When this film started, I was completely unnerved that I was facing another film that expected me to sympathize with some pathetic bastard caged in the dramatic aura of: 'but deep down, he's a really great guy.' It pulled itself out of that hole eventually and redeemed itself a little. It's got a violent streak in it, but it also has some heart. Eddie Marsan is frightening.
