Excellent performance by all
4 August 2017 | by steeevojSee all my reviews

Excellent gritty thriller! London multi-cultural mix with some superb acting and characterisations. I really liked Riz Ahmed in Four Lions & Rogue One. It was great to see him as lead and it is always nice to see Billie Piper :) Watch this, you won't regret it. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.
