Starring Ray Winstone (Colin Diamond - the Cuckold husband ) , Ian McShane (Meredith - a cold homosexual Intellectual), Tom Wilkinson (Archie who loves his mum and is a very loyal friend), John Hurt ( a odious, vicious and nasty ex jailbird with a yearning for the bad old days), Steven Dillane (Mal, a mad dog without conscience, hell bent on revenge) Joanne Whalley (The wife).
In a lot of the other reviews the reviewers seem to have missed what I saw. It's about a gang of ageing friends supporting a mate who has been jilted by his wife. The principal character Ray Winston "captures" his wife's younger lover and takes him to a deserted house where the gang decide what to do with him. From there on it has a shade of "Reservoir Dogs" about it, as it all takes place within one room with a few flash backs.
In my opinion the part where they are taunting the unfortunate "lover" about what he has done was hilarious - evil but so funny. The quips and interaction between the characters was superb, everyone giving stellar performances.
I can't claim to be a great John Hurt fan but here gave the best performance of his career, well worth an Oscar.

I have just two criticisms. Firstly, actors never seem as nasty as real bad guys. Perhaps because we would not want to see that level of evil in a movie. Secondly, this is very short film. After an hour I was curious as to what would happen next? The answer was nothing. It was the end. It states approximately 90 minutes but it seemed more like an hour at most. What there was of it was very enjoyable. If you've ever been rejected by someone you love passionately you'll understand the meaning and message of Ray's performance. JP.
and less than ninety minutes long for impatient viewers, I would also say there is modern day shakespeare in this.
One of the best psychological films I've seen, along with 'Sexy Beast'.
'Colin' is devastated, four of his mates gather to support their friend, deciding to kidnap 'Colin's' wife's lover so their friend can exact revenge for his loss.
The film has a collection of familiar faces on board including 'John Hurt' 'Ian McShane' 'Tom Wilkinson' and 'Stephen Dillane' The film at times although dealing with a sensitive situation, does in fact fringe on humorous at times as the five friends ' f '-it and blind it through much of the film.
Have to say, despite a great cast list, the patter between them does drift on some.
It's worth watching, if but once....
