Don't Mack me off like a two bob!,
This review is from: Love, Honour And Obey [DVD]  (DVD)
No I don't know what that means, and neither does Ray Kreed, Daddy of the North London boys. Facing Ray across the river is Sean and the South London boys, a man of taste with his decent champagne, his classy bars, and his tendency to make up words as he goes along.
Love, Honour & Obey is a gangster movie following the progress of Johnny (Johnny Lee Miller) in joining his mate Jude's gang (Jude Law) headed up by Ray Kreed (Ray Winstone - who else). They run scams, they fight with South London and throughout it all Fat Alan gets stabbed, beaten up, drugged, forced to eat dog food, and blown up until he thinks it's about time he gets another line of work.
A London Gangster movie with an edge overlaid with some highly funny moments, particularly the boys disguised as arabs trying to knick a load of diamonds after taking some viagra. Clearly made on the cheap - why spend the wedge when you don't need to - and stuffed with cracking one liners and some karaoke performances that stun - Sean and Trevors "Fireball XL5" duet and the opening "Avenues and Alleyways" by the North London Mob musically punctuate a great movie.
Special moments include Kath & Ray (the other Ray) solving his erectile dysfunction and Fat Alan demonstrating his hand to hand combat skills and ending up in hospital. A raft of great performances in a film appeared in, written and directed by Dominic Anciano and Ray Burdis, writers of "Operation Good Guys" and "Final Cut".
I loved this film, I've watched it many times and the one liners never fail to make me laugh, especially Ray Kreed to the TV Soap Director "Shut up you, you're fat and I'll throw you in the river" - I suppose you had to be there.
