directed by Julian Gilbey
United Kingdom 2006

 

Fearing production falling thru, brothers Julian and Will Gilbey chose 100% private financing, thus “Rollin’ with the Nines” is a low-budget film. Production wise it is visible. Most dialogue scenes are single set few actors, with minimum production values, common for low-budget productions. But don’t be fooled by this element. “Rollin’ with the nines” is quiet a good gangster film, and had it had a million pound budget and more professional actors, it would have been recognized as such by more.

Finny, Rage and Too Fine are three gangsters, who are trying to get away from that side of life thru hip-hop music, but when Too Fine is killed, they are sucked back into the world they tried to escape from.

While lacking character depth, the revenge motif of “Rollin’ with the Nines” is clearly outlined and beautifully staged. Even better is the action sequences, which are staged and executed with such brute force.

“Rollin’ with the nines” may be a low-budget amateur film, but its story and action really sucks you in.

Comments Shot in HD, the image looks amazing. No artefacts, strong colors (for video) and shard details.

Sound comes in the standard three formats for Tartan. Go for the DTS, for more "umph".

Additional material includes a great audio commentary by writer and director, going into detail with production. Following a feature length making of documentary, detailing background for film and production elements. Both cover production nicely and adds solid insight.
