Choppy. - River Beat review by NC

Spoiler Alert

The dialogue is dire. The performers do enough - just. Its saving grace is a reasonable story played at a ripping pace. At just over an hour it shouldn't sag, and once the clumsy introductions to the characters is done, you'll probably stay for the ride, albeit cringing every few minutes at the lines. Locations, around the docks of London, also lift it away from the run-of-the-mill. Quite good, nothing more.
