    Excellent movie, funny & sad, dark humour mixed with pathos. Will make you cry and belly laugh in the space of one scene. Great storyline with brilliant perfomances from main characters and supporting cast. well worh a visit to the cinema and well worth the money you'll pay for the ticket. I hear bafta nominations

    Scouse ninja's, Shadow men, psycho steptoe and a Loser main character with flashes of Robert De Niro. This film is full of surprises and never ceases to entertain. Trainspotting meets shakespearian tragi-comedy meets dickensian melodrama. It takes you to the depths of despair and then gently lifts you. This film has the lot and more. With added Hints of Peter Schaffer, Joe Orton and even Becket in the black humour/ dark comedic techniques displayed in the writing. If the industry has a soul and the public have a heart it should do well.
