Payback Season review

The British hoodie genre edges uncomfortably into the world of professional football in Danny Donnelly’s grimy debut.

Rising star Adam Deacon plays a premiership hotshot struggling to keep his shady past off the pitch after running into an old council-estate mate. David Ajala stands out as the psycho-gangsta blackmailing him out of his millions, but the rest of the cast (including World Cup hero Sir Geoff Hurst) is as unconvincing as the soapy teenage script.

Favouring its relentless dubstep soundtrack over its characters, the film feels like more like background filler.
