Had this on my "to see" list since I read a rather favourable review from Ebert. And I was glad I did - a VERY serviceable thriller.

Done in the UK with very street-level urban slang which is hard to follow at times but it doesn't matter as the film itself is shot well even with its apparent lower-end budget.

It actually stretches my rule on child death as the main characters are all 15 and *minor spoiler* yes, some of them die...but I found their deaths to be almost noble. They died with honour. LOL!

Anyways, a VERY good rental IMHO...watched it with a bowl of chips and a beer and I was happpaiiie!

Yeah, I've had this on my desktop waiting to be watched for some time now, but just haven't gotten around to it. Heard nothing but good things.
