Pusher (2012). Pusher: Directed by Luis Prieto. With Richard Coyle, Bronson Webb, Agyness Deyn, Mem Ferda. In London, a street dealer's life spins out of control over the course of one week after he borrows money from his supplier on what's supposed to be a sure thing.

“The original version of Pusher from Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn was an excellent crime-thriller with a stand-out performance from Kim Bodnia. This British remake stars Richard Coyle in the central role. Its narrative is really very similar to the original. It means that if you know the original then there arenu0026#39;t really too many surprises here. Nevertheless, this is a remake put together with some energy and style. And Coyle is very good in the central role.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story like before depicts the downfall of a pusher who loses a kilo of cocaine worth £55,000 when he is busted. Milo the Mediterranean gangster who supplied him with the gear demands his money back within two days. This leads to an escalation of violence.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eZlatko Buric reprises his role of Milo the crime boss, which he memorably played in the original. Once again he is a scene stealer throughout. Although itu0026#39;s basically Richard Coyleu0026#39;s movie, he is in more or less every scene, and he propels the narrative. Itu0026#39;s a story that has a real inertia. Itu0026#39;s fast paced and has real energy. Itu0026#39;s helped hugely here by the soundtrack by Orbital. Even when these guys were in their heyday in the 90u0026#39;s their music always had a film score feel to it, so itu0026#39;s no surprise that their music here fits the film so well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDirector Luis Prieto holds everything together well and ensures that there is a stylish look to go along with the grit. Although, I wouldnu0026#39;t say that this is an improvement on the original. Itu0026#39;s just too similar. But on its own terms it is a good, energetic crime-thriller with some great performances.”
