This film is a perfect example of what happens when a deluded collective of people get together and think because they have seen a lot of gangster films , that they decide on a whim...... " Oh, I'll knock up a screenplay - get it done and filmed and out there ". Without learning any craft. Writing, film-making or acting - whatsoever.
So in this respect - we have a film based on an idea, not a story.
I understand from reading the boards that this was made without a budget. That is fair enough - but this is not the point . There is absolutely no excuse for this. It's the content which is the issue here.
It lacks story. It lacks structure. It lacks emotion. It's just an awful clichéd montage of clips.
I had to turn it off. I could not connect with a single character, the only thing I was compelled to do was switch it off.
I feel utterly duped and angry that I spent my hard earned money on this. Furious in fact - My teenage son begged me to buy it from the supermarket - duped into buying it as It did have an eye catching cover, and my son is a fan of the genre.
Save your money. Avoid at all costs. Don't be fooled like me.
I also understand that the producers are very precious about their film, ( I have just been skim reading the reviews etc here. ) That is understandable. But as a Filmmaker you have a responsibility surely to produce credible work for your intended audience???
I created an IMDb account and have written this review as I could not get a refund - and wish to save someone else the utter frustration I have had to endure.
This is an embarrassment and and insult to British filmmaking.
