Storyline

This anarchic thriller presents a crazy, off-kilter London of action, comedy and true love. Eddie, Paul and Katharine are cool, carefree characters in a world of absolute freedoms: freedom to steal, freedom to fire a gun, freedom to kill, and freedom to fall in love. And freedom never to be hurt--at least not seriously. Only the bad guys die. Sam Rockwell and Ben Schwartz play two London-bound buddies whose outrageous antics never have serious consequences. They always wriggle out of danger, with a wisecrack, a weapon and a smile. Eddie and Paul are two innocents abroad, except they're not innocent at all. They're low-level wise guys who never really have a grip on anything. The controlling intelligence in the story is Phoebe Fox's insecure lawyer, Katherine. She's always one step ahead of the game - but is she ready to fall in love? Written by tommy@dinolaine.com

Quirky, off-beat, enjoyable
29 August 2018 | by paulharvey-70154See all my reviews

Despite negative reviews, I found this very enjoyable. The London/cockney setting is excellent and may well appeal to an American audience unaware of this aspect of British society and watching Rockwell trying to speak cockney is very amusing. The characters are all very quirky with their own little foibles, the plot, although a little far fetched, moves along at a good pace. Nice little touches from known actors, especially Phoebe Fox as the somewhat corrupt lawyer and Amanda Donohoe as the foul-mouthed pub landlady as well as the bad guy telling the hit team what he is going to do to them at the end made this a worthwhile journey. Although it is not laugh out loud funny, it is rather subtle in its approach and Rockwell is just Rockwell. Recommended with a bucket of popcorn and some friends and don't believe what they say.
