Nicely paced and refreshing,
This review is from: Wild Bill [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The path that this story takes is rather unusual in the face of the recent British gangster paradigms. I figured this would be another Snatch/Lock Stock et al by its artwork but it really isn't that at all - it's much more mature in story-telling and performances never seem over-done. Events may unfold rather slowly in the first half of the film for some, but it seems strategic and necessary as you may realise if you watch the entire feature.
It is certainly of the type of quality and freshness that I'd expect for 2013. I have to applaud Dexter Fletcher for this. He's obviously monitored what we've all seen before and carefully taken the time to produce something slightly different. The way the last 10 minutes played out were particularly refreshing and sent an important message that we can all relate to. Very enjoyable.
