Format: VHS Tape
This film had every thing going for it, before it was made. A great cast: Rhys Ifrans, Joeseph Fiennes, Steven Berkoff and Tara Fitzgerald. A story based on a popular book, and Lottery Funding. However, it came out as the film named by the critic Bonnie Greer "the worst film ever made". How? Well, lets start with the story, or should we say, stories.
Primary thread: a man dies leaving his business wholly to his lazy and disinterested son (Ifrans) while the man who has done all the work (Fiennes) gets nothing. Fiennes builds up a great store of resentment and hatred, and decides to destroy Ifrans, and end up with his wife (a wooden Sadie Frost), his business, and his life in general. He decides that the best way of doing this (not to give the plot entirely away) involves the Russian Mafia (Berkoff as "Godfather" and Fitzgerald as his "vamp" and highly accented, daughter).
Second plot: Ifrans and Frost are trying for a baby. At various points, for example, Ifrans is on the way to a fertility clinic with a pot of fresh sperm, the two plots affect each other, but generally they have no contact.
This second plot attempts to add humour, but, as with all attempts to add humour in this film, it fails. In fact for part of the film this plot takes over, and there are many and varied sex scenes (with Ifrans sperm obsessed voice over), all of which include Ifrans, but not always Frost.
So, apart from a ridiculous "plot" what makes this film bad: many good films have had ridiculous plots (Forrest Gump, The Wizard of Oz, Blazing Saddles)and suspension of disbelief has done its work. Well, the acting is the main culprit, and since these are all reasonable actors (Sadie Frost aside: she is constant in her mediocrity) the direction has to have some hand it its awfulness.

The Russian mafia should sue these people for bad acting. When the pseudo-Russians are on the screen time passes ever so slowly. Save your money and buy a good movie like Shallow Grave, which covers some of the same themes of greed, friendship, and betrayal. This movie does the impossible and makes Rhys Ifans seem dull. If you like Tara Fitzgerald buy Sirens, but give this sad effort a pass. It is much less than the sum of its parts.

Format: DVD
In the wake of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the British film industry rapidly became swamped with bad gangster films in the late `90s-early `00s that seem even more desperate today than they did then. In one of the all-time great cases of pearls-from-swine, the producers of Rancid Aluminium brazenly plastered the quote `The best film of the century' from one review all over the ads while omitting the rest of the sentence pointing out that that was only because, at the time of writing, it was the only film that had been released in 2000. Looking at it today it's hard to imagine how it ever got made, uniting a cast that was briefly considered the cream of Cool Britannia's Lads Mags Brigade - Rhys Ifans, Sadie Frost, Nick Moran and Joseph Fiennes - but now merely a guarantee of a turkey every time in a confused adaptation of a confused James Hawes novel. That the plot is never explained could be down to the possibility that no-one really knows what it is, or perhaps simply don't think it matters. Something to do with Ifans' businessman being set up with Steven Berkoff's homicidal Russian crime lord in a money-laundering or investment scheme (it's never clear which because no-one ever asks) by Fiennes' crooked Irish accountant, who expects the Russians to kill off Ifans so he can take over his failing company.Read more ›
