Film & DVD Review: The Business

This is the third film from Nick Love. He did The Football Factory (2004) and Goodbye Charlie Bright (2001).

If you like 80s music and London Gangster films like ‘Snatch’ and ‘Lock, Stock’ you’ll love this. It’s the story of Frankie (Danny Dyer) trying to make his way amongst the big boys of crime in Spain. This film has it all: thumping 80s tunes (from the likes of Duran Duran, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and even A Flock of Seagulls). Great cast, great locations and bad 80s fashions! Despite some unfair poor reviews it should go down a bomb at the box office.

Directed by Nick Love
