Let's go fishing...,
This review is from: Best Laid Plans [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Loosely based on 'Of Mice And Men', the film brings us into Notingham and into lives of two men, one with a mental age of seven.
Graham gets into trouble with the local gangster, and owes him £10,000, but has no means of paying. The gangster decides that Agbaje should be introduced into the world of underground fighting, in order to pay off Grahams debt....
It's a marvellous little film, which is harrowing and heart warming at the same time, thanks to the two central performances. They really have great chemistry, and make the film as good as it should be.
The film does suffer from the old cliché of the gangster, and O'Hara, despite being very good, is your by the numbers gangster, down to the fancy apartment and the endless supply of henchmen.
It's a shame that this film will attract the wrong audience, thanks to the awful cover that will attract the Danny Dyer fan, and thus end up with negative feedback.
Ignore the cover, it's a wonderful movie, with a sense of unease from the moment Agbaje steals a washing machine, but also very funny in places too.
