Dead Man's Shoes
Directed by Shane Meadows
After Richard’s time in the army is over, the soldier returns to his hometown to get even with the thugs who brutalized his brother years ago. When the gang members learn Richard’s back, they try to eliminate him. But Richard is always a step ahead, making his moves carefully until each crook has paid for their crime. Director Shane Meadows (THIS IS ENGLAND) was always a keen observer of rough and tough male characters, and in the great Paddy Considine, he found the ideal lead to play such a vicious and capable killer. An absolute must-see for revenge-flick fans.
A soldier returns to his home to get even with the thugs who brutalized his brother years ago.
Cast: Paddy Considine, Gary Stretch, Toby Kebbell
Great revenge flick. Considine gives a super intense performance. I loved the ending.
Not bad, not horror but for a revenge flick it’s up there.
Firstly, Paddy is incredible. But this is just my cup of tea, a dark, revenge driven ghost story. Loved every minute of it.
As a Brit, Shane Meadows is kind of our Bruce Springsteen. So take my score, subtract from it the amount of nostalgia you feel towards bruce Springsteen, and the number of skulls you have left is how much you will enjoy this film.
