Frequently Bought Together
Drama set in Spain in the 1980s. Frankie (Danny Dyer), is on the run from the high-rises of South London to a new life in Malaga with nothing but a tin stuffed full of cash. Having no idea that this delivery of cash to super-suave playboy and ex-con, Charlie (Tamer Hassan), will change his life forever, he soon becomes one of the gang, and finds himself drawn into a flamboyant and violent world of organised crime.

Danny Dyer plays the lead character with enough boyish charm to carry it all off with aplomb amongst all the effing and blinding and tough cockney characters (and i'm only talking about the women ! serioulsly !).
There is a pulsating eighties soundtrack which i guess is a bit too much at times but brings back memories of Duran Duran,Lacoste T-shirts and brightly coloured shell suits.
The plot is wrapped up in a satisfying ending and at the end of an hour and a half of drugs,money,guns,girls,flash cars,flash boats,double and triple crosses,duran duran records and plenty of effing and blinding i was left well satisfied.
Not the greatest Brit gangster flick but certainly well above some of the post Lock Stock/Snatch efforts.
One of the best things about this film is the cinematography. A lot of thought has gone into the sets and the "feel" of the film, and the detail with some of the 1980s sports fashion on display is pretty impressive (if amusing). One of the worst things about the film is the dialogue. The hackneyed "sarf Lundun" one liners start off by being amusing but end up getting on your nerves and spoiling the film. I'm not 100% convinced the script writers intended the dialogue to be as hilarious as it sounds.
The characters are well acted and believable. Particularly noteworthy, for me, was Geoff Bell as Sammy. He is utterly convincing as a total nutcase. Its also worth checking out the "alternative ending" provided on the DVD, which I thought was better than the "real" ending.
Coupled with a feel-good and authentic 1980s soundtrack this is pleasant, amusing, viewing - although its certainly no masterpiece.
Nowadays it seems like the words `Danny' and `Dyer' means a box office turkey in move-going terms, but The Business is an early exception to the now goes-without-saying Dye rule.
The glitzy, sunny Spanish sets, combined with the horrible characters Dyer has to converse with (yes, even more horrible than Dyer himself) and the thumping eighties soundtrack, actually make The Business an enjoyable little British gangster flick. It may not be Goodfellas, but it has a few `Joe Pesci' moments along the way which will leave you squirming. It may also not be up to the standard of Lock Stock and Snatch, but if you're looking for some hard-nosed entertainment for an hour and a half, you could probably do worse (such as Danny Dyer's more recent films!).
The characters are believable, and engaging. Plus, the movie doesn't out-stay its welcome and moves along at a brisk pace, and doesn't get boring or preachy one bit.
It's not a classic, but it's worthy of a watch.
The other asset is Frankie, a rude boy played as cocky but a bit vulnerable too, whose expressions get both these aspects. He seems more personable than he should, as if the whole escapade was more a gross error in judgement than anything, which is probably a factor in real life, often. The music is very good - plenty of Blondie and other hits of the time - and the Costa del Sol location helps, as do the 80s clothes. Frankie exudes a kind of sexiness as he struts around in 80s shorts trying to be what he isn't really, but there seems to be no going back.
