It's not a gangster film, nor an action film, nor a revenge film. It covers a father's search for the truth of his daughter's death and is told in a sort of photo-montage, cut-up style, with abrupt time shifts, flashbacks and flash forwards, together with introspective moments.
Terence Stamp plays a grizzled Cockney career criminal who has spent much of his life in prison, thus losing touch with his daughter. He comes to LA to avenge her death but spends much of the time thinking about their limited time together and what might have been. The flashbacks to a happier time are well done, using clips from the Ken Loach film 'Poor Cow' which starred a young Terence Stamp and Carol White. 3/5 stars.
