Angel’s Share

I have to admit, I went into this thinking it was a comedy, I didn’t realise it was quite so violent. This is a film that is pretty enjoyable at the time but does not really hold up to inspection. giving it the benefit of the doubt, maybe the flaws I am picking up are more noticeable to me, having been a young Scottish male, and having worked with guys like those portrayed in the film.  The one thing that sticks with me is do I really want to root for the repeat violent offender to have a happy ending? Is committing a major crime the only way people can get out of these estates? Also, where the hell did the angry father in law (psycho-baws) come from, when he sped up just in time? OK that was 3 things, but watch the film for yourself, despite all this it was good and it is nice to have a film make you think a bit.
