‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"Capaldi has found a neat way to stand the mafia movie genre on its head at times."

‑ Christopher Null,
"Kind of like 'Swingers' but with colorful Scottish accents!"

"Loaded down with gritty Glasgow atmosphere and authenticity, and works so well as an ensemble piece."
