| 2.5?? I don't think so...
It's clear that not many people have rated this film, but if you've come here to check it's score first before viewing, then don't be put off by the grade on here - as after watching this film, it doesn't seem right at all, and I'm glad I decided to ignore it.

Far from a classic, but entertaining all the same, this British drama, is the tale of a professional footballer on the way up, who gets sidelined with an injury, and immediately dropped from his team. With no income, he must find a way to bring some money in, as he has a child on the way, and a loving partner to support. Mishaps occur, as desperate measures lead to desperate things, and our lead will find himself caught up in the wrong crowd, as everything he stands for will now be put to test, along with his morals, well being, and safety.

The acting seems very natural, in the sense that the people act how you'd expect people in daily life to act - not at all over the top, and this does well in making the people seem 'real'.

The visual quality is up to scratch, and some nice shots are used.

My only complaint is there are a few clichés in the plot that may make you sigh, but if you can forgive them, and you're fan of British film, you may enjoy it for what it is.

Certainly not the best film I've ever seen, but nowhere near the worst, but definitely worth a look on a quiet night.

6/10
