Jawbone (2017)


Thomas Q. Napper directs Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Michael Smiley in this drama where an alcoholic boxer puts his life back together in the build up to a brutal unlicensed fight. 

A Ronseal movie. Does exactly what it says on the tin. All the leads are strong, playing to type, the cinematography captures working class South London well, while the final fight is energetically bloody and exciting. Doesn’t reinvent the wheel, doesn’t aim to.
