Sequel to the classic sitcom set 40 years on from the original series. Nigel Norman Fletcher, grandson of Norman Stanley Fletcher, is sentenced to 5 years in prison for cyber-crimes and gets into more trouble once inside.
Nigel Fletcher is a sharp-witted chancer with no respect for authority. Just like his grandad Norman. Now, nearly 40 years after Norman served time, Nigel is following in his grandad's footsteps. By heading straight into a prison cell.
Baz is one of Britain's new bicycle police, a figure of fun.Â But soon he will turn from cycle cop to psycho-path.Â As riots break out in London, a head injury skews Baz into a vigilante, offering criminals the choice of arrest or death. Baz sees his campaign as lawful killing. Lowlifes who are too stunned, confused, or drunk to argue when he politely asks, "May I kill you?" are merrily dispatched. All filmed on the helmet-cam and posted on social networks!Â Using the alter ego @N4cethelaw, Baz acquires thousands more fans with each killing, dispensing justice to scumbags, cleaning up society. In a sudden reversal, Baz is captured by an enraged relative of one of his presumed "kills", and faces slaughter or -Â even worse - exposure.Written by
Absolutely dark, twisted and fundamentally brilliant!
I'd like to be able to say something bad about this movie, but I can't. I tried hard to find something about it that irked me, something that bothered me about the acting or the direction, but I cannot think of one thing. In fact, I watched it a second time, just before writing this to see if there was anything that I didn't like. Alas, I could not.
A brilliant set up, rather tenuous contributor to the cause of the 'issue' but even that was well thought out. It could have been one of those robocop plot lines where a catastrophic incident plays into the derived condition, but even that left me thinking; it could be that simple.
The best part of this movie is the straight faced Kevin Bishop really making you feel you can relate to his initial frustrations. His personal life overlaps with his professional life and sets him spiraling into the dark world that is the home of the vigilante.
Of all the movies that I should have seen (or been aware of) at the time of release, this is currently top. As I said before, I can't fault the movie but I would fault the lack of marketing or buzz about it. It is one of those movies that should have been in the limelight immediately it was released but if it was, I certainly didn't hear about it.
Great movie, not recommended for anyone who doesn't like a sinister black thriller/comedy that leaves you with a grin and a "how could you follow that" impression.
