Just Loved It
To be honest, I reckon this knocks spots off any Guy Richie gangland type film. This is British Cinema at it’s best and I was left wanting the film to just go on longer. The way it finishes with a blast of Bob Relf’s northern soul number Blowing my Mind to Pieces just left you feeling excited about what had gone before. Yes it is brutal in places, funny too, as well as genuinely scary, not scary in the horror film type way but in the scared for the main characters. Brilliantly acted, the soundtrack of decent soul, Gwen Guthrie’s Keep the Fire’s Burning, Chic’s Everybody Dance and even Willie Tee’s One Way Street and the fact I found myself caring about the characters kept me hooked on the film right from the beginning. I can’t recommend this film enough if you like a good hard film, well constructed with plenty of nostalgia thrown in.
Average British Film
Well what can you say about this film other than six of one and half a dozen of the other. With regards to the good, acting was good, story was good, music was good. The bad points were very sloppy stupid mistakes, The film never at all felt like the 80’s it was sometimes hard to get the era. At one point the bouncer even says lets get away from the camera’s, there were no camera’s back then. The clothes felt mismatched the dancing in the club didn’t look right. If you want a lesson on how to recreate the 80’s look at “This is England”. There were flaws in the ideology of the film and at the end you were left a little flat. Ideolgies of being passive and peaceful contradicted by violent behaviour. That does happen and people are like that but it just didn’t work here. Parts of the film seemed real and the behaviour of characters was justified and other parts you were just left in disbelief at certain actions. Whatever this film was trying to achieve it failed and just became a testosterone battle of wills. OK this was the 80’s people were angry people fought and these things did happen but if you are going to have that as a feature then at least do it properly, like The Firm for example. An Average 5 for me, this could have been a good film but production let it down.
