Cartoon Character Britflick Gangster Movie that Fails to Convince
- The Smoke review by PV
This film is like a cartoon made flesh - we have cartoon baddies and some really off-colour jokes and trite dialogue (though I liked the Cockney crook character actors), plus a totally unbelievable story which seems to reference Shallow Grave in the main character 'finding' a bag stuffed with cash.
Some stereotypical East European pimp plot of more cartoon nonsense, and there are too many convenient coincidences in this movie to make it credible, so straight to video stuff really. Probably a typical fantasy of a 12/13 year old boy.
I also seriously wonder if a man getting, in effect, raped up the rear end with a dildo would be acceptable and funny if a man did that to a woman - so that was annoying gender hypocrisy (though I see the same in most movies now so this is by no means the only offender).
Not sure I believed the hitman plotline or character either.
