Saw it on TV and didn’t see the first 20 minutes so maybe I missed something but it didn’t grip me. Liam’s accent is annoying, too obviously put on and really not needed. Not sure about the police versus Liam interaction and the dialogue was a bit rubbish. Also the camera work doesn’t get me going, not a big fan of shaky.
Having said that there was some realism about the action and at least some of it was thrilling with a fair amount of suspense.
It’s an interesting look at sex trafficking in a way I’d not seen before and that’s always a good thing. Pointing the finger at these things is useful if it encourages discussion. Not sure if this does.
Watch if on TV?
Probably miss it on TV. Wasn’t fun enough.
