Marking the directorial debut of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels producer Matthew Vaughn, this decent enough British crime thriller is done few favours by its nondescript title. Daniel Craig plays a rising young drug dealer whose ambition is to make some quick money and then retire early to enjoy it. His plans - involving a massive shipment of ecstasy - are complicated by drugs lord Kenneth Cranham, who asks him to find the wayward daughter of an associate (dodgy businessman Michael Gambon). The performances are good, and Vaughn directs with assuredness and aplomb, but there's an over-familiarity about the subject matter that suggests it's time for Vaughn and his crime-movie contemporaries to seek inspiration elsewhere.
