On casting of McKell David director Mo Ali said "from the first time I met McKell David I knew I'd found my Montana".
Review from Independent reads " Director Mo Ali has an obvious flair for action – but little instinct for story or characterisation. At times, his new film plays like an episode of Grange Hill as if directed by Quentin Tarantino ".
Empire Magazine gave it 3/5 stars in their review " Tougher than a box of nails, this is a brassy revenge thriller that refuses to pull its punches "
