Out of work Traders come up with a dangerous fast cash scheme
19 December 2016 | by dale-51649See all my reviews

I am a big Brit flick/Mic flick fan, so when I stumbled on this find I was instantly hooked. A couple of 'yuppie mics" loose they're jobs at a bond trading firm, and the fat one comes up with a scheme to make a lot of jack. There is a catch though (isn't there always?), you could easily die doing it.

The boys decide to go to the Dark net, and arrange a fight to the death-winner take all MMA style knife fight dual. The cooler one , sort of a younger ,better looking stephen Rea type, is quite good at it (woudnt you have to be?)

The cool thing about it is, it is so original and twisted that you literally don't know what is going to happen. There is a love interest, a sort of not too bad looking Irish version of a trailer park pretty ,but they don't go all American style smash your face into it. The gal doesn't even boss him around.

The great thing about this film is, it actually has suspense. For an American who has been force fed Lifetime channel "it's for the children" formulas for so long we are perpetually nauseated, it was really refreshing. If you are looking for something well acted, different, and most of all non pandering, you will love it.
