Forget it
20 February 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Let's be clear, this film is not really a crime flick, but rather a thriller with much suspense and a good guys facing, fighting against heavy ones, gangsters, and trying to help and save a young woman who lost her memory. In a crime, noir, film, you have not this clear boundary between good and evil; but in thrillers, yes. Definitely. In a crime film, you have only gangsters among themselves and - or - cops, renegade, rogue, violent cops among them or against gangsters. With often a bleak atmosphere. So, back to this one, you have a story of a sort of nick of time scheme, but rather foreseeable. But the result is that I was bored to death with this UK feature. Acting is bad, directing awful...
