GreenReviews’s review published on Letterboxd:
If I'm being completely honest, I thought this was a bit shite. It wasn't terrible, but there wasn't anything likeable about it at all for me. None of the characters felt like real people and had little to no depth to them. The whole story was just duh you hurt my brother so I am gunna kill you. As for the flashback black and white scenes, they were ok but it feels like a student film just trying to use monochrome in a flashback scene just so the audience doesn't get confused, and that annoys me because I don't like it when a film treats me like a thick person. Again, not terrible but the story is shite and Shane Meadows has decent filmmaking voice, but this is not one for me.
