Harrowing thriller about a hotwired ex-soldier (co-scripter Paddy Considine from Cinderella Man) who returns to his sleepy Midlands hometown to dole out merciless revenge upon the booze and drug-sodden hoodlums who abused his mentally handicapped younger brother (the astonishing Toby Kebbel). Director Shane Meadows (Once Upon a Time in the Midlands) doesn't shy away from delivering scenes of gripping suspense and violence, but the end result hews closer to an ambiguous meditation on the nature and effect of vengeance a la Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs than a Death Wish-style grindhouse effort. Taut and thought-provoking, Dead Man's Shoes is a must-see for indie film aficionados with a taste for the grittiest of fare. The DVD includes some rollicking commentary by Meadows, Considine, and producer Mark Herbert; an intriguing and heartfelt featurette on Meadows and his own violent past as a teenage skinhead in 1980s England, from which he drew inspiration for this film; and an alternate (and somewhat less satisfying) final scene.

Awesome film for anyone who has not seen it before, a must watch. Great price too. If anyone can find it cheaper please post. :thumbsup:

Top film but hate HMV...

I loved the other Shane Meadows films but watched this last week and have to say I really disliked it. It is so bleak and almost impossible to feel anything for any of the characters. Massive dissappointment

not a bad price tho.....

Good film.
Its on Film 4 now and again.

This is the best Vigilante film for a long time and shows how it should be done. If you have ever considered in detail what you would do to someone that harmed your family this will be right up your street. If you are a bit of an iphone loving girls blouse then you won't feel the deep down emotion and rage, so pass it by as you can't handle the real tough World

Probably Meadows' best movie but I thought the pseudo-cowboy bits were rather silly and could have benefitted from some tighter script editing.
