That might sound FACEtious however, to some extent Carlyle plays a
similar sort of character who is unable to hold down a regular job.
(Carlyle always has a look of total anxiety, as if he just opened up a
tax audit it from the Inland Revenue). He is believable as Ray a gun
welding crook , not a phyco path, but a former lefty who got fed up
supporting fringe left-wing causes with nothing to show for it. He
decides to earn a living the old fashioned way 'by stealing it'! Ray
struggles to balance a relationship with his mother, girlfriend as well
as being troubled by his conscience about what he does. He does not
particularly enjoy doing what he does and often wonders if it's worth
it baring in mind he has done time in prison.
It has the typical big robbery near the beginning where they have just
two minutes to get in and out of the security complex, the obligatory
'have a go hero' guard who gets pistol whipped and then the escape.
Much to the despair of the gang although they get a reasonable amount
of cash by the time they take out expenses and split it 5 ways there
not a lot to show for it. Was their poultry whack worth the risk for a
15 year stretch?
To make matters worse and more complicated the tables are turned when
the money is actually stolen from the gang, presumably by somebody who
knows the routine and the gangs movements. Everybody suspects everybody
else and Ray desperately tries to hold the gang together despite finger
pointing, blame as well as trying to evade the police who are on to
them. The next part of the film unfolds around betrayal, double
crossing, desperation, evading capture and greed.
The cast is good, Ray Winston does his usual, Damien Albarn tries to
look tough, the weaselly nutter played by Philip Davis is entertaining
and Steve Waddington plays a heavy that loves comics and is totally
dependent on Ray for guidance . It's also good to see British veteran
character Peter Vaughan no stranger to playing a crook , plus longtime
downtrodden Brookside housewife Sue Johnson still rallying to left wing
cause as Rays weary but devoted mum.
Apart from the robbery there is a couple of big shoot outs, tension, a
mystery, treachery and a couple of odd twists which keep up your
interest. The conclusion of the movie is probably well balanced in the
end most of the unlikable characters get what's coming to them! Despite
possible flaws the cast certainly hold the movie together and it's well
worth a watch!
(Note: the greasy Irish junkie at the beginning was played by none
other Gerry Conlon former Guildford bombing suspect whose conviction
was quashed a number of years ago.)
