Critic Reviews for Restless Natives

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Kids keep cropping up in the action - unsentimental and unimpressed by both the cops and the robbers.

An old school ripping yarn which takes a couple of losers and makes something a little special.

Audience Reviews for Restless Natives

As a baddass gangsta movie it fails a gentle genuinly funny buddy romp its a triumph. Two lads need money so start robbing tour busses in the Highlands...absolutely brilliant.
