What kills this film is the absolutely diabolical script, which is full of endless expletives and no kind of with at all. But before long, the fast paced Joshua Osei and Scott Peden do well with very under written roles to make their mark and the likes of solid actors Nabil Elouahabi and Jasper Britton add strong credibility to their characters. It does not suffer the same shocking production values as some really budget gangster films. Armed robber and career criminal Jack Cregan seeks to discover the truth behind his father’s murder and his stolen heist money and in doing so puts his life in danger.
Leech is good but the actor looks totally different in almost every way which is a bit frustrating at times.
