There is no such thing as a simple plan…
Directed by: John Langridge
Executive Producer: Nina Wadia (EastEnders)
Running Time: 85 minutes
Release Date: 7th May 2012
Four is a story of love, jealousy and revenge.
A businessman (Craig Conway) suspects his wife (Kierston Wareing) of having an affair so he hires a detective (Sean Pertwee) to find the lover (Martin Compston), kidnap him and bring him to an abandoned warehouse. The plan is simple, kidnap, tie him to a chair, scare him a lot and maybe hurt him a little. As the tagline says “there is no such thing as a simple plan” when it gets complicated and ultimately goes wrong.
The wife has also been kidnapped without the husband knowing and tied to a chair in the same remote warehouse. The husband decides to go along with the new plan but the wife refuses to give in to the kidnappers and will not play ball!
Will the wife and lover escape or will the husband make they both pay!!!
There are some great twists along the way keeping the film engaging.
This is an excellent British thriller with some funny moments despite the dark storyline, it is believable and well very acted by all 4 of the characters involved. Sean Pertwee plays the part of the film loving villainous detective extremely well and Kierston Wareing plays the part of wife very strongly. Plus impressive performances by Martin Compston and Craig Conway.
I highly recommend this film.
Available on DVD and Blu-ray from the 7th May 2012.
