Gang leaders Ray (Andrew Goth) and Terry (Goldie), who are cousins and lifelong friends, always trusting and relying on each other, have been in prison. Ray doesn't want to be a gangster anymore, having also fallen for Clare (Rachel Shelley). but Terry, driven by an obsession beyond friendship, is determined to make sure that Ray never leaves the gang. During their time in prison, the local Chinese Triad gang have grown stronger and more daring, eventually killing a member of Terry and Ray's gang.

Trivia

Goldie has been a long time fan of David Bowie and was quoted stating: "David Bowie [...] had been a massive influence on my early life, when I was a closet Bowie freak - "Space Oddity" was always a different ballgame, and then there was "Low" and all the other Eno stuff, which I found out about later."

1 June 1999 | by Dodger-9See all my reviews

Despite the low budget and often unfocused script, this gangster thriller from Andrew Goth proves to be quite absorbing. Notable for a fleeting appearance by David Bowie as a camp underworld villain who loves to say "Sweet as a nut" a lot, this is really a vehicle for Wolverhampton's Goldie, the best selling musician and now actor who looks like he was born to plays bad guys. It's an often violent affair with Goldie's character proving to be a little too terrifying, especially when he assaults gorgeous newcomer Rachel Shelley. Some memorable scenes: Goldie, his head framed almost in a religious aura; the Black Rain style face off with Chinese gangsters and a decent dance number near the movie's finale. Reminiscent of Danny Cannon's The Young Americans, this looks to be a suitable calling card for any Hollywood producer looking to hire Goth for an American project. No classic but try and stick with it as there are a few diamonds in the rough.
