Cast including the legendary Tim Roth, rising star Jack O'Connell and talented Peter Mullan, were enough of a persuasion to watch The Liability. Tim Roth plays Roy, a cold-hearted assassin who, at first lacks a conscience and has pathological tendencies, similar to the character he portrayed in the 1984 critically acclaimed British film The Hit. O'Connell plays emotionally immature Adam, a 19-year old whose troublesome nature gets him on the wrong side of his mother's criminal mastermind boyfriend Peter (Peter Mullan).
Adam is sent by Peter on an assassin job with Roy. The pair's comical chemistry and their opposing characteristics contribute humor and sarcasm towards the dark plot. Midway through the assassination they are interrupted by a Latvian woman (Talulah Riley) who comes seeking revenge and reveals knowledge of a sex trafficking scandal which thickens the plot. This brings more depth to the plot and connects with the characters back-stories effectively. A cat and mouse type chase then goes on between the characters with further twists, back-stabbing and violent lashes. The concluding scene ends the plot in an exciting, unpredictable and satisfying way. A must-see film that has humor, an interesting plot and talented British actors- recommended.
Jack O'Connell plays a young man who gets in trouble with his - slightly dodgy - stepfather and, as a punishment, is roped into the `family business' and asked to do something equally dodgy, which involves driving hitman Tim Roth to his next job.
It's a road movie which could be pretty average if it wasn't for Tim Roth's performance. The comedy doesn't always work. The performances can be a bit stilted, yet Tim seems to carry the whole thing on his own and makes it worth watching.
Special mention to the location scout who has found some truly outstanding filming locations around the north of England to set some of the action in.
If you're a fan of low budget British gangster movies (or simply of Tim Roth) then you should give this a go. The ending seems to divide audiences, but the film is enjoyable enough for you to ignore that minor point if it isn't to your taste.
