So bad...it's bad

I saw this film at Frightfest 2010 in London and rather embarrassingly I was sitting in the same row as the director and some of the stars. I say embarrassing as there are quite a lot of laughs in this film, but most are unintentional. Small things like a firedoor sign (clearly filmed in a hotel rather than a country house) to a suitcase 'full' of money that appears to have about £200 at most in it.

Unfortunately it's not just the small things that are laughable in this film. The characters are stereotypical (bumbling police, foul mouthed wisecracking boss, hit-man with a heart), the dialogue is trying to be genuine/gritty whilst also amusing and fails with both, and there are some glaring plot holes. There are several scenes that are way too long and talky whilst the music booms over the top trying to add gravitas to characters going over the same points again and again.

The acting isn't too bad on the whole, the major characters are a gang boss, his wife and her lover who's also a hit-man for said boss. The boss puts in a decent performance that owes a lot to Ben Kinglsey in 'Sexy Beast' and Vinnie Jones from Guy Ritchie films, that said he clearly had fun with it and that comes across. The Wife is a Czech actress who's main functions are to walk around pouting and having some rough and tumble with various protagonists both of which she does fine. The hit-man performance is very strange though. Ed Hogg seems to go from maniacal to breaking down crying in every scene in the most uneven performance I've ever seen. Ed is the only actor I recognised from another film having seen 'Bunny and the Bull' in which I thought he was very good, which just makes his performance even more confusing and ultimate I just think he was miscast also being too slight and having too weak a voice for the role.

In the end the film wants to be a cross between a Guy Ritchie film, Severance and Sexy Beast but fails to be as fun or interesting as any of them. I doubt there will be any major release of this film, but there are laughs to be had (however unintentional) but I certainly wouldn't pay for them!

A Dog Alright, as in a bunch of "Beeches!"

This was one of the worst movies I've seen in ages. The gangsters were a bunch of weak, school yard knuckleheads. Furthermore, they treated gorgeous women very severely in a number of scenes.

I won't be able to tell you how it ended because I turned it off after about five or ten minutes when the knot headed moron who supposedly was a tough guy gangster began beating his gorgeous wife on the arm or hand, I couldn't tell with a meat hammer because she went around on him. No wonder. Of course it's only a movie. It's just a really, really bad movie. Don't waste your money.

Hold it. Or was it propaganda? People shouldn't have to pay for propaganda.

Freedom means different things to different people.

Criss cross, and a lot of extra double crosses, make a mixed up story come out bloody in the end. Great cast of the usual UK suspects make up a very normal seeming story that just feels like a normal every day story presented in mixed order Pulp Fiction style, but then it goes, and bends over backwards to flip the script, and take you completely off guard. Every time you think you have this movie figured out, they change the plot again, by adding a new flashback, or even more fun have someone react in a totally unexpected manor. I really ended up Enjoying this movie, and I think the big thing that made it work was the fact that this tougher than stone ex-con kingpin, has never actually killed anyone, and goes so far out of his way to keep that one thing even though he is so irreproachably evil, and a complete psychopath, so it should not matter to him, only it really does. I would recommend this for action/thriller fans who like a little blood in their tea. Graphic, and gory, with extreme violence toward both men, and women, but it all pays off in the end.
