"Good men do bad things. Bad men do good things."

The film loses points with me on the basis of Vinnie Jones' character. By all accounts he looks and acts the part of a bruiser, but in the pair of scenes in which he goes against Junior Crawford (Brandon Sklenar), the guy who's visibly about half his size works him over without much trouble. And he's nominally the bodyguard for London mob boss Harris (Malcolm McDowell), who consistently berates the guy for not attending to business where his girlfriend is concerned. What's odd and different about the story is that by the time the principal players get done doing away with each other, the ones left standing to make a quick getaway are a couple of ancillary characters who didn't figure prominently in the initial proceedings. Which is OK I guess because it makes for an unconventional resolution to the picture, about as exciting as Preston Lawford's (Ron Perlman) showdown with Harris, done from a sitting position because let's face it, after all the booze they consumed, they probably couldn't stand up.

Old Vinnie

First, the cast is good for a cheap action B movie. Vinnie, Ron and Malcolm do an acceptable job here. Second, the script itself it's simple but well executed. Last, Vinnie here looks more human than ever. Remembered me sometimes a cheap Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino. So, overall an acceptable B-action movie from the old Vinnie.

Possibly because my expectations were so low...

Possibly because my expectations were so low I liked it more than it deserved, but I don't think so. I like the actors, the story sounded good and the price was right, so I bought for my collection. Happily, I liked it a lot. Why? Well, to begin with, it portrayed several somewhat complex relationships; Neelyn and Fiona, Neelyn and Harris, Harris and Preston, Preston and Milt, Junior and pretty much everyone. Point is, there were many varied and unique character connections. The characters themselves were well fleshed out, most with a back story.

The amount and degree of action was appropriate and entertaining. Killing may have been a bit overdone (a bunch of people killed a bunch of people).

I feel that the production elements like photography, settings, fight choreography, directing, etc. were all above average.

Unlike some other reviewers, I thought the acting was top notch.

Bottom line, give it a chance... you may like it.
