5.0 out of 5 stars Crime Jealousy & Revenge May 17, 2003
By Amy
Format:VHS Tape
Goldie and David Bowie star in this gritty crime thriller. The film opens with Ray (Andrew Goth) and Terry (Goldie) getting released from jail. The two are cousins, long-time friends, and fellow gang members. Ray wants to go straight, have a family and a real job. Terry wants to get back in the business and does so with a life of crime. He makes a killing selling drugs to school kids, enlarges his already sizeable arsenal, and intimidates all who encroach on his turf, especially a mysterious Chinese gang. During Terry's incarceration, gang matters were left to the button-down super-efficient dealings of Bernie (Bowie); after his release, tensions between the two thugs rapidly build. Seeing Ray's return to the straight life as weakness, the evil jealous Terry kidnaps and tortures Ray's girlfriend. Ray resolves to get revenge and an ultra-violent shoot out soon ensues.The ending shall leave you in suspense......

2.0 out of 5 stars FIRE THE EDITOR!! September 7, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I just may be the biggest Bowiephile ever. I heard about the film from a friend, who hated it. I bought the film on the strength of my interest in all things Bowie. Period. As I watched the first 20-30 minutes of the film, I just knew in my heart that it was going to get better. I guess the joke was on me that fateful day. Not only is the movie confusing of many levels, the story is far from original, none of the characters actually develop, and even the soundtrack is sub-par. In a nutshell: Two brothers are released from prison on the same day, then decide to return to a life of crime. That's it!! That's everything this movie has to offer. Bowie had a great opportunity to take his character of an aging English Ganster to some interesting places. Instead, he nonchalantly meanders through his lines without offering us anything more than a script reading. Also, whoever heard of a hardcore gangster who sews?!!? In short, I can't recommend this film even out of curiosity.

4.0 out of 5 stars gangsta flick for the drum'n'bass massive January 8, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Stylish low budget UK gangsta picture set in Manchester: drum'n'bass and ragga soundtrack with bass at realistic nightclub/car audio volumes (at least on the DVD version). Expect your subwoofer(s) to get a good workout, and things to fall off the walls. Maybe the boy-band-ish dance act is a little cheesy, but the violence and bass make up for it.

While the sound on the DVD is excellent, the video is full-screen (4:3) only, and not very sharp. Some of the text in the credits is nearly illegible. See the forum for this movie at IMDB for a transcription of the soundtrack listing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ruff gangsta bizness January 2, 2003
By subgrav
Format:DVD
This quintessentially British movie will prob. leave many Americans confused... but its a terrific film! Called "Everybody Loves Sunshine" in the rest of the world, Busted tells the tale of two half-brothers who start (or try to) new lives after prison. One returns whole-hog to crime, while the other gets caught up in the Garage-club scene and starting a performance group.
There's a quasi-sexual tension between Goth and Goldie, but nothing overtly obvious... this is really not that kind of movie.
Bowie plays his business-manager villain expertly. Cold, calculated and ruthless. It's brilliant!
US audiences will undountedly find the ruff accents to be difficult at times to understand, but the movie captures the grim reality of UK gang wars very well - gangsta life is not a uniquely American thing, after all!
The soundtrack is brilliant, featuring some really nice Jungle, Garage and Ragga sounds... its too bad that this is not available in the States. :-(
Highly recommended for fans of British criminal movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up for this movie! June 13, 2001
Format:DVD
This is a good movie that held my attention. Andrew Goth caught my eye. He's definitely got it all.....actor, writer, director and good looks. The movie was exciting! Each actor was perfect for the role they brought to this movie. The music in the movie was "phat". The dancing in this movie was really good. It was a little different than what we in the USA usually see but fun to watch. I would definitely watch Andrew Goth movies. I look forward to his next one whenever that may be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Movie December 2, 2000
Format:DVD
When I first saw it, I was half sleep and It had caught my attention. So I watched it again and It was a Good Movie. I think Andrew Goth, Goldie and Mr. Bowie did a Great Job, in a movie about Obsession, Jealous rage. The music was Phat!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight UK gangsta flick June 13, 2007
Format:DVD
To put it bluntly, the film is great. The story is about family and how nobody can pull these two (Terry and Ray) apart... at least that's how Terry sees it. Along the way, Ray's little UK Garage style dance group finally gets the chance to do a show at a big club but under what consequence? The story has great plot twists making you wonder who is really behind all the killing which is later revealed in a voicemail that Ray receives at the end of the film.

The film features a good soundtrack, mostly UK Garage and breakbeat style tracks. It's too bad we didn't hear any DnB or Jungle. The image of the gangsters is quite solid with their nice armored black cars with bangin sound systems. Bowie's performance is good and in the intro you get to see his eyes in their true form and up close... one eye dilated and the other not.

Overall, in this genre of film, it's top notch... especially if you can relate to the nuances and scene that this is placed in. If you're not all that into UK urban culture or gangster flicks, it might not make a good flick to check, but otherwise... HIT IT UP!

This movie has absolutely nothing to do with Ernest Shackleton and Antarctica. Don't waste your time or money if that's what you are looking for.
