Danny Dyer really doesn't like it when Twitter trolls insult his films

Most of the actors acquit themselves reasonably enough, given that most of them are playing time-honoured stereotypes devoid of originality or inspiration. Most of them end up dead, but none of them make much impression.
Holly Weston has the difficult job of playing a potentially complex character difficult relationship with father, falls for his killer, drug problem etc but who actually gets to do nothing more than moan about being stuck in a safe-house. Meanwhile Anouska Mond suffers prettily and Robert Cavanah as the corrupt hedonistic pervert council official leaves the film without even uttering any dialogue.

But this is a film all about Danny. Here he plays a professional man of violence, immune to all that waste and horror. But Dyer just seems ever so slightly amused by everything. Or has Dyer just seen how much Eastenders is going to pay him? At times he makes an expression like a sad little monkey trapped in a cage, leaving me to wonder whether he realised how bad the film was and wondered how he might get out of it.

At other times, he seems to be channeling Joey from Friends with the "Smell the Fart" acting technique. On the plus side, Dyer isn't the worst actor in the film. That dubious accolade is reserved for his bit of crumpet, who is about as appealing and animated as a cabbage patch doll, but far more wooden. The Kemp brothers are far and away the only people trying to act in this film and even they seem to be trying to recapture their Kray twins glory from long ago.

Apart from "Mumbles" the assassin, the level jumps up and down and sometimes the music drowns out the dialogue. Our hero's motorcycle likewise has two distinct engine noises, depending on whether the shot is from the riders or a passersby perspective.
Story-wise, it is a bit pathetic. At first you said you'd been misquoted in the magazine, then you said you said it as a joke. To be fair, I had a column I never wrote. You dictated it to a journalist down the phone? Sometimes I missed it because I was busy. And I trusted a journalist and that actual line is from when I played a pimp in Prime Suspect.
It was a ridiculous line. And I said it, in a jokey, ridiculous way … To the journalist? You know, when you say something that's so ridiculous.
But there is not a misogynistic bone in my body. They obviously wanted to get rid of me, Zoo magazine, so they printed it. Maybe they thought it was funny, or they were sick of paying me two grand a pop for a column I never wrote. I don't know, but I was absolutely devastated. And of course Zoo, the most misogynistic magazine out there, jumps straight on the bandwagon and says:
