A good script is a vital ingredient for any successful movie. Better luck

Rating: 4/10

Wow! So here it is. A recipe for a British gangster film: Firstly you will need a script that has several male characters giving it large in fancy motors, sniffing charlie, rumping brasses, beating their chests and 'effin and blinding' in every sentence they utter for no apparent reason other than it makes them look hard. NOTE: Do not get weighed down with a feasible plot! Gangsters don't need an excuse to act like morons. Voila! Easy ennit! Erm...no actually it isn't. I bought this film 'On Demand' because I like to support 'British' as much as possible. I wanted to like it 'I really did'. I am a fan of Leo Gregory's work, but for me he failed to give the character any depth, but I'll excuse that cos it could be script related. I didn't really give a toss for him in this. As for Phil Davies....'Oh Dear'. Woeful. Every male character in this film seemed to be the same. I read up on this and I know producer Robert Fucilla created this film to give himself a platform as an actor and to be fair to him, he's performance 'for an untrained actor' wasn't bad. At least he didn't over act (unlike Harvey from So Solid) which is usually the faux pas of novice actors. I admire Fucilla for putting his money where his mouth is 'which is another reason I wanted to like this film', but sorry it was pretty poor. It's a nice position to be in for an actor 'being able to finance your own film', but you still need to focus on the product. A good script is a vital ingredient for any successful movie. Better luck next time chaps!
