BAD DAY 2010, Claire Goose, Donna Air, Anthony Ofoegbu, Sarah Harding, and George Calil. Filmmaker Ian David Diaz delivers giving us a gritty throwback homage to 1970s cop thrillers, the brutal slaying of an undercover cop's (Claire Goose in one of her greatest performances to date) daughter and the two cops assigned to bring her in (shared by world weary detective Ofoegbu and rookie Air) have more at stake than meets the eye. Diaz's script is above average in its no-holds barred fights and twists in the plot. High adrenaline from the start with one of the most violent opening moments of any movie in recent memory that continues in a brisk pacing with neon cinematography by Alan Dunlop and brooding score by Dominic Glynn has a unique look and sound. Ofoegbu deliver, in my opinion, an award calibre performances in this flick that's more than a cut above the rest. Produced by Diaz and written by Diaz, Ofoegbu and Dunlop it's one of the year's best UK low budget offerings.
Summary: Undercover cop seek revenge on the brutal killing of her daughter
