Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando) is our grubby guide through London's seedy underworld of drugs, sex slavery and murder, in Gerard Johnson's indie thriller. That he's a corrupt, drug-addicted vice cop trying to play both sides of the fence is just going to complicate things, especially now that some particularly nasty Albanian criminals are making their move. And back at the cop shop, Logan's former partner (Stephen Graham) has re-surfaced, seeking Logan's street-wise dark arts for a take-down of the Albanians. It's gritty and moody, and won't be unfamiliar to fans of similar cop-spiraling-downward works. The biggest surprise will be the ending, which — fair warning — will be polarizing.
