SPOILERS must be tagged with the "SPOILER" tag!

It's easily the best three or four minutes the movie has to offer; unfortunately, after this great beginning, it's all downhill.

I thought it stopped being amusing after about 30 seconds, and became stretched to breaking point soon after - talk about beating a dead horse. This film has a lot of problems - cliched and uninteresting characters, a dull derivative story - nothing here pops. While I seriously wanted to like it, it really suffers from comparisons of superior films of the same ilk like Sexy Beast or even Filth. The Brits are kinda cranking these crime comedies out now with zero originality - it's merely a cynical cash grab since imo there really is nothing NEW to see here.
