Paddy tears up the screen!

Some may think the British film industry is dead, but Dead Man's Shoes stomps all over that theory. A raw and surprisingly affective tale of small town revenge, Shane Meadows film breathes new life into a genre that's riddled with un-originality. Paddy Considine tears up the screen as 'Richard', a former soldier who returns to a Derbyshire town to avenge his retarded brothers tormentors. Every fac... read more

A riveting, revolutionary British slasher!

"God will forgive them. He'll forgive them and allow them into Heaven. I can't live with that."

English filmmaker Shane Meadows shrugs off the cynical, bittersweet working class standpoint evident in his preceding films, such as Once Upon a Time in the Midlands, and interchanges it with a savage, gripping, genre-defying, sinister contemporary tale of violence and retribution: an aus... read more

How come it took me so long to discover Shane Meadows?!? I just saw โ€˜ This is Englandโ€™ a few weeks back and I found it pretty amazing and this time again, Mr Meadows quite blew me away. This flick is a really different beast though. First of all, I was impressed by the directing and cinematography. Indeed, there were some simple shots but so perfectly composed, it was just really beautiful to... read more

Richard (Paddy Considine) comes home from the army bent on revenge against the local gang of dealers and thugs that brutalized his mentally disabled brother, Anthony (Toby Kebbell). Richard's one-man guerilla campaign terrorizes the bullies, who begin to turn on one another as he efficiently eliminates them one by one. This engrossing BAFTA-nominated drama powerfully illustrates the overriding bond of brotherly love.

“Manoeuvring the revenge western template into modern day North West England, Shane Meadows' achieves this with voracious execution, deriving its palpable imagery and themes from fervently violent predecessors "Taxi Driver" and "High Plains Drifter", all the while measuring up to such influences even if it doesn't quite match them. Immersing the viewer from the outset in the plot with vague, somewhat limited establishing scenes or characterisation, Meadows operates on a guerrilla model in terms of cinematography, direction and script, allowing for an intimate, deeply affecting yet entirely stark and disturbing story to unfold at a progressive rate that never seems to override the integral aspects of the narrative. Meadows matches the hastened pace of the plot with low-budget, confounding sa” read more

" After a soldier returns from his military duty, he learns that three years earlier, a small gang of drug dealers had bullied his younger. Now, if this situation ended here, then it still would've made for a tale about a vet's vicious quest for vengeance that is fueled by the power of brotherly love. But add to the fact that the younger brother suffers from a mental disability, (not to mention that the script of this movie hints that the older soldier sibling also might not be in the best of he"
