Dir: Liam Galvin, 2016
Who told football hooligans they can act? Well, obviously Liam Galvin, the director of this atrocious piece of crap.
Galvin’s other claim to fame is the “classic” crime flick “Killer Bitch”, a film made famous by the tabloids for reporting it’s graphic scenes of sex and violence none of which actually appear.
The film had promise but the lack of talent in every department ruined it.
The premise is very simple; an anonymous gang of vigilantes take matters into their own hands aided by an MP. A female reporter is following the gangs activities when her ex husband is attacked and teenage daughter is raped and murdered by a serial paedophile turning her into judge, jury and executioner.
Yvette Rowland plays the reporter who is only capable of crying unconvincingly. The only talent she has is to look pretty. She certainly can’t act. Jess Conrad seems to think he’s still in Jim Davidson’s “Sinderella” going by his pantomime performance.
The remaining cast are made up of ex criminals and footie yobs such as Dave Courtney and Cass Pennant.
Trying to inject some respectability into the film Lysette Anthony is in it for the whole of …ooh…what? Five minutes?
Rounding out the cast is rent-a-plank Leslie Grantham (yes, he of Dirty Den and murderer of German taxi drivers fame) who inexplicably disappears from the proceedings with no mention of where he’s gone.
It’s unintentionally funny watching not-really-hard men trying to be hard men such as Chris Ellison off “The Bill”.
Seriously, give this one a miss. It won’t quench your action thirst. If you want a proper vigilante film, done the right way, go and watch Death Wish II.
