Bull review – a gangland revenge shocker with Neil Maskell on vicious form
You don’t expect soft from Maskell and you don’t get it, in Paul Andrew Williams’s queasy criminal underworldPaul Andrew Williams’s revenge nightmare is a stomach-turningly violent gangland shocker that returns this film-maker to territory he first staked out with his 2006 feature debut, the lowlife thriller London to Brighton. There are brilliant moments here, and Bull is arguably as good as, say, Shane Meadows’s much-admired Dead Man’s Shoes, in a similarly relentless vein.
