5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Brit flick, 3 July 2003
By 
This review is from: Five Seconds To Spare [DVD] (DVD)
Quite why this film wasn't released on the large screen is beyond me! Five Seconds to Spare is an intelligent engaging black comedy about a musician trying to make a name for himself (Max Beesley) but who gets caught up in events of which he has little control. It is, however, quite unlike the standard "you muppet..." quasi-gangster films that seem to have bombarded the consciousness over the last few years. The cast brings together some unlikely elements in the forms of the scary Ray Winstone, the ultra talented musician-turned-actor Max Beesley, the hilarious Chris "I've lost my lucky plectrum" Marshall (from BBC's My Family) and even a cameo by John Peel (who unsurprisingly owns a record store in the film). Everyone has something important to say and do which makes for a refreshing change. The atmosphere is humerously dark and and has just the right amount of bleakness without being gimmicky. The score is unusual and very effective - much better the incessantly dull beat of the 'Lock Stock' ilk. The film is based on a cult-reading book by Jonathan Coe, and it is liklely that you will want to watch it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars five secounds to spare, 7 Mar 2013
This review is from: Five Seconds To Spare [DVD] (DVD)
i loved seeing the end result to this film as while filming as an on set tv/film extra i did not get to see much of the story so to see the end result is great you mite see a glimpse of myself going up an escaloter or walking around by shops it was a hard 2 days filming but the end result was worth the wait to see as was really trying to gasp the story but while working was impossible to do so well done to the producers for a great film dont understand why it did not make the big screen.
