When local London gangster and ex-boxer Tom Sheridan (Ian Pirie, Da Vinci's Demons) agrees to hire his strip club out to lifelong friend and colleague Ian Levine (Michael Mckell, Essex Boys) he soon discovers the private party involves something so atrocious and unspeakable that it sparks a bloody feud between the two old friends and their foot soldiers in a story of morality, loyalty and betrayal.

TOTAL FILM: ★★★★

 

"Drugs, booze, paedophilia, sweary guys with Cockney accents, wall-to-wall in-year-face violence... yeah, we’re back in the well-worn stomping-ground of the Brit crime flick.

But at least writer/director Peter Stylianou pulls a few variations – not least an intricate pattern of flash-forwards and flashbacks that keep you busy working out what’s going on.

Gritty performances help too – notable Kris Johnson as the nastiest of the heavies, and coolly sardonic crime boss Michael McKell.

It’s a promising feature debut for Stylianou."


ZOO MAGAZINE: ★★★★


"What this lacks in big budgets it more than makes up for in ballsy British talent. With incredible performances from rising stars like Kris Johnson, this violent British-crime flick will have you hooked from start to finish."


VIRGIN FILMS ★★★

 

"There's more to this British gangland drama than the usual flow of clichés, swears and geezering. First time director Pete Stylianou and his solid cast show hints of talent which could come to fruition in a future project."
