| brutal mob flick with a horror twist
To be honest I never heard of this director Ben Wheatley, he even wrote the script of this weird tale. It was rated as horror but you're an hour into the movie and I thought well, where's the horror. It do contain some brutality and gory moments but I was used to that in other UK flicks about the mob. But the final part of this flick makes a 180° shift towards horror. I liked it a lot but maybe my only negativity is that they ripped off the ending of A Serbian Film. Maybe it's a coincidence or maybe it was a rip off, who will tell. Nevertheless I liked this a lot.

I liked it because we go deep into the characters without boredom. By doing so you need good actors and they all did extremely well. For horror geeks some faces will be recognized like MyAnna Buring from The Descent. Or Neil Maskell from the underrated Doghouse. I won't go deeper into the thespians, big thumbs up to all, very well casted.

You're in this flick from the first shot because it starts immediately, no nice shots from the country or whatsoever. It becomes clear that things aren't what they seem and slowly the two friends are on a new mission. But if you watch closely then you will see that terror comes from closer friends that they could guess. As I said, the first part takes us into their assassin mission which is filmed rather brutal and I said it even gory, the hammer scene will again be offending some people, not for the squeamish. Once Gal (Michael Smiley) goes berserk on a mission it's again not for the faint-hearted. Excellent done by Michael.

Indeed a nasty thriller with a horror twist towards the end. be sure to put it on the view list.
