Product Description

Product Description

St George's Day is a British crime thriller that follows the story of infamous gangster cousins Micky Mannock and Ray Collishaw. Having long since graduated from the terraces they now run the top firm in London. But when they lose a drug shipment belonging to the Russian Mafia, a turf war threatens to tear their empire apart.
Their only hope is a potential heist in Berlin that'll clear their debts and set them up for life. Pursued by the Russians and the police they travel undercover with a huge English super firm who are heading across to watch the 3 Lions play Germany on St George's Day. While the police are diverted by the England and German firms going head to head in the mother of all battles, Micky and Ray have one shot at the heist that could save both themselves and everything they've ever fought for. But they hadn't counted on a grass at the heart of their firm whose sole intent is to bring them crashing down.

As well as directing the film, Harper also wrote and stars in it. He is ideally suited for the role as a Londoner who has acted in various capital-based crime capers, including Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which often have a football violence slant, such as The Rise of the Footsoldier and The Football Factory. True to form, St George's Day includes a football hooligan side-plot. This shouldn't put off those for whom hooliganism is about as attractive as the prospect of a fist in the gob. The plot and some great characters with funny lines are more important to the film.

One of these characters is Frank Harper's character, gangland boss Micky Mannock who narrates the film. It is generally held that voiceovers should be used with caution by screenwriters - they are not simply an easy way to explain the action that should really be suggested. Well, Micky's voiceover helps add depth to his witty, intelligent character, but more cleverly it sends us off on wild goose chases of suspicion. Micky can trust virtually no one.

The only people he can truly trust is his cousin and business partner Ray Collishaw played by the hulking Craig Fairbrass and Charles Dance's shadowy Trenchard, who is possibly a senior civil servant and can certainly pull strings. When it comes down to it, the rest of his crew could either be working for rival gangsters or the police or even both.
Things go wrong when a huge shipment of drugs goes missing in the North Sea and the firm find themselves owing millions of pounds to Russian gangsters who are considerably nastier than them. That's not to say Micky and Ray are of the criminal-but-basically-good-guys school of gangster hero. They are pathologically violent and don't mind a quick massacre just to prove it.

Despite a strong cast including Craig Fairbrass, Dexter Fletcher, Charles dance, and Sean Pertwee to name but a few I found my interest in this film waning after the first hour. The script if not the film lost its way and seemed repetitive and cliched. I enjoy Guy Ritchie's movies but to me this was a knock off and contained all the usual content, language and unoriginality of the British Gangster genre. The character played by Keeley Hazell was irritating. The character was a one dimensional stereotype of a gangsters moll, all mouth and no brains and certainly cliched character wise. This film was too long; the potential quality was overrun by the quantity.

The constant narration is a boring giveaway; he is going to survive. The film glorifies the success of truly nasty characters. The women are sex objects and caricatures, the Russians speak Russian with expected Polish accents . The storyline is fairly good and some of the editing brilliant. But it would work so much better as parody: for example Charles Dance tries a posh mockney but it does not work, yet a bit more hamming would have been fine. I can't recommend this .

I must admit I was in two minds about watching this film. It's basically the story of 2 gangsters who take an army of Hooligans over to Berlin for a big pay day; after losing a shipment of drugs. I don't really enjoy films about gang violence, as it unsettles me a little. After giving it a punt, though, I was surprised at how tame it actually was. That's not to say it's not a good film, I quite enjoyed it. There is a lot of swearing, and gun violence - but it's a gangster flick, so what can you expect. There are only two scenes in which the hooligans fight, and both are watered down. Jamie Foreman (Eastender's Derek Branning) is the Police Officer on the gangster's trail. There is also an element of The Departed included. One of the firm is talking to the cops, one of the cops is talking to the firm. It's a good movie, with interesting characters, and a decent enough story.

It is so poor, rips off goodfellas after about 10 minutes when they are in a club....its actually embarrassing to watch....its really really rubbish....i watched it all the way through and didn't improve once, very badly done, weak characters, they tried to be the Sopranos and was more The Bundys.. Avoid!!!

A truly entertaining British gangster film from Frank Harper. This film has the lot. I saw this at the cinema and couldn't wait for it to be released on DVD to add to my collection of Brit films. This is a thoroughly entertaining film with some twists along the way. The voice-over gives it a bit of an edge as it makes it seem more real. Don't want to spoil it for anyone by giving the plot away but do yourself a favour and get a copy you wont be disappointed. 5* film for me on many counts.
