Good characters slightly eccentric wacky film
Verified purchase
This film has well known screen actors which lends itself to thinking it is interesting.
You do have to pay attention to what is going on as it is slightly wacky and weird in places.
The main character runs a tollbooth in a remote part of the country and pretty much hoped he is invisible to everyone until a person from his dodgy dealing past recognises him.
There are many eccentric characters who become involved in many scenes and scenarios that are somehow linked but also aren’t
Interesting all the same but 3 stars at the most.

£1.99 I’ll never get back
Verified purchase
I had great hopes for this film as the cast was very promising and I had read some of the good reviews.
So we settled down to watch, full of anticipation, popcorn at the ready……all I can say is thank goodness for the popcorn. It was the best thing about this film.
The film was so ‘flat’. I kept waiting for some funny dialogue, some exciting scenes, just something to make it worth the £1.99 I’d spent on it.
It was a very poor imitation of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels style film done on a 50p budget filmed in a wet winter in Wales.
It was such a shame because with the cast they had it could’ve been fantastic.

Darkly comedic
Verified purchase
Loved this black comedy set in Pembrokeshire. It’s presented as a modern day western, appropriate for west Wales (as the tongue in cheek graffiti says on a road sign -“where English people come to die”) and the finale plays out to a mariachi band treatment of Dafydd Iwan’s iconic anthem Yma O Hyd. It’ll mean more if you’re Welsh but even if not, it’s a really enjoyable watch with lots of laugh out loud moments as well as satirical points to make about issues that have shaped the nation’s past and present.
Michael Smiley leads a cast of brilliant actors (including Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon) as the solitary toll gate keeper who is not all he seems and whose past is about to catch up with him.

We hired this film for 1.99. Sadly, the dialogue was not clearly spoken and there were no subtitles, so we gave up, though it did look like an interesting film. I am a member of Amazon Prime but was dismayed to discover that somehow I have now been made a subscriber to Amazon video, even though that is included with Amazon Prime. I spent 2 hours trying to unsubscribe yesterday but was unable to do so. I have been charged £5.99 for this and presumably it will continue. I intend to close my whole account with Amazon Prime as soon as the subscription runs out. It is made too easy to join by accident and too hard to escape.

Poor and hard to understand
Verified purchase
All the flashbacks made the plot hard to follow and even at the end, the mystery wasn't explained. I couldn't help but feel this was Wales's answer to some of the funnier Scottish comedies and it wasn't funny. If you are Welsh, you might enjoy it, but don't bother otherwise.

A good film, with a strong cast. I was expecting to see a lot more of Pembrokeshire...
Verified purchase
A black comedy, low budget film. But that shouldn't put you off as the cast delivered very good performances. I'm convinced this was filmed at Marloes (lots of red rock and a disused military airfield used as the main location).

Wry and witty take on the classic gangster-western
Verified purchase
This is one of the wittiest takes on the classic gangster/westerns we have had the pleasure of seeing in years. Sit back and take joy in not only some of the loneliest yet loveliest coastlines in Wales, fabulous characters, deadpan acting, and a great script. Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Strange film, not for everyone!
Verified purchase
Reviews from BBC were good but this was quite a disappointment. Was expecting a Hot Fuzz type of thing but it certainly wasn’t. Maybe wait till it’s not so expensive and give it a try. I really wanted it to be a smash hit bout sadly not.
