The film is all about an out of work cockney man who returns to work as a hired hit-man. He partners up with his ex army team mate to complete a contracted kill list. However, as the list is continually ticked off with kills the main man loses it mentally, becoming more out of control and dangerous. This amidst marital unrest, stress and PTS makes for a turbulent ride. The kill list unveils paedophiles which stir up the underlying anger, and then the couple uncover a cult like gang, which leads into a ferocious but ultimately shocking (yet impressive) ending.
Here the trailer:
And here my review:
A veteran and ex-hitman is in need of money for his young family and gets help from a friend, also a hitman, as he manages to obtain three jobs, which are well-paid. But soon they find out, that these aren't regular customers. It's already too late, as they got quickly entangled in an evil and twisted game, in which they become the protagonists.
This film was difficult to digest, especially when the twist at the end is revealed. It reminded me lots of Martyrs, but with a different vision in terms of kills and violence. Since Eden Lake, this is easily the most nihilistic piece of film coming out of the UK. I "enjoyed" it a lot, especially the boneshattering physical and psychological violence is a treat for the eyes and mind.
I highly recommend it, it's worth a look and the invested time.
