Really need subtitles, couldn't understand half of the dialogue because they were mumbling half the bloody time.
Cheesy but harrowing and English.
Amazing acting by Paddy Considine. From the moment he has a go at one of the locals at the pub early on, you know this guy is not going to be messed with. Very dark and also gloomy, not just in tone, but in the almost oppresive visuals of constant drizzle and English suburbia. If you like 'revenge' movies where people who did something terrible get their comeuppance, put this at the top of your list.
Man returns home to take revenge on a group of drug dealers who tormented his intellectually disabled brother. He proceeds to dispatch the members is various grisly ways.
That's pretty much the whole plot. Artlessly made, poorly acted, a crude, pointless revenge fable. A complete waste of time, and a real disappointment from Meadows.
Once again Shane Meadows captures the rawness of life in the Midlands. Tension underscores every scene in this tragic tale of revenge. Schadenfreude is difficult to resist especially when the perpetrators are put through a drug induced hell before despatching. Gripping stuff!
A true nasty this one. This is real violence and rather disturbing little film for those that like quircky englih black comedy and english drama at its most darkest, this is the film for you. Shane Meadows is someone to watch in future
Chosen by recommendation of a friend, this has a lot going for it, including the start point - when the brother returns to his village to discover the mistreatment of his brother. Saves a lot of time with flash-backs at appropriate moments. Given the number of Considines appearing in the cast/crew, I suspect this was a pert project of the star, but strong, nonetheless.
Great story on a brother's quest for revenge for his dead brother.
Need to watch violence and language
Very gruesome story of revenge dark and somewhat depressing.
this movie is good esspecially if you like a twist in movies.a bit of a strange movie though
Hmm...a good movie in theory. Worth watching but you have to pay attention to get the plot
loved it, paddy c is tops
It was ok. Good in some ways but could have been better.
A dark dark movie! It features a bleak view of modern lower-class english provincial life, combined with vicious violence and occasional ridiculous humour. Not to be missed if you like unconventional cinema.
