Product Description

How far would you go for revenge?

When Tommy Nix (explosive new star Joe Cole) loses his girlfriend (Kimberly Nixon - Black Death, Fresh Meat) and unborn child as a result of a brutal attack by an armed gang, he vows revenge. But with the men responsible for the attack now in prison, he has no option but to follow them there.

Facing a tough, unforgiving environment where violence is an everyday occurrence, he will stop at nothing to punish those that destroyed his life. With uncontrollable rage driving him on, his quest for vengeance will burn all those who get in his way.

This is far from your average teen prison drama. It was really powerful.
Great script and honest, gritty cinematography - this really tells you how it is in a young offenders institute. I thought there was an excellent balance of drama, romance and comedy. Joe Cole is a talent on the up and English Frank makes a terrifying baddie!
If you like masterfully made indie flicks on a budget - like Bronson or Animal Kingdom - then this is for you.

SPOILER ALERT

I can not recommend this film enough. You start the film thinking that the main character deserves to be sent down after He assaults police officers.

What quickly becomes apparent is that His Girlfriend is a Probation Worker who was pregnant and had been assaulted by the scum of society. It's sad to think that youth custody is probably like this with lads out to prove themselves all the time speaking like gangsters, lashing out over the smallest of grudges. No punches are pulled, as everday life becomes a struggle to survive and exact revenage on those who done wrong.

Highly realistic, with a crystal clear HD picture and 5.1 soundtrack (you can hear the screams in your ear!)

Didn't check out all the extras, but the interviews were pretty standard and nothing special.

This is a very good film which I was very surprised about as there have been a fair few Brit duds of late. This stars Joe Cole as Tommy Nicks, he is `a father to be' with his girl who is also a probation officer in one of the less upmarket parts of London. After the London riots she has a slight spike in workload and gets herself into a position where she might pose a threat to the local vilainary. So they take swift and Draconian action, resulting in Tommy's world being blown upside down.

He is left with nothing but revenge on his mind so tracks them down to a Young Offenders Institution (YOI) and gets himself incarcerated to exact retribution. On the way he will have to deal with nasty screws, nasty inmates, nasty cops and some very nasty goings on indeed.

This then is a sort of `Scum' meets `Death Wish' and it is all done very well with a not very well known cast. There are some issues with plot and factual procedures re the police and even in the YOI, but that does not really mar what is actually a visceral and gritty piece of cinema. Special mention has to go to Shaun Dooley as nasty Prison Guard, Nash (`The Woman in Black'), who plays the ambiguous loser with aplomb. The language is all urban street and so for some they may wish they had sub titles, but it actually eases off as the film progresses and it all adds to the realism. Whilst it is violent, it does not play on those incidents as this is actually a moody thriller and the tension and underlying violence is palpable throughout.

The music is good, the direction is good and the acting is well good as some might say, all of the kids have attitude and pimp rolls. There is a walk on by a mad Scottish guy called Genghis played by new comer Brian Vernel and he was bloody genius, so keep an eye out for him.

I was just trying to find something to watch last weekend and i came up with this scene, that i found so intense i just had to keep on watching. Joe Cole is brilliant in this movie. Yes, it`s violent and the story isn`t new, but lhe acting more than makes up for it. I`ve read a lot of bad reviews towards English Frank but i actually liked it a lot. He was a vilan, a vilan you have to hate. I loved this movie so much that i watched it again the next night and then ordered the blue-ray. Very good. Brilliant acting!!!

I was a little disappointed with this. The reviews were generally all positive and so my were expectations high. The concept was interesting and had potential but the production values reminded me more of a Sunday night drama rather than a movie. The bad guys/hard men were unconvincing - more like actors pretending to be hard rather than coming across authentically as the real deal. All this said it had its moments and is. Worth a watch if you like this type of British crime drama.

acting is pretty good from everyone however the main character who goes to prison to take revenge over plays his part slightly abit too silent moody ect, as well as the main "baddy" of the piece, abit to crazy and intense all of the time. plot is predictable but film is watchable enuff but its no classic.

A great and enjoyable film. Truly, an epic performance by 99% of the cast involved.

The remaining 1% refers to our hero's arch nemesis. He is possibly the worst actor I've seen in any recent film and his comical and stereo-typical movements, constant scowling and terrible ghetto accent were so unbelievable that it impacted my general opinion of the film as a whole. Whoever cast him is a fool, simply put.

Other than that, a very enjoyable film and well worth a watch. Just try to ignore the daft baddie ;o)

One of the best youth prison films is "Scum" from the early 80's,with a very young Ray Winstone.This is a revenge story,Tommy Nix gets himself locked up so he can get back at a group of thieves,one of whom attacked Tommys pregnant girlfriend,because as his probation office,he though she might grass on them after learning about what they'd done.
A violent drama with some good all round performances,the edge is taken off the film by some of the over stylized scenes,usually in the numerous flashbacks so we see how it got to this point & soppy slightly soft vocus scenes of Tommy & his girlfriend.
As usual there is the bent prison guard who buys drugs from the inmates & generally treats them with comtempt.One thing that really really gets on my wick is that "Lee Westwood" style of speaking,white kids who seem to be confused about where there from.
Worst actor,Tommys nemesis,who struts around like some steroid pumped mountain gorilla,with that rediculous "Westwood" way of talking.An ok film that has too many stereotypes,a certain style that really does not fit with this type of film & a pretty flimsy plot stretched to breaking point.
