Our Score
Marking the directorial debut of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels producer Matthew Vaughn, this decent British crime flick stars Daniel Craig as a rising young drug dealer whose ambition is to make some quick money and then retire early. His plans - involving a massive shipment of ecstasy - are complicated by drugs lord Kenneth Cranham, who asks him to find the wayward daughter of an associate (dodgy businessman Michael Gambon). Vaughn directs with assuredness and aplomb, and he would go on to bigger things with the Kick-Ass and Kingsman movies. As for Craig, he proved he had all the right credentials to take on the role of James Bond.


A London cocaine dealer is all set to leave the criminal world behind and start a new life abroad. However, his plans are thwarted when he is asked to track down a gangster's drug-addicted daughter and locate a stolen shipment of Ecstasy. Crime thriller, starring Daniel Craig, Michael Gambon, Colm Meaney, Kenneth Cranham and Sienna Miller.
