Critic Reviews for Once Upon A Time In London
A difference, in that it goes out of its way to deglamourise the lives of its toerag protagonists - chisellers, extorters and degenerates to a man.
If the intended audience for this is people who like true crime books with retro cover art then this will probably scratch their itch. But it's not hard to see that the budget was modest and spread as thin as it possibly could be.
There's so many kickings, beatings and slashings administered, it almost tips into self-parody.
The storytelling is inadequate, the lack of budget is glaring, the cinematography is perfunctory at best and the soundtrack is an irritating and repetitive pastiche of mostly lousy songs.
You'd think a more colorful film could have been wrung out of this lot, and not the dry jerky drift through the decades that director Simon Rumley and British acting's C-list deliver.
