Standard gangster film - Villain review by HM

Spoiler Alert
14/09/2020

Out of prison after a 10 year stretch our anti-hero finds his brother in a tangled web of debt putting their family pub in danger of going out of business. So, our boy takes on local hoodlums. An attempt is made to show him as a potential good family man having turned over a new leaf. Needless to say it all goes wrong. A well trodden plot path doesn't offer anything new, but it is a fairly entertaining film with a quick pace, slowing occasionally for 'family moments'.

Nothing new - Villain review by JW

Spoiler Alert
23/11/2020

Not sure why this was on my list, maybe because I've always quite enjoyed Craig Fairbrass as a screen presence. But this is a cliché ridden unimaginative affair, with cartoonish characters and a predictable plot.

Also there's zero extras on the DVD, and not even subtitles, so I couldn't recommend it as a rental. Try Hyena instead if you haven't seen it, set in a similar world but far far superior.
