Benjamin (Stephen Graham) grew up on the mean streets of London, and
was bullied for his Jewish faith. Against the wishes of his Orthodox
father, he took up boxing to learn to defend himself and in his adult
years finds himself taking part in bare knuckle fighting jobs on the
side to bring in a bit of extra cash to help wife Alice (Rebecca
Callard) and young son. Benjamin is controlled by Shannon (Michael
Smiley), a local hood who talks him into doing a spot of arson, which
ends in him being sent to prison for manslaughter. Upon his release, he
finds his local community more under Shannon's grip than ever, and life
is about to get even more tough.
Serving as an extension of a short film he made just a few years ago,
director David Leon now offers this expurgated version that serves as
his feature length debut. It still, however, feels very much like a
student offering, in its presentation and delivery. It's obviously been
made on a very low budget, and while this doesn't detract from it in
itself, it's the quality of the material that lets it down.
Reverting to his Snatch performance, here Stephen Graham once again
dons a cockney accent, and once again pulls it off quite well. He
certainly can't be faulted for trying to inject some light into this,
as can't co star Smiley, but while it drips in a moody, drowned out,
lingering style that is quite impressive, the same can't be said for
the substance, with nothing underneath to really make you feel for the
characters or galvanised by their plight.
There's some meaty themes to explore, some great casting and enormous
potential all round, but somehow it all just misfires and isn't the sum
of its parts. **
