This is one of the very great gangster movies. In British film it can be ranked with Get Carter and The Long Good Friday. Believe me it really is that good.Direction,plot,script,acting everything comes together. Making a harder than nails film. Tough with real and scary gangsters plus a career best cameo from Freddie Star. And an excellent starring role by Stacy Keach.These are not geezer gangsters of the Guy Ritchie variety.These are down dirty and very,very nasty. A great film

Chronologically sitting between Get Carter & The Long Good Friday this is something of a lost classic British gangster / heist film containing all the tough , gritty realism of its better known peers - with Stacy Keach ( for some reason ) cast as an alcoholic ex-London cop . Highly recommended to fans of the genre - bit dated otherwise but still stands up against more recent films.

Don't confuse this movie with the Michael Keaton one.
This has Stacey Keach, David Hemmings, Freddie Starr, Edward Fox et al and Stephen Boyd as a particularly nasty villain.
Apted piles on the grotesquery and the squalor, and the bank job gone wrong ending is superb.

So, way back when, the time of the dinosaurs it seems, before all crime films were filled with explosions, crime films had actual crimes happen in them. In this case, kidnapping, assault, and rape are the crimes of times. Don't worry though, nothing overly explicit. It's a solidly tasteful production of decidedly untasteful material, which means it's a wonderful mess.

The plot revolves around drunk ex-cop Stacey Keach trying to do a British accent. He's a good actor but his accent just sounds weird. Besides the accent though, he's got an ex-wife who is now married to a much nicer man with a lot of money. Like all women of this nature are want to do, she gets kidnapped with her daughter and held for ransom. Her new husband tells Stacey Keach about it sending Stacey out on the road to redemption and hopefully overcoming being such an alcoholic mess.

Admittedly, I make it all sound a bit trite but it's actually pretty good. The movie isn't overly stylized. It's very matter of fact. None of the camera shots are chosen to accentuate displays of bad behavior or taste. It's all surprisingly pleasant for a movie where a woman gets abused for a good portion of the running time.

I guess maybe in the end, that's the real flaw of the film. It's all so rather pleasant for such nasty subject matter. The situations get tense but the manner in which it's shot makes it feel like a rather risque episode of Master Piece Theater. I half expected Prince Charles or Diana Rigg to introduce it and ask me to fund PBS.

So, yeah, jokes aside, I recommend the movie. There's a plot. Character development. Stacey Keach. A line of great British character actors. A completely weird tone that is happy to whack you upside the head whenever. It was worth the 20 I spent on amazon for it.

The main reason why I had bought this movie was for the extended nude scene by Stacey Keach. In the 80's I had watched Stacey as the hot, hunky Mike Hammer on tv. I had fantasized about what Stacey looked like in the nude. This movie ended my wonder. Stacey bares his not only his ass, but the family jewels, too. He is stripped naked and paraded down a public street. The rest of the movie was itself okay. It's a B-movie, so expectations should be set for a B-movie. Thanks, Stacey, for having the balls to bare your balls for your fans.
