REVIEW:

Frankie (Danny Dyer) and Charlie (Tamer Hassan) have hit rock bottom as they rob some junkies for their tiny bag of cocaine. Where did it all go wrong?

It’s the 1980’s. Frankie’s fresh out of school and dreams of being someone. When he comes home one night to a blazing row between his Mother and her violent partner, Joe (Andy Linton), he gives him a whack with his cricket bat! Unsure where to turn he goes to see Jim who asks him – ‘fancy some sun?’ He has something that needs delivering.

Marbella, the Cost Del Crime. Frankie arrives at Charlie’s Bar and Charlie unloads wads of cash out of the bag before handing Frankie a few quid for his trouble. Frankie seems lost, but Charlie smiles wide, throws him the keys to the Merc and tells him he can drive him tonight. They cruise down the marina and heads turn. Frankie watches open-mouthed off the balcony at Charlie’s as Carly (Georgina Chapman) lounges in the pool looking tanned and gorgeous. Charlie warns him that her fella, Sammy, is over protective. Frankie looks bashful in the club as Charlie introduces him to Danny (Dan Mead) and Ronny (Eddie Webber) before the Mayor (Arturo Venegas) enters and gives Charlie a wave. Charlie, Frankie and Carly crash on the beach and Frankie’s asked to stick around.

On a speedboat just off a quiet beach Frankie and Charlie wait for Sammy (Geoff Bell). He bottles a waiter in the restaurant and legs to the boat. Sammy and Frankie don’t like each other from the off. Sammy has been helping a flamenco dancer named Carlos (Eduardo Duro) with some trouble he’s been having with Dutch drug smugglers using his house for a looking point. Charlie and Sammy head off to sort the Dutch problem, but return with the Merc riddled with bullet holes and Charlie bleeding. They get tooled up and prepare for war, but Charlie sends Frankie home with a few quid in his pocket. He can’t get on the plane. Frankie is greeted with winks and smiles at Charlie’s Bar and is handed a gun. As the others gun down the Dutch as they leave Charlie’s Bar Frankie shoots a few stray bullets.

Sammy inspects the Gibraltar straights through his binoculars. Dingys full of kids carrying marijuana zip across the waves. Frankie unloads the cargo on the beach and it’s shipped off for packing. Charlie, Sammy and Frankie are requested to join the Mayor at his house and Danny and Ronnie are left out. They arrive dolled up and the Mayor doesn’t mind the marijuana, but warns them not to bring cocaine onto his coast. The marijuana piles up and they live the high life – new houses, cars, clothes and women. At Charlie’s Bar they run out of meat for Sunday lunch and Frankie and Charlie head out and gun down a lamb. The bar applauds them, but Sammy is jealous. He plants Charlie’s watch in Frankie’s coat pocket, but Charlie sees it all and decides they need to go their separate ways for a while.

As Charlie and Frankie lounge by the pool sniffing cocaine they babble rubbish about keeping the Mayor sweet whilst they smuggle cocaine. The Mayor likes young boys and Frankie knows a smack head who would do anything for a fix. The problem is that Frankie’s smack head friend, Sonny (Roland Manookian) is now clean and when they leave him alone with the Mayor he stabs him with a fork.

Carly visits Frankie when Charlie is out and despite him swearing he would never do her – he does, and lets slip that they are meeting the Columbians for some business. As Charlie and Sonny await their latest package the Mayor and his men make it clear that he is not happy with this. Charlie returns angered and they head out to meet the Columbians, but Sammy, Danny and Ronnie are already there and Carly waves to Frankie as they drive off. Charlie’s Bar is boarded up and their house is surrounded by armed police so Frankie and Charlie crash at Ronnie’s. The five of them head out the next day to sort the Mayor out and as they creep through the bushes to his house tooled up they send Ronnie on ahead. When they catch up his head is on a stick.

Months later – back where we started. Frankie and Charlie look rough as they rob some junkies and can’t sell the cocaine because it’s garbage. As they slump outside a grubby bar they see Danny and Ronnie’s wives getting into their car. Charlie tries to offer them a night with Frankie in exchange for cash and when they aren’t interested he robs their car. They sell the stuff in the car and get together enough cash to strike a deal with someone in Cadiz. Frankie heads out in the car, but when he gets their he narrowly misses being knifed. He heads back in a mess. Charlie bumps into Sonny, who’s now running Charlie’s Bar, and arranges a reunion night at the club and him and Frankie get dolled up. No one comes. Rock bottom. Frankie runs into Carly and gets her number after a kiss.

Frankie weighs up his options and makes a call. He arrives at Sammy’s to an unwelcome reception and offers him work picking up a big drop of cocaine. Carly hands Sammy a pistol. On a desolate part of the coast the pair of them head down the rocks to the water – and a stinking sewer pipe. They climb into the oozing brown water and wait for the package – but it’s tiny. Sammy pulls his pistol and fires – click. It’s empty. Frankie smashes his head with a large rock and legs it up the pipe before the police can get to them from their boat. Emerging at the top covered in crap Frankie finds Carly waiting with soap and water. Frankie cleans himself up and sits in the front seat of the car as Carly packs the boot. In her handbag he finds a little silver gun – loaded. Frankie points the gun at Carly, but she’s unfazed. She belittles him with her trademark cheeky smile before Frankie grins wide like a Cheshire cat. He punches her in the mouth and then screeches off down the road leaving her laying in the gutter. Frankie makes his getaway and drives off into the sunset. But, what ever happened to him? Frankie went to Hollywood.

Nick Love’s gangster romp through 80’s Marbella is entertaining from start to finish and full of larger than life characters with large foul mouths and bags of quick wit. The soundtrack is a killer 80’s throw back with Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ the title track. The dialogue is fantastic with boys will be boys banter and abuse with Tamer Hassan and Danny Dyer playing roles they are familiar to. The stand out performance is Geoff Bell’s vile and ruthless Sammy, but like him and some of the dialogue the film isn’t for the easily offended. Every swear word in the book appears at one point or another and from almost every character. Some slick directing from Nick Love in the Spanish sun gives this film a glitzy look with a dirty undertone. The cinematography shows life on the Costa Del Crime as bright and fabulous when the boys are on top and adds a dirty edge to it when they hit rock bottom. The film is never going to be regarded as a cinematic masterpiece, but then it doesn’t aim to be. It’s a man’s man film of boys and their toys that aims to entertain with little or no moralistic merit. If you like guns, geezers, sharp wit and foul mouths then The Business is a great watch. Would you Adam and Eve it?
