I’m on a bit of a mini-goal to watch all the London gangster flicks I can, so in addition to having Ben Drew in this (BECAUSE I LOVE HIM), I had to check it out. It’s good. Familiar glossy-blue-London-visuals, certainly, and it drags in chunks (especially the action sequences, bizarrely), but overall it worked for me. Ray WInstone is, of course, brilliant, and Drew brings a terrifically strong supporting performance that matches Winstone. Fundamentally, the film suffers from a surplus of characters (DCI Frank Haskins and Alan Ford in particular blend together as far as function) - probably a holdover from it being a TV series - and this makes it difficult to track, but Winstone and Drew as well as Hayley Atwell and the briefly popping up Allen Leech are so engaging that it wasn’t a waste of time.
