Mona Lisa meets Kill List in this brilliantly dark and moody British crime thriller, starring Four Wedding’s John Hannah like you’ve never seen him before.
Reminiscent of Neil Jordan’s crime classic Mona Lisa, with a criminal trying to redeem himself after getting out of prison, and recalling the gritty, unnerving feel of Ben Wheatley’s cult hit Kill List (and featuring performances from brilliant Brit actors from both those films, Struan Rodger and Cathy Tyson), The Marker is a stunning, singularly dark excursion into the Birmingham criminal underworld that is not for the faint-hearted.
Frederick Schmidt – a Tom Hardy in the making – gives a superbly controlled performance as a man attempting to atone for his sins; while John Hannah, fondly remembered for his role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, quickly obliterates all memories of that film as Schmidt’s blisteringly vicious nemesis.
Writer director Justin Edgar keeps a tight hold on proceedings as Schmidt’s plans to make amends starts to unravel, imbuing the film with a palpable, discomforting sense of dread and menace, and ramping up the tension to deliver a powerful, violent and hard-to-take-your-eyes-off thriller.
The Marker is an impressive addition to the recent slew of fiercely impressive British crime films including Hyena, Starred Up and Snow in Paradise. But be warned – you’ll never look at John Hannah in the same way again.
The Marker releases on DVD, TVOD, and digital download 9th October, courtesy of Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.
