The fourth feature from Shane Meadows (This Is England, A Room for Romeo Brass), one of the UK's most exciting directors, Dead Man's Shoes is a gritty yet fiercely moral tale of gangland retribution.

Two brothers return to the hometown they left eight years earlier, to find it still run by the same gang of small-time drug dealers and petty thugs. Their purpose, it soon becomes clear, is not reunion, but revenge - a quest of particular significance for Richard (Paddy Considine - Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum), the leader of the two, whose obsessive desire to even the score will lead them into dangerous territory.

Evoking Get Carter in its avenging brother scenario and featuring an outstanding central performance from Considine (not to mention a cracking score featuring Bonnie Prince Billy and Aphex Twin), Dead Man's Shoes is Meadows' finest film to date.

 Excellent film

I believe this to be Shane Meadows' best film by some distance.
Yes, This Is England is good, but I think it loses it's way half way through.
This, on the other hand is gripping all the way through.
It has humour as well as quite explicit violence, but it's the story that really gets you.
There is a twist at the end, which you will possibly see coming, but this won't ruin the film for you if you do.
A high quality British film made with a small budget. Brilliant

Awesome revenge movie. Paddy Consandine is terrifying.
some people have an issue with the violence and the vigilante element, but that does'nt bother me as i a m on the main charcters side. Shane Meadows seems to be a brilliant director, already seen the Fanatstic "A Room for Romeo Brass" and very much looking forward to "This is England"

 Great movie

I saw this on DVD, so cant comment on the Blu-Ray transfer/extras, but can recommend it wholeheartedly to fans of British cinema or fans of gritty gangster movies. Paddy Considine is superb as the vigilante brother out for revenge, but the ending is implaysible, as though Meadows ran out of ideas. Well worth a watch though, as all the performances are top drawer.
