Reviews

Paul Callow (Mackenzie Crook) is fed up with city life and driving trains and when two people fall under his train in as many weeks, he really has had enough! Then he hears the 'three and out' rule -  three fatal accidents in a month qualifies you for early retirement with 10 years salary... lump sum! Paul suddenly sees a way of clearing his debts and escaping to a better life and all he has to do is find a willing victim. Enter down and out Tommy Cassidy (Colm Meaney) who is willing to help Paul out by being his third fatality, but not before he ties up a few loose ends with his long suffering ex-wife (Imelda Staunton) and his beautiful daughter (Gemma Arterton). Over the course of the weekend, relationships between all four are changed forever but when Monday morning arrives, Paul and Tommy are confronted with the harsh reality of the deal they struck. Surely they won t go through with it. Or will they?

If I had seen this in the cinema I would probably have come away slightly underwhelmed - but viewing it as a typical British comedy drama (emphasis on the drama) I think it's really pretty good. Although perhaps light on the comedy it does have some very funny moments and the story engaged me and always kept me interested in the characters. When I read the plot synopsis I wondered if this would be too black a comedy for my tastes, but apart from the strange Frenchman (which seemed to me not to add much to the story) the plot is not as dark as I had thought. You could perhaps predict the way the story twists but I found it a dramatic and effective ending. Great performances by Colm Meaney and Imelda Staunton in particular, and a well chosen soundtrack help make the film. Set your expectations right and this might be worth a watch.

Format: DVD
A great unsung small British film. A super little cast deliver a super little idea. It is a nice easy watch, laced with humour and effortless playfulness. Yes it is silly and goofy, but it is a good find for Brit film fans.

A train driver suffers 2 suicides in a week. He realises a third death and he can retire on a loophole pay-out, all he needs is a third train death. He stumbles across a suicidal man and the pair strike a deal. But, will they go through with it?

The film stars MacKenzie Crook (Office and Pirates) and Colm Meaney, co-starring Gemma Arteton, and also has a cameo from Kerry Katona.

Arteton fans will be glad to see glimpses of her naked, even if with MacKenzie Crook. There is also a lot of swearing too.

This is one of those films that I keep coming back to, although it was certainly at its best the first time I watched it. The comedy's there (not in bucket-loads, but plenty enough), but I also found it very moving. It's perhaps not entirely realistic at all points, but that doesn't stop it being a very good little film.

I would certainly recommend it, and reckon it's far more deserving of your attention than the average flick.

Unusual but ridiculous plot which strains all credibility. Acting is good however and Gemma Arterton looks gorgeous as usual. Okay for late night watching after a few beers.

All characters do well here, you will giggle many times, and possibly well up occasionally too...
Worth £2 for an evenings fun.

Format: DVD
This is a good film of the clever British style but it was forced out of general release in the U.K. because the premiere was picketed by tube drivers. In fact the tube drivers came out much nicer than expected in a job affected occasionally by selfish people with no thought of the consequences of their actions on others. It really was a pity that more people did not have the chance to see the film in British cinemas, it is entertaining and very good.

I thought this was an interesting comedy, and much more serious towards the end that I thought. I am not really a fan of Mackenzie Crook, but he was watchable in this, and Colm Meany steals the show with his performance.
