Critic Reviews:
“As well as writing and directing, Cook also excels in the lead role playing the big shot dealer Cain; his performance is genuinely powerful and he has a presence on screen that suggests he is destined for bigger things.”

“I have nothing but immense admiration for filmmakers like Cook and Armstrong, who will stop at nothing to tell their stories and make their movies. Budget be damned! The filmmakers pull out all the stops to tell a gritty crime story while making good use of the limited resources at their disposal. Coke, guns, and tough-talking characters are on full display, yet Cook and Armstrong know that their story of loyalty, survival, and betrayal is of utmost importance.”

“This dark story explores what life is like as a drug-dealing criminal, focusing primarily on the dangers and tragedies of being part of the underworld. It carries the message that leading such a life will have devastating consequences.”
— Jason Knight, UK FILM REVIEW
