The fourth feature from Shane Meadows (This Is England, A Room for Romeo Brass), one of the UKs most exciting directors, Dead Mans Shoes is a gritty yet fiercely moral tale of gangland retribution.
Two brothers return to the hometown they left eight years earlier, to find it still run by the same gang of small-time drug dealers and petty thugs. Their purpose, it soon becomes clear, is not reunion, but revenge a quest of particular significance for Richard (Paddy Considine Hot Fuzz, The Bourne Ultimatum), the leader of the two, whose obsessive desire to even the score will lead them into dangerous territory.

Evoking Get Carter in its avenging brother scenario and featuring an outstanding central performance from Considine (not to mention a cracking score featuring Bonnie Prince Billy and Aphex Twin), Dead Mans Shoes is Meadows finest film to date.

OK film but not worth buying the BluRay as it's hardly spectacular...

Awesome film, just don't expect any Hollywood Glamour from Shane Meadows.
