Rob Cohen takes a lot of crap from critics and to be fair he’s not a great director but he directs usually fun action genre films, nothing amazing but he sticks to what he knows and the man still works after some very bad films so let’s give him some credit.
I’d honestly rank in my all-time top twenty, I now feel the need to try and spread the word about this British, indie, cult classic which sadly has never gotten the love it deserves. The film I’m talking about is 2004’s Dead Mans Shoes. Directed by Shane Meadows, a man that’s more famous for his ‘This is England’ films. It doesn’t feature an all star cast or even a traditional A-list lead actor, but don’t let this dissuade you any, because it has an engrossingly, simple, little story that never grows old even after a dozen viewings.
