Brit-crimer is its own worst enemy…

For all its desperate attempts at tension, suspense and edge, this Brit-thriller is dismally dull.

Two men – club-owning businessman Ian (Kenny Doughty), and assassin Issac (Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson) – are separately ordered to kill each other.

Able to track their opponent's location via GPS, they have 12 hours to do so or loved ones start to suffer.

In theory, it sounds promising. In execution, it's more like a shoddily scripted student project, with a plot that meanders into inanity and characters so bafflingly banal that they may as well be made out of papier mache.
