Jack Says (2008) Poster

The film opens with Jack tied to a chair in a warehouse, guarded by heavies. He seems to have evoked the wrath of the Guv'nor, who lectures him about 'losing respect'. A girl called Natalie... See full summary »

OK, let me start by saying, i love gangster flicks and I love gritty thrillers, neither of which this is. The only chance of this being a good movie is for you to suspend belief, imagine the world is like a James Bond set, and think the Scottish are the baddest dudes in Europe.

The acting is not the best I have ever seen and thats OK, there are not many stars in this film, however, the actual footage is unrealistic, from Eric Cantona befriending a Scottish stranger (really the french being generous and buying whiskey?!), to the sudden appearance of a cigarette smoked by the main actor about 30 mins in, in a dead end alley that resembled Brixton rather than France. Oh and see how much is smoked in that five mins of scenery, its a full cigarette when thrown!! This film feels like the scriptwriter wrote down all the things that made a good gangster flick and threw them into a blender, letting them land here, there and everywhere, sadly you cant make a film this easily or I would be the next scorsese to! It's sad in a way, because this had the opportunity to be a trainspotting, it could have worked, if only there had been more thought as to the characters, there were too many 'this will do' in this film, and that totally messed it up! A little more attention to detail would pay off in the long run!
