first off i have to say, the marketing was very misleading for this film, making it seem like another football factory/the business type film, when its far from that and to top it off they then compare it to pulp fiction why? It has no comparisons whatsoever to pulp, in fact its nowhere near any of the 3 films mentioned and doesnt even come close!!! What i would say its a very well made, slow burner, ensemble method piece. With a great cast, and good acting from all involved, mainly dyer and hassan, who show they have a good acting range for a change, instead of there usual typecast hard geezer feck this feck that roles. which lets be honest tends to get a little boring, since its usually the same old same old from both, but both are great in this for acting reasons, and deserved to be applauded, as do the other actors, and if like me, you want to see dyer and hassan do something different for a change, i.e act a bit, aswell as a good redemption type storyline, then purchase this its cheaper than a rental to buy, and will leave you thinking why doesnt the leads get better acting gigs cause they can act!!!.
