And this month's gangster movie release is.....
on 21 September 2014
First off, it's got nothing at all to do with football hooliganism. There is one scene where one geeza' is telling a woman that he used to fight at football matches, but the fundamental part of the narrative is that there is a heist a guess what? It's only gone bloomin' wrong!!!
And he's avin' a larf!!!
That's the writer director that is. As you would expect,the film is the pits, and these films, like low budget horrors get released almost every other week here in the UK, the covers are more or less the same, and there is always some sort of scribing on the cover like 'the best British thriller since The Long Good Friday' to get the working class man worked up.
But it's like the director has watched too much Tarantino and Guy Ritchie movies and tried to do his own version. There are monologues about fast food, boxing and obviously a double cross, and its horrible to watch.
The characters are all stereotypical of this sort of movie, one has a heart of gold because of his past, one is a nutter, one is a family man, and one is ex forces who says a prayer before the robbery.
The supposed monologues are cringe worthy, the suits are something out of Buddy's Song, and there is a twist at the end, that irritates.
Oh and there is a bent copper. There's always a bent copper.
If I could put a scribing on the DVD cover, it would simply say 'pfft'.
