Movie Info

This biographical thriller charts the notorious rise of southern England's most famous gangsters-- Tony Tucker, Patrick Tate, and Craig Rolfe. The trio of drug suppliers and career criminals were found in 1995, blasted to death by a shot gun in a Range Rover in Essex. A stronghold of fear and violence that allowed them to maintain a large, drug fuelled empire perhaps led to their untimely deaths.

Willfully exploitative...

Top Critic

A pungent mess of gangster cliche.

Top Critic

A thin, wan script, acting that's mostly embarrassing, and a stream of foul expletives where a script should be.

September 2, 2010 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Decently made and well-acted, but with a whiff of glossy, high-life voyeurism.

September 1, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Worth watching, but the whole just isn't nearly as effective as some of the parts.

January 8, 2011 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Based on the same true story previously told on film with skill (2000's Essex Boys) and without (2007's Rise of the Footsoldier), it's kind of difficult to understand why there's yet another movie version. Especially one as uninteresting as this.
