If you have been waiting anxiously for a poorly acted, more boring version of the great film 'Pusher' you are in luck!

engages but ultimately does not deliver.the ending leaves you hanging and you don't know what happens to the main character.he also is not particularly sympathetic .almost worth watching but not for the ten dollars i paid.not to mention completely depressing.no real point to it other than a low life is willing to sell out everyone including his own mother[literally] to survive.he deserved all got

Why filmmakers find it necessary to remake versions of films successful in other languages so soon after the release of the originals is puzzling - but we have remakes of the Stieg Larrson "Millennium series" and now the Nicolas Winding Refn Pusher trilogy transplanted to London instead of Copenhagen: the question remains as to `Why?' Supposedly it is the finest form of flattery to copy another's work, but with the paucity of really quality films in the theaters now the trend seems a redundant waste.

Not that the current Luis Prieto/Matthew Read single version PUSHER is not worth the effort because in many ways it is a tight and tense and well crafted little film. Comparisons seem unfair were it not for the fact that it is a condensation of the Refn trilogy. The story starts off with a bang and races pell-mell to its finish, and the camera work and music background aid immeasurably to the success of the movie. It is a race against the clock thriller in which a minor drug dealer Frank (Richard Coyle), accompanied by his sidekick, the female obsessed Tony (Bronson Webb) botch a surefire drug deal from an import from Amsterdam via carrier Danaka (Daisy Lewis) is supposed to pay off crime lord Milo (Zlatko Buric in a fine replay of his original role) and his guard Hakan (Mem Ferda), but deal after deal fails, Frank is arrested after dumping a large amount of cocaine in the river, and for a week Frank attempts to borrow money from everyone he has befriended in the past including his girlfriend Flo (Agyness Deyn) and his mother (Joanna Hole) and his hit Marlon (Neil Maskell). Frank's desperation mounts as Milo demands payment and literally everything falls apart for Frank - except for the hope of getting out of the game, and even that fails if we are to believe the end of the story.

It's hard to discuss the British crime drama "Pusher" without acknowledging that it is a remake of a tremendous Danish film by Nicholas Winding Refn. Winding Refn, in fact, created a trio of films now known as the Pusher Trilogy (the movies were from 1996, 2004 and 2005) and I would run, not walk, to see them if this genre interests you. A true auteur, Winding Refn has a brutal machismo and an unrelenting eye for the randomness of violence that is showcased in works including "Bronson" with Tom Hardy, "Valhalla Rising" with Mads Mikkelsen, "Drive" with Ryan Gosling, and the current "Only God Forgives" (also with Gosling) which opened to division and controversy at this year's Cannes Film Festival. I begin with this discussion of Winding Refn, because he endorsed this version with an executive producer credit. It may not be entirely fair to judge the two films with one another, so I'll try to break it down in a more helpful way. Fans of the original "Pusher" film will likely be disappointed by this rather wan interpretation. But even if you haven't seen the Danish film, this crime saga feels rather familiar and ordinary. It's not a terrible movie, by any means, it just isn't as unique or compelling as you might hope.

"Pusher" tells the story of a drug dealer (well played by Richard Coyle) who is having a very bad week indeed. Coyle fixates on an irresistible scheme to get rich quick. In pursuit of this deal, he crosses a local crime boss (Zlatko Buric, who also played Milo in the original) and this proves to be a very poor idea. Never believe in an impossibly good deal! And be sure you can pay your debts! In an escalating series of mishaps, nothing goes right for Coyle and his cohort Tony (Bronson Webb).
