- UK release: 30 January 2015
When JR (Thwaites) is locked up for a misdemeanour, he gets protected by notorious criminal Brendan (McGregor) but finds out that Brendan's protection has a price. Clichéd Aussie crime story, in which an actress as good as Vikander is reduced to mere eye-candy; a dull and derivative misfire.
