Product Description

Product Description

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.

There are so many reasons why this film should have been better than it is. Gary Oldman is brilliant, as ever as the utterly ruthless amoral assassin. His inability to comprehend his own evil is fascinating, and towards the end quite moving. Robert Carlyle is highly entertaining as the mega-stressed, ultra-violent lone-shark. Terrance Stamp is intriguing, too. There are several memorable and entertaining moments in the twisting and turning plot....so why doesn't it hang together better?
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.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Jun. 2014
Format: Blu-ray
Twenty-something loser Abe Kline - employee of the month at a tiny Soho lock and chain shop called Mr. Megakey - is having a bad day.

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.

I actually bought this film because i'm an Andrew Lee Potts fan, it's not a bad film, it could be better and should have been better, i agree it didn't make sense having Andrew be american although it does say in the film he'd lived in London for 2 years presumably thats how he knew his way round. I did find myself laughing out loud at a lot of things and it was entertaining, Billy Zane seemed a bit superfluous and his scenes didn't really make much sense or gel with the rest of the film,my main bug bear is that during the big reveal scene at the end of the film it seems to have been incredibly badly edited and therefore means some of the scene doesn't make much sense and the ending seems very cobbled together. that said i would watch it again it was a fun watch and Gary Oldman and Robert Carlysle were very fun to watch, oh and if you like him ALP is very cute in this

This has been compared to "Lock, stock and two smoking barrels" but it is way behind that glorious movie. Each of the characters here does a good job, and manages to entertain to some extent, but the whole does not hold together. You will not pause the movie to check the washing machine, ok, but the feeling is that something is missing. Perhaps it has been pushed a bit too far to be realistic, so one keeps a sort of distance. Which is not the case with "Lock,...". Maybe 2 stars are too low a mark, but 3 would be inappropriate.

Drawn in by the various names on the cast list. It's some time since I have come across such a poor offering. Gave up half way through. Must be a source of embarrassment for some of the established actors involved.
