The Guvnors Trailer


Back in the 90s, a brutal South East London firm known as The Guvnors pretty much ruled their side of town. But now there's a new generation of ruthless street gangsters led by Adam (Harley Sylvester); a formidable and scarred leader whose not afraid to inflict violence on anybody. While Guvnors leader Mitch (Doug Allen) has, with a huge effort, left his past behind him in order to have a career and bring up his child, things get complicated when Adam wants to make sure that the Guvnors are longer a threat to his leadership. After a bitter altercation whereby Guvnor veteran Mickey Snr. (David Essex), gets the better of Adam, the youngsters decide to go after him and Mitch. However, just killing them in their homes will no doubt bring dishonour upon their firm, and so the two gangs face a savage face-off on the streets of London.

Weak

Packed with cliches, there's nothing remotely original about this East London crime thriller, which seems to be based on other similar movies rather than an original story or characters. It's also not particularly well-made, stretching a clearly low budget to the breaking point. But at least it has the always watchable Danny Dyer on board.

He plays Jimmy, a highly trained military operative who has been serving in Afghanistan but has a meltdown when he hears that his parents (Samms and Denham) have been brutally murdered by gangsters. So he escapes from military police custody and somehow returns to London to get revenge, tracking down the dealer (Osei) who ordered the murders, then killing him and his sidekicks in increasingly nasty ways. A local cop (Petrie) is on Jimmy's trail, hoping to advance his career by catching a serial killer. But he's told to back off by Jimmy's commanding officer (Regan), who knows what Jimmy's capable of.

There are quite a few other complications to the story, including Jimmy's attempts to help his estranged wife (McKee) and young daughter. And Jimmy also gets his old pal Griff (Ryan), who's now in the police force, to act as a double agent. Each actor makes the most of his or her character, overcoming the stereotypes and stiff dialog. But no one's remotely likeable, and even Dyer's character is more gleefully violent than is strictly necessary. This is the kind of role Jason Statham normally plays, but even he would struggle to make us sympathise with this guy.

Vendetta Trailer


Jimmy Vickers is a Special Forces Interrogator who returns home from his run in Afghanistan to a less than warm welcome. A vengeful gang has brutally murdered his elderly parents and, in a haze of fury and despair, he flees from his old unit and the police in a bid to avenge their deaths on his own terms - no matter what happens to him as a consequence. Even despite pleas from all around him  for him to let the authorities handle it, all he has is violence on his mind and so attempts to escape them just until he has slaughtered every last one of the killers - but could his actions be putting someone else in danger along the way?

'Vendetta' is a gritty British crime thriller directed and written by Stephen Reynolds ('Tomb Raider Ascension') and starring Danny Dyer, who's infamous for his roles in a bloodthirsty action flicks including 'Severance', 'The Football Factory' and 'Deviation'.
