Review of "Single & Single"

by Roger on Wed 25th Jul 2018.

Somewhat unconvincing and unsatisfying. Single junior seems made up of contradictions, Single senior is never clearly drawn being a god-like father figure, Brock, the customs secret agent has power beyond likelihood, the shadowy corrupt policeman in the background is a convenient catch-all villain and the assorted Russian mobsters are charicatures.
