Editorial Reviews

He’s out of jail and bent on revenge

"Extraordinarily realistic style" —The Observer (U.K.)

"Ingenious…deftly made" —The Daily Telegraph (U.K.)

After an eight-year prison stint for a failed bank heist, Frank Ross (Tom Bell, Prime Suspect) returns to his old gangland haunts to find the snitch who sent him to jail. The smooth, streetwise ex-con quickly adjusts to the new attitudes of the disco-tinged ’70s but discovers that although neighborhoods change, old grudges never go out of style.

Played with steely intelligence by Bell, Ross doesn’t hesitate to pull a gun or swing a fist if it suits him. Can he find the rat without falling into the clutches of a ruthless crime boss (Brian Cox, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) or the detective (Norman Rodway, The Bretts) determined to destroy him?

Filmed on location in South London, Out depicts a world where gritty pubs, dingy flats, and run-down office buildings teem with high-living mobsters, cash-starved hustlers, and corrupt cops. BAFTA nominee Bell delivers a psychologically complex portrait of a gangster whose inner demons torment him as ferociously as his flesh-and-blood enemies.

Format:DVD
First be aware this is vintage footage and image improved to the capability of TV footage from decades ago, but not perfect. Accepting that; read on and find a thriller of a series. Expect "OUT" to look like late 1970's era because it was made then. Not intended to be a retro era entertainment, it now becomes so with set and costume perfection. Shot in 1978, it shows typical bell bottom trousers and more. Fun visually for the nostalgia fans.

The story is not a fun travelogue romp through the streets of south London. Life shown is on the nasty side of the law making it hard to find a character very likable. It's hard to empathize with people out to rob, injure, and kill. They all seem to live by the code of violence. An intense psychological thriller as well as a mystery from the underworld. Some B/W footage is used during flashbacks. Some short bits of nudity appear. You'll also find some compelling hours to view while getting to the fast-paced volatile finale.

Frank Ross (Tom Bell- Prime Suspect: The Complete Collection ) is released after 8 years having spent them all contemplating who set him up, along with his "firm" of bank robbing pals, Billy, Ralph, Vic, & Bernie. He vows to get to the culprit if it is the last thing he does, and it may just be that. Frank's acquaintances are not spiffy `gentlemen' but street wise and crime controlling thugs. There are many side plots, like an insane wife, a troubled son, a friend in debt, and secrets that could cost lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars The brilliant Tom Bell. April 14, 2014
Format:DVD
OUT is the name of a just-released DVD six-part series from 1978 starring one of the most intense actors of his generation: Tom Bell.

While his stage career began in 1948, Bell didn’t enter films and television until the late fifties, where he was part of generation of working-class, “angry young men” hell-raiser types like Peter O’Toole and Albert Finny, two of his better-known (and more successful) contemporaries. Bell’s celluloid/tape career began promisingly enough but his drinking led to an infamous incident in which Bell heckled Prince Philip, who was giving a speech at an awards function. While the Prince deflected Bell’s comment with good-humoured aplomb, those sitting at Bell’s table (which included the likes of Sir Richard Attenborough) were mortified at Bell’s faux pas. It is said this incident impeded Bell’s progress into the stratosphere of film and television stardom.

Still, he did quite well, and was considered to have never given a bad performance.

There is a lean, mean, fightin’ machine demeanor about Bell which works greatly in his favour as a screen presence. He once said “If you act you need to have threat. Without threat, nobody notices you.” This intensity is precisely the reason Bell is so outstanding in OUT, another little-known gem given new life by Acorn Media from the archives of classic British television.

Frank Ross, Bell’s character, has just been released from an eight-year stint in prison. He is now “out” of jail and wants to know who “grassed” on him–which is English parlance for “squealed”. Bell is a man with a not-so-advisable mission, though curiously, it involves honour and an underlying moral thread to “do the right thing”.
