Aroview: The independent hit of 1998 is a massively assured directing debut and an entertainment sensation.
Cocked with sharp dialogue, intricate plotting, and a satisfying payoff, a fabulous rogue's gallery of character actors (and non-actors) swagger through an audaciously realised, larger-than-life world of London hood rivalry. All the more remarkable for being a '90s action-comedy not indebted to Mr. Tarantino, and not having a leg up from prescribed source material a la TRAINSPOTTING.

5 stars (Exceptional) A fun and fantastic London gangster suspense, this has brilliant dialogue, top-notch comedy, great cast, frenetic action sequences, and interesting plot. So let's sort the buyers from the spyers, the needy from the greedy, because what’s not to like?~Tom H
4 stars (Very Good) A crime film without a policeman. If you can make violence and bad language entertaining then this is a good try. When it comes to crime films the British have a cream of character actors to draw on and here are a number of them on show.~tubbs
