This solid thriller sees war veteran Dean Ian Sharp return to his hometown, the aptly named Grimsby. Before the movie has properly started, we know how it will end. The cinematography is amply bold and satisfyingly captures the derelict demeanour of the landscape, a demeanour that mirrors the morbidity of the lives that walk its streets. The camera quietly follows his moving shadow over the undulations of the sand. A slow build-up eventually gives way to a standard action movie shoot-out finale, as Dean faces off against the final baddie with guns a blazing. Jess, meanwhile, spends much of the film trying to escape from her pimp.
