellraiser), Danny Dyer (The Business) and Mike Reid (Eastenders) to name but a few!

Based on the popular graphic novels by Paul Tanter.

In his extras interview for Jack Said, Danny Dyer comments to the effect he hopes that 'they get a good little film out of it'. He is probably half right, little films these are but on an absolute scale not good. They are however more than the sum of their rather cheap parts and were clearly made with passion.

In the principal role Simon Phillips is surprisingly good in places, not so good in others where he has to convince as a lean, mean, bad-guy killing machine.

Jack Says: first in the series with a visibly low budget. It is lifted by some quality guest stars in Rula Lenska and Mike Reid, let down by some bad support acting. Setting the tone for the whole series there is a little too much "Ahhh'mmmm from Laaahndan, me. Sawwwt it ahhhhhht!' going on. Not bad overall.

Jack Said: presumably on the back of a good reception to the first film a bit more cash on display and even a few fireworks. Opting to be both a prequel and sequel to film one it is a challenge to follow in places but at least several actors return to help continuity. Improvement on the first film.

Jack Falls: following directly from the end of Jack Said, the film completes the storyline in a satisfying manner. As well as looking more expensive there was clearly more cash about this time with Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher and Martin Kemp all lending famous faces to largely under-written roles and ensuring some comfort for the casual viewer. That said, continuity this time round is poor with some Jack Said roles re-cast. This does though mean we get the pleasure of 'Lark Rise to Candleford' girl Olivia Hallinan swearing like a trooper and giving, by some distance, the best performance of the trilogy. Surprisingly touched by the ending (or what seemed to be the end).

Overall a set of films I enjoyed and found reasonable value. Experience of watching is perhaps like a lucky dip barrel, if you like the films you will find different things to enjoy.

Having now seen all three of these, it's interesting to see the the increase in production values (and presumably budget) in each film. Although each one improves on the last in every sense, the first, Jack Says, is still strong by comparison to most British indie films. Simon Phillips and Rita Ramnani are good in their roles and supoorting by a great Mike Reid, a snarling Rula Lenksa and philosophical, pre- Looking For Eric, Eric Cantona. Paris looks beautiful and the amnesia aspect throws up some interesting twists and shocks.

Jack Said steps things up a gear. With more action and a bigger cast including Danny Dyer, David O'Hara (a great actor featured in films such as The Departed, Wanted and Braveheart and who simply isn't in enough films) and some of the originals from Jack Says. Reminiscent of a British version of The Departed, we see how Jack gets into the situation in the first film, with more twists that leave you guessing right up until the last.

Then there's Jack Falls which is not only another leap on from before, but takes things in a different direction. Whereas the first stories were told in colour with black and white for the flashbacks, Jack Falls is entirely balck and white, with the occasional hint of colour (such as blood or an item of clothing). Everything looks beautiful and crisp, and the colours stand out further against the black and white. It also helps emphasise the film noir style. All the actors up their games further, the writing and direction are improved, the fights, stunts and set pieces are not only inventive but actually quite spectacular, and the cast in this one - Phillips, Ramnani, Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Alan Ford, Olivia Hallinan, Tamer Hassan, Adam Deacon, Martin Kemp and Doug Bradley is one of the best ensembles in a single film I've seen in years. Add these to the other two films and you have a great trilogy well worth getting.

Forget the stars, they only make brief appearances, almost cameo roles, trying to lend creditability to the films, or getting paid, depends on how you want to look at it.
The films themselves are entertaining & shot in that sin city/spirit kind of style that, depending on mood, enjoy or have you reaching for the aspirin.
