Storyline
Set in the Thatcher era with the cool sounds of the 80's, THE BUSINESS is an action packed gangster flick set in Spain's sun drenched Costa Del crime. Frankie (Danny Dyer), is on the run from the high-rise's of South London to a new life in Malaga with nothing but a tin stuffed full of cash. Having no idea that this delivery of cash to super-suave playboy and ex-con, Charlie (Tamer Hassan), will change his life forever, he soon becomes one of the gang, and finds himself drawn into a flamboyant and violent world of organized crime.

User Review

80s set gangster film with top soundtrack

Rating: 7/10


I completely disagree with the vast majority of reviewers so far, this
was a great film. Granted, it may be similar to other films of its
genre, but the 80s settings were meticulous in my view. Spanish Guardia
Civil with their feared (now banned) tri-corn hats, 80s cars,
definitely NOT the modern Malaga airport, and the fashions and language
used.

I left Cineworld feeling exhilarated – great soundtrack and good plot.
I would recommend this film to anybody, Nick Love has done it again
after the superb Football Factory. How can anybody call Danny Dyer
Z-List?? Granted, he may be no Michael Douglas, but just because he is
young, and obviously has a talent for the types of part he tends to
play in movies, does not make him a bad actor at all, in fact, i think
the exact opposite.

I will definitely be pre-ordering the DVD.
