All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Realist in tone, the film lacks much imagination and trundles along too predictably for comfort.

February 3, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Too stupid to be abominable, but only just.

February 3, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A waste of a decent cast.

This might be uneven, but it's well filmed, with a clutch of affecting scenes - a more thoughtful affair than your average Brit fight flick.

A cut above recent British low-life crime pictures...

It isn't the smoothest transition but strong performances from Stephen Graham and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje keep the idea afloat.
