Patriarchs of a small crime family, father and son Bill and Karl have just been released from jail, but all is not well on Down Terrace. Their business is plagued with infighting - Karl is sick of his old man's philosophizing and preaching, and Bill thinks Karl's dedication to the family is compromised by an estranged girlfriend. To make matters worse, there's an unidentified informant in their midst who could send them all to prison for a very long time.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A grimly amusing portrait of a closed system in which the pressure is building to an explosion.
Fresh: A dark and hilarious thwomping of the whole miserablist British gangster genre.
Fresh: Down Terrace is long on talk but generates its own internal rhythms and pace that makes it feel bracing and vibrantly alive.
Rotten: More the stuff of half-hour sitcoms than feature-length films.

I was looking forward to a lively British action/crime romp but instead found a very "indie" talkabout. This may have been a good movie, but I was looking for some relaxing and funny action (e.g. Lock, Stock, Gun and 2 Smoking Barrels) and scene after scene of conversation did not make this entertaining at all.
