One of the realists films. Shows a snap shot of underworld life in liverpool and the gun culture amoung gangsters and petty thugs.
The cast are non actors but everyday underworld members who bring a touch of realism to their roles.
i thought the ending wasn't great and 1 or two of the deleated scenes could have been added so the audience could get a better understanding of Johns character, but i managed to follow it fine and have an understanding into the world the director was portraying.
i also feel that it could have been more violent and crude to really reflect real life.
with a small budget and no trained actors, i think this is a classic film. the acting is great and the characters are excellent
if you love gangster, real life flicks or wanna hear some great dialogue you must see this
