|"Stick it up your ma."|
At a glance:
Autobiopic vehicle for Geoff Thompson, the Coventry hard man who went from club doorman to writer, martial arts teacher, motivator, talk giver and DVD seller. Pretty impressive marketin campaign for such a modest project. Movie is based on his book Watch My Back.
Bad news on the doorstep:
Loved the 80s settin but nahh this is one movie that's really into itself. Danny (Crispin Clover lookalike Mel Raido) makes me laugh out loud when he gets into the whole I-must-read-Sun Tzu phase. To be a Midlands doorman in those days must be tough but this movie is more like family drama with lots of inelegant digressions, includin Rambo trainin moments.
|Party... like it's 1980.|
Reminds me of:
Some pathetic West Yorkshiremen I used to know. Always short on fuse, money and action.
Watch out for:
Danny havin a go at some inbred fat fucks with a brick in front of his kids - topless, shoutin and swearin. Raw. Speakin of raw, the FX on a beat up rasta's face is pretty awesome. The whole socket area was swollen and the eye looked as slim as a cunt slit.
Most memorable line:
Fukkin Zorro. Ha.

You could do a lot worse. For a bit of variety, I guess.★★ 1/2
