What a great little film this is too,clever story, about a boy whos sister is in debt to some bad people.The boy is offered a deal given a wedge of cash in fact more than the £8,000 his sister owes,all he gotta do is not get caught within 12 hours and he is home free.He goes on the run not knowing who to trust,who to turn to on the dark streets.Can he pit his wits against 2 guys hell bent on stopping him.A really good thriller with lots of twists and turns along the way,well recommended and at a giveaway price,well packaged from the seller,this film will not let you down,well acted throughout,fast paced action.Another brit film that looks to have slipped under the radar.Yes a little gem.

Started well...but fell away somewhat.

An interesting little story, but it is a bit disjointed. Low budget, but at times it punches well above its weight. Not a classic by any means, but i can imagine some will love it. I found it ok...a mean 2 stars, the baddie would get 4 stars!!

Interesting and enjoyable.

An interesting, well-made, enjoyable watch but, as is so common with thriller and suspense films, the plot does not stand up to close examination.

Play The Game
Verified purchase
And what a game it is too. This dark, chilling and gritty British thriller will have you on the edge of your seat. In my opinion, this is Richard Jobson's best film so far. Atmospheric and beautifully shot. I watched its premiere on BBC1 a while back, and just had to get it on DVD. A masterclass in film making on a low budget. I highly recommend this, and know that you won't be disappointed. I just hope that Richard Jobson's next film, if there is one, is up to this standard.
