Very disappointing - Poor, poor,poor,
This review is from: Spivs [DVD]  (DVD)Having been a huge fan of British "gangster" type films like Lock Stock, Snatch, Shooting Fish etc. I had great expectations for "Spivs" and was especially excited to see the superb cast list which includes Paul Kaye (of Dennis Pennis fame) Jack Dee, Nick Moran and Tamar Hassan.
HOWEVER..............Around half way into the film I thought "what on earth is going on here". The plot and narrative was bizarre, nonsensical, pointless and disjointed, the acting was weak and very "wooden" in some places, the editing was terrible and the direction was atrocious.
The whole storyline didn't make any sense and I felt most of the scenes were very artificial and staged, as if they had been put in simply for the sake of it.
Overall I barely managed to finish watching the film and couldn't turn it of quick enough.
What a waste of money - TERRIBLE FILM! I'd give it 1/10 and that's being generous.
