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!

Meadows Classic..one to watch again and againBy morphix (30 reviews) , 24 Dec 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI've watched this film at least 20 times and it never loses its appeal. It's so incredibly well made for a low budget film and the realism of the characters and acting just draws you into the story.. Paddy Considine is just outstanding as Richard, the cool calm and calculated ex-soldier who takes on the gang of bad guys and slays them one by one.. there's something mesmerizing about his character and how he delivers his lines..often without speaking..just a look and 'mmm'. *spoiler alert*..... when you first watch the film you just assume that his brother Andrew is still alive and with him as he's there all the way through the film by his side..but it's only at the end you realise he's dead and you're left wondering...was Andrew imagined, or has Richard's mind become unbalanced from his war experiences?
Brill (and filmed where we live!!!)By RachelsTrio (2 reviews) , 14 Dec 2012Very watchable and all the better as it was filmed around Matlock and South Darley!! Didn't know this until we watched it and now I am off to tell my friends about it!
Epic until the end!By DannyKerr92 (1 review) from Plymouth , 13 Dec 2012Hated the ending personally, stupid way to finish it. But the rest of the movie was brilliant, very exciting, emotional and well written. Worth a watch.
