Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Harry Potter, The Book of Eli) is at his dark and brutal best in the action-packed and sharply written Brit-Flick DEAD FISH. Accompanying Oldman on this hilarious and thrilling rollercoaster ride of gangster life gone wrong is a legendary line up including Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, The Full Monty, The Beach), Jimi Mistry (The Guru, 2012, Blood Diamond), Terence Stamp (Wanted, Yes Man, Get Smart) and Billy Zane (Titanic). DEAD FISH tells the story of Lynch (Oldman), an obscure but charming hit man sent to London for what should be a routine job. The hit becomes anything but straightforward as Lynch finds his world turned upside down when his phone is switched with a strangers . Cut off from his employer s instructions, Lynch goes on a manic rampage across London to recover his phone and find its owner, the girl of his dreams. He soon has bigger problems when he discovers he is being hunted by a rival assassin, sent by his employers to take him out. This quirky and explosive black comedy, directed by Charley Stadler, will leave viewers exhilarated and laughing and is packed with special features including cast and crew interviews and the theatrical trailer. DEAD FISH must be seen to be believed and is essential for any film collection.

Andrew Lee Potts is American. That's ok. No problem with that, except that there's no reason why he should be, and no connection at all between his nationality and the story, and there should be. What's he doing in London? How come he knows his way round so well?(would be much funnier if he didn't). A state of half-hearted panic does not add up to characterisation. All of the characters only exist in the present moment. Oldman has the emotional depth and charisma to get away with this, but Potts can create nothing deeper than a puddle.
Having said that, it's a very watchable, entertaining romp of a film. It just didn't quite know what kind of film it wanted to be; too casually and graphically violent for a comedy, too whimsical and 'potteresque' for a thriller.
Abe is stood on one of the platforms at London's Paddington Train Station begging his gorgeous girlfriend Mimi not to leave him for mum back in France (Andrew Lee Potts and Elena Anaya). But Mimi is pregnant and despairing of Abe's dubious father qualities that include £3000 owed to a money-lending nutter from Northern Ireland who shouts obscenities all the time (a fabulous turn by Robert Carlyle as Danny Devine). Then there's Abe's penchant for thieving anything that isn't nailed down. And this is before we deal with his permanently stoned head-nodding friend Sal (a brilliant Jimi Mistry) who lives to smoke Skunk and talk Navajo babble under an array of flashing light bulbs. But then things really take a turn for the worse...
A thief robs Mimi's mobile and makes a run for it - but halfway down the platform is whacked unceremoniously in the head by a sharply dressed man called Lynch (Gary Oldman) - an assassin for hire whose just stepped off a train to get his next assignment from locker 705. Lynch hands the phone back to Mimi - but on seeing her hopeful and smiling young face - is instantly stunned into silence.
Later when he's with a Dominatrix in a seedy Soho room - Lynch explains the strange sensation he's feeling to the slightly startled leather-bound prostitute (very funny scene with Frances Barber). Trashing his posterior she wearily tells him "...it sounds like love dear..." Lynch suddenly lights up. She's right.Read more ›

An unusual kind of art house black comedy, but with an excellent cast and production.Published 22 months ago by Mr Adam Freeman
A good action movie, with a good cast, on the same line of Guy Ritchie's movie. A killer (or two o maybe 3) and a bunch of young stoned guys. Read morePublished on 15 Dec. 2011 by Empe
