The year is 1984. Freddie Jackson (Hardy) has just served four years of hard time; now he's ready to set the London underworld ablaze. In the following years, Freddy launches a criminal tirade that can best be described as psychotic, and that quickly draws the attention of feared criminal kingpin Ozzy (Cox). The deeper Freddy delves into his sordid world of violence and betrayal, the further his wife Jackie (Kierston Wareing) drifts into a dark void of disillusionment and despair. Meanwhile, Jackie's sister Maggie (Charlotte Riley) makes a play for Freddy's cousin Jimmy (Shaun Evans), tipping the balance of power within the family ranks and setting the stage for an epic betrayal.

I agree with the other KCLS Patron Reviews! Outstanding crime film with a cast that will keep you glued to your seat. Yes, it is definitely not for those apposed to violence and sex. There is a truck load of both, but I can't deny this is a terrifically executed film. One of the best films I have seen all year!

An outstanding crime drama. Wonderful cast and strong performance with good music.

Excellent. But it could be emotionally trying in episode 3 and 4.

But a great gangster-type movie, portraying family life as well.

Not for the faint of heart. Great story though, seriously.
