Showing on Netflix, this film has a really good British cast. The acting is, in fact, good and the London looks menacing as an urban dystopia.

However the movie is let down by poor writing, the story is unlikely and lethargic, the characters are poorly developed. There are too many scenes of gunfights that go on for too long, a couple of times I wondered was it even possible to shoot so many bullets in such small spaces before actually hitting anybody?

I wanted this to be a good film but it is a disappointment.
