Customer Review

on 19 May 2011
I'm all for Flipside dipping into genre films but surely they could have come up with something a bit better than this convoluted, poorly acted Brit gangster caper. (One of Walkers horrors would be far more welcome - House of Whipcord please!) Irritations abound - the fakest looking blood I've ever seen, the wimpiest hardman hero I've ever come across, a plot that is as complex as it is tedious, the same incident (person leaves premises, person is attacked) repeated ad nauseum. The frustrating thing is the picture looks incredible - to think we don't have The Devils, Citizen Kane or Blue Velvet on blu ray, but we've got Man of Violence looking absolutely pristine. This quality at least gives the film watchability - the seedy 70s clubs, pubs and hotel rooms are fascinating to look at. To be honest I gave up on the plot after 40 mins (when the arab business begins) and spent the rest of the film gazing at the decor and waiting for the next bit of fleeting nudity - I really need to get out more. For Flipside completests only.
