The Stath meets The Bill in a London-set thriller that pits his hard-nosed cop against a cocky psycho (Aidan Gillen) who has decided to make his own contribution towards reducing police numbers.
Carnage ensues, flashily filmed by Elliott Lester in a way that suggests he’s auditioning to be Guy Ritchie’s stand-in.
David Morrissey and Paddy Considine pad out a decent ensemble, while one breathless chase briefly gets the pulse racing.
Yet Nathan Parker’s script is a conflation of clichés, the most apparent seeing Jason’s Shirty Harry act as the defective detective with the corrective invective.
