“Maybe 3 is a little generous, itu0026#39;s a surprise to me that this movie has been so favourably reviewed by some. The director seems mighty uncertain about how to portray the material and ends up with somewhat of a half-baked mess. The humour and straight-to-camera monologues make you cringe, the dialogue if often shouted and is laden with swearing to try and make it all seem u0026#39;streetu0026#39;. Millau0026#39;s performance is good at times but often desperately overplayed, Angus Macfadyen as Big Al gives a crude over-bearing performance with a rather baffling accent.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you want to see a really realistic film about domestic abuse watch Nil By Mouth and appreciate Ray Winstones raw multi-layered performance, if you want a steamy revenge thriller ( as this tries to be later in the narrative ) pick one out of a guide because,chances are, itu0026#39;ll entertain you better than this. Kudos to Stephen Dorff and Sara Strange who actually manage to inject some humanity into their underwritten roles.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSkin fans who like skinny women might disagree but I found the nudity ( and I like nudity in film- sometimes itu0026#39;s the only thing to keep you awake watching a bad movie) gratuitous and unsexy. Itu0026#39;s a bad one, steer clear.”
