A Reasonably Good Bloke (2015)
A REASONABLY GOOD BLOKE is an unconvincing thriller made in London. It was shot in black and white for no real reason, an attempt to stand out perhaps but one which just makes the film look cheaper than it really is. Certainly the director has some ambitions here but they remain unfulfilled thanks to the dullish script and wobbly acting from the lead. The plot is slow and talky and the film never really grips or involves as it should; it's not really worthwhile at all, just endlessly tedious.
This is most definitely a dark comedy thriller, drawing you in from the beginning and keeping you enthralled to the very end. The start of the film had me laughing and enjoying the dynamics between the characters, then the tension builds to an unexpected twist at the end. The black and white style of the film is reminiscent of an Ealing comedy. This group of paralegals find themselves heading along a dangerous path into a world they should have avoided. The film has an edgy and gritty feel and the characters draw you in and leave you feeling tense as to what is going to happen to them. Therefore, this is a must see film from this unknown writer and director who has used the largely unexplored world of paralegal practise.
I went into this film thinking ' it's going to be a boring film that some unknown guy made for fun'. I was so wrong: This film was absolutely brilliant!! The storyline was suspenseful, it kept me entertained and on the edge of my seat throughout, the characters were both funny and relatable, and the B&W cinematography gave it a classic, gritty feel which went well with the plot. Unlike most films that come out today, it relies heavily on its story and character development rather than special effects and style. The South London exterior locations felt more genuine and gave the film a realistic atmosphere similar to low budget 80s films.

If you're a fan of old-school crime films, watch this. You won't regret it.
