    Reminded me a bit of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. A debt to the mob, a botched robbery and everything that could go wrong does. Crime drama and comedy in one. Brendan Fraser is under rated as an actor. I love him. Very authentic in what he does. Colm Meaney as always is an absolute treat as the lead detective charged with sorting everything out. Worth the watch for sure. Can't speak to the authenticity of the accents. There are a couple unexpected reveals and twists that keep it interesting. The music included was wonderful. I rated this 8 of 10 - feel it is not being given a fair shot. I don't know why the title of Stand Off was used in the US as opposed to "Whole Lotta Soul" (which I like better). I watched this via On Demand Comcast/Xfinity.
