Gritty, disturbing and ultimately powerful revenge thriller that also conveys a pitch black sense of humour. A raw and uncompromising slasher movie with highly intellectual overtones that has realistic characters, plausible dialogue and a thoughtful moralistic tone on the themes of retribution and exploitation. A truly astonishing turn by Paddy Considine helps to cement the reputation of Director Shane Meadows as one of the best in the business.

This bleak tale of revenge set in a small English town sees Paddy Considine leaving the army and returning home to extract brutal revenge on a group of small time drug dealers who abused his retarded younger brother while he was away. This is an unusual revenge thriller as it often looks more like a slasher flick; Considine is obviously an unstable murderer who has been trained to kill and he systematically executes each of his victims in a very horror film style way. Except in this case his victims are a bunch of unsympathetic scum bags who you can't help feeling probably deserve their fate. In this way the film throws up many mixed emotions as you're never quite sure who you are supposed to be rooting for!
