Plagiarism at its best!By onion (345 reviews) from leeds , 08 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Okay, there are a lot of things about this film that arent all that great (a poor mans Jason Statham? Tell me you don't see it!). But there is some really good stuff too.
Having said all that, I wanna be nice anyway because a goodfriend of mine recommended this film to me (hey becks) and I can see why she likes it. I think I do too.
Anyway, yes the first hour seems almost like an amalgamation of Lockstock (complete with dodgy freeze frame narration), Hellraiser twos plot and Silent Hill style looks, and yes, the acting is a little poor (surely us Brits are better than this). But f#ck it! Its a good laugh!
And the final act (or twist!) will really change your mind about the whole film! If only it couldve been more like that all the way through!
But I guess that was the point.
Give it a chance.

Pointless & AnnoyingBy Buddhafella (51 reviews) from Oldbury , 31 Aug 2009Of the 20 minutes I watched of this steaming pile of excrement, there was not one moment I enjoyed. The direction was mindless and the narrative was pointless. This is written by someone who thinks that using the words f**k and c**t every few seconds makes it edgy and out-there. It doesn't, it just means you don't know how to write. The acting was dire in the extreme and the stop-start camera action has been done to death by every first time director who didn't know what they were doing and remembers Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells with affection. Waste of time.
