as it says on the cover ' one of the best british films in years'By Brian Bennett from London , 21 Dec 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]in fact i think i would probably go as far as saying, this is one of the best films i have seen in years.....full stop. now i understand its not going to be everyones cup of tea, but for those out there who like a great film with some good old fashioned brit-grit watch it! it's one of those films where you dont quite know what to do with yourself after it. i mean i watched this film and thought it was great 3 days after watching it, i thought it was amazing - reason being, i kept on thinking about it, it kept on coming back into my head, i think i was a bit traumatised by it to be honest, but if that isnt the sign of a good film i dont know what is.
full of grit and grim, very good acting, and a bit of humor thrown in....watch this!

A must!By a customer , 09 Oct 2013This movie took me completely by surprise; I dont mean the twists in the movie, but the tone and the highs & lows. The film just showcases british acting talent and theres emotional moments that hit you even harder than some of the more violent scenes. Like most 'twist' movies this can only be watched once to take on the full power of the movie, but even on a second viewing you take it all in on a different level. This is a dark movie, very violent but with some of the best comedy moments and emotional scenes Ive ever seen in a movie - the acting talent is undeniable! A bucket list movie for sure.
essential watching..By steveLucas (4 reviews) , 29 Sep 2013In a nutshell, an essential must watch film. Paddy Considine is a very underated actor and his acting in this sometimes disturbing and violent film is superb. Do yourself a favour and watch this!!

One film to watch before you die.By Smidster (1 review) , 14 Sep 2013This is a classic, a work of simplicity, proving real talent lies in people not pounds and pence. Immersive and terrifying. Showing us what we are capable of when pushed to the limit. This film properly addresses what goes around, comes around, revenge. Do we agree with revenge, well it's very difficult not to side with Paddy Considine's character. Watch it.
Thoroughly good tale - beats 'This is England' by a country mile.By Swanseaoioi (2 reviews) , 13 Sep 2013Never even noticed that this film had been made. Takes the atmosphere of a spaghetti western in a modern feel with the usual wild west sense of vengeance. Totally enjoyed it - a really good story to enjoy with just the right music to add to an intense atmosphere.
The shoes that no man would want to wearBy Llew (7 reviews) from London , 13 Sep 2013The first Shane Meadows film I ever saw, and one of the most powerful performances I've seen in that of Paddy Considine, although to be fair, his character's status relies heavily on the reaction of those he comes across, and all the actors perform admirably. The first meeting between the 'dead man' and Gary Stretch's villain is hair-raising in its sense of menace without anything really happening. Outstanding. I've seen this film maybe ten times already and I still want to see it again, it's that good.
