Anyone who loves British films will love this.A fantastic film that is at times violent, sentimental and hilariously funny with some great diologue that you will find yourself quoting again and again, (or is it just me?)The cast is full of characters from the Geordie screws to the London Gangsters who are banged up in Durham Prison.Roger Daltrey is great in the title role and the soundtrack is full of some seriously good rock songs that really relate to the story. This film for some reason is not as well known as Scum and Quadrophenia but is up there with both as a classic movie of this era.
Roger Daltrey plays the part of McVicar with scarily realism - he really does portray the image of a no nonsense hardman who will do virtually anything to get what he wants. This is one of my favourite films and lives upto what you would expect of a Who Films production and comes with the obligatory excellent soundtrack to complete this quality and sometimes nailbiting film.
Im in my thirties now and this has been my favourite film since a teenager! This is a true British movie that has been overlooked in the past but is in the same genre as Scum or Caines 1960s flicks. I put it into the category of a gritty arts film. It has a powerful soundtrack and agressive & forceful acting, even though the actual physical violence is none existant.....it is implied which make this film even more powerful.
Buy this film immediately....I guarantee you wont be disappointed! I only wish Mcvicar was available on DVD as my old VHS tape has now worn out as I have watched it again and again!!
