ESSEX HESIT Film Review
Directed By Steve Lawson
Genre: Gangster - Thriller
Since the Hatton Garden robbery the word heist has become something of a buzz word in British gangster film titles. We have titles out there such as Hatton Garden The Heist, London Heist, The Hatton Garden Heist and ESSEX HEIST.
ESSEX HEIST evolves around JEZ (Glenn Salvage) who runs a garage with employees Andy (Adam Collins) his right hand man, Clive (Dean Leon Finlan) who’s not the brightest spark but is great with engines and Daveyboy (Marcus Langford) a junkie who's got himself in drug money debt. While all the goings-on at the garage come under the careful scrutiny of local crime boss Terry Slade (Steven Dolton) and Jez has had enough of being treated like a Joey.
So when Andy who is secretly seeing Terry Slade’s beautiful niece Stacey (Georgia Annable) is told by her that Slade is transporting a £1,000.000 in cash to essentially pay her off for abusing her as a child, he tells Jez who then cannot wait to step in and nick the cash. Unfortunately for Jez, the heist doesn’t go quite according to plan and the film essentially becomes a whodunit with some nice little fight sequences thrown in.
Whilst some of the dialogue can be a little clunky at times, overall ESSEX HEIST which is written, produced and directed by Steve Lawson on a very limited budgeting is a great little crime thriller that keeps you guessing and engaged to the end. It will be very interesting to see what comes next from production company Creativ Studios, Britflicks will of course keep you posted.
ESSEX HEIST is released on DVD 23 January 2017.
