Conclusion: 3/5
There is little information I can find out about this film on Rotten Tomatoes and also IMDb. Great to see a film set in London. I don’t know if this sort of bike racing really happens, but the action sequences on the street of London are brilliantly filmed. Fantastic cast on board for this film. Josh Whitehouse didn’t have much of a part to play in this but I found his performance to be very effective. His first feature film was Northern Soul, 2014. Both parts that he has played have been very different. Eleanor Tomlinson was very good in this and held the whole film together. There was a scene where she was drunk and she made it look so convincing. You actually thought she could have been drunk it was so real. She makes it look so easy. The film is worth watching just to see her in a different role from Demelza. I do hope to see much more of Eleanor Tomlinson and also Josh Whitehouse. Quite funny to see them play along side each other as brother and sister as we have just seen them both in Poldark (T.V. series BBC 1) where he falls in love with her. John Hannah turns in an effective performance as the corrupt M.P.
