Time Out says
Unfortunately Bennett’s direction doesn’t do his cast justice: he shoots the entire film in flat, unengaging tones. It doesn’t help that the script, despite a few well-judged, surprising U-turns, remains obvious, aiming for originality in its back-and-forth flashback structure but eventually just feeling confused.
Glenister is always value for money, and Simm makes for a likeably cheeky foil– their scenes together are the highlights of the film. But overall this is just another Brit crime flick: entertaining enough, but tragically unambitious.
