Editorial Reviews

Based on the life of notorious gangster Paul Ferris. Martin Compston stars as Ferris, who was brought up on the roughest streets in the most vicious neighborhood in 1960's Scotland. After taking revenge, one by one on a gang of bullying street-thugs, Ferris starts out working for two rival gang bosses, The Godfather and The Snake. After a brutal betrayal leading to a bloody massacre on the streets of Glasgow, Ferris decides to go it alone. Carving out a dangerous and savage career defined by violence, corruption and murder, Paul 'The Wee Man' Ferris ends up becoming one of the most feared gangsters in history.

Paul Ferris became an infamous Scottish gangster after he began a life of crime as a teenager. His brother, Billy, was a convicted murderer. Ferris was involved as a teenager in brutal knife attacks of Welsh brothers. He spent much of his early years in various correctional facilities. Convicted of gun running, he made his living as a debt collector/enforcer for Glasgow underworld figure Arthur Thompson, the Godfather. He was linked to stabbings, beatings, and blindings. Allegedly he lived by the code "no civilians" (only other participants would be harmed, but not innocent women, children, etc.) His relationship with the Godfather ultimately went bad (as often is the case with gangsters), leading to hits and retaliation. This movie is allegedly his true story, and somewhat glorifies his escapades and attempts to justify much of the violence from his perspective, but is also very brutal and disturbing. It is a fascinating portrait of a criminal underworld. He still lives in Scotland, and the saga of this criminal continues, as he was accused of making online threats to a rival in 2014 (although the movie ends before this point).
The accents are heavy, but we watched with subtitles and it was great. Overall, a very interesting movie that keeps you engaged. If you like true crime and specifically organized crime, you should find this movie worthwhile.

Great movie - the Scot accents were a bit overwhelming at times but just back it up and listen again :)

This tale does not show the crime that the "family" perpetrates to make their money but rather focuses on the violence, jealousy, backstabbing and revenge between themselves. The focus is on Peter Farris, what he experienced in childhood that made him what he is through his rise and ultimate betrayal with a gang family. Some pretty good acting despite a low budget feel. This is a Glasgow crew and the accents are very heavy, enough to have a hard time understand some of the dialogue. Moderate recommendation.

I wasn't so sure if this movie would stand the test of other gangster movies but this one was to me great..great storyline and great acting. I will recommend this movie to others. The Scottish accents might be a bit much ( I understood it) for some but you can use the closed captioned to read along

Generally it's a good flick.....but got a chuckel from the obvious plants (write-ups) about language. NO you will not understand 50% of the dialog but so what you will still enjoy the movie.
