Thoroughly enjoyable Brit film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Liability [DVD] (DVD)
The basic story here - without giving you too much in the way of spoilers - is that a hit man who's thinking of retiring (Tim Roth) takes on the services of a young driver (Jack O'Connell) and then a girl with a grudge (Talulah Riley) gets thrown into the mix to complicate matters.
Tim Roth excels as the matter-of-fact hit man and Jack O'Connell plays a good supporting role as the young whippersnapper who thinks he might just have what it takes to fill Roth's shoes. The ambience is very much "Brit film" and all the better for it. Some of the plot's twists and turns are fairly obvious but that doesn't seem to detract from what I thought was a thoroughly enjoyable film.
There are some funny bits which, although perhaps not of genuine "laugh out loud" quality, are certainly worth a giggle. Don't expect Hollywood-style explosions, special effects or anything like that - it's the characters that pull you along with the plot and they do that in a sort of sedate, yet satisfying way.
Take a chance of this relatively unknown film (it hasn't even got a Wikipedia page at the time of writing) and I think most of you will enjoy it.
