The Business Reviews:

I fully disagree with the vast majority of reviewers so far, this was a nice film. Granted, it may be related to another movies of its genre, but the 80s settings were meticulous in my view. Spanish Guardia Civil with their feared (now banned) tri-corn hats, 80s cars, definitely NOT the modern Malaga airport, and the fashions and language used.I left Cineworld feeling exhilarated - nice soundtrack and nice plot. I would suggest this movie to anybody, Nickname Love has done it again after the magnificent Football Factory. How can anybody call Danny Dyer Z-List?? Granted, he may be no Michael Douglas, but just because he is young, and obviously has a talent for the types of part he tends to enjoy in movies, does not create him a terrible actor at all, in fact, i think the exact opposite.I will definitely be pre-ordering the DVD.


Thatcher's 1980s heralded a fresh Britain where anything was possible – occasions for undreamed-of wealth side by side with the emergence of beggars on the streets, and riots from unemployment and racial tension. 'Our Child Frankie' (played by Danny Dyer) wants to 'be somebody' and not end up like his dad, so he does a tiny delivery job to 'Playboy Charlie' in Spain and gets hired as a driver at Charlie's lucrative nightclub.Nightclub owners have a glamour appeal often shared by politicians, and this was particularly seductive in the 80s. Around Charlie, everything just 'happens' – you are out having a nice time and he is the person who makes it all possible – effortlessly and continuously. 'Welcome to the pleasure dome,' croons the iconic pop song of the day.From here on in, The Business is almost an homage to the decade. A stage on Charlie's boat – who is "so cool his bed makes itself in the morning" - recalls the popular Rio video by Duran Duran. Fashions, cars, dialect and attitudes are all mimicked with loving precision. Alan Durant once criticized melody videos (which began in the 80s) for their tendency to glittery escapism, musical portraiture, and fixing the "currencies of sounds". Charlie fixes the currency of the globe around him, particularly the currencies of crime, girls and drugs, the three things Frankie's father had said him to avoid. But what else is there?Soon they meet up with Charlie's partner Sammy, who is "so difficult even his nightmares are scared of him." Sammy is the financial brains of the operation and his hobbies contain a jealous obsession with his girlfriend Carly, and also killing people. The fact that Charlie largely keeps him under control not only maintains the light-hearted roller-coaster, neon-lit feelgood factor, but sets it apart from movies like Sexy Beast where the grandstanding stars give in to their characters' nastiness rather more readily. The undercurrent of criminal activity, just as in true nightclubs, is one of those things you speak about as tiny as possible, and everytime second in conversation to the finer things of life, such as the recent cocktail or trendiest clothes. Naturally things tend to go up or down rather than stay still, and even though Charlie manages to purchase off the local mayor, things occasionally receive a bit nasty. The skewered head stage is particularly liable to spoil the taste of that glass of Bollinger.Like the globe it portrays, The Business can be criticised as superficial and derivative, but it accurately depicts the headstrong, cheesy, glamour of the 80s and both glamorises and exposes the drug dealing high-life. My guess is it will either turn you off in the first ten mins or carry you along with an adrenalin rush of Fresh Wave dance anthems and snappy one-liners. The slangy witticisms are so consistent, as is each another aspect of this blood, sex and smarm soaked poolside party of a movie, that you may just decide to allow go and snort a full line of it as you identify with personalities you'd never dare to in true life.The 80s had a self-confident brashness guiding how folks presented and expressed themselves, embracing or rejecting the fresh political and social divides. The Marbella look was in vogue – Hugh Heffner, Bunny Women and pop stars. Actually it looks dated and a bit tacky. But have we learnt? If we should view ourselves actually from 20 years hence would we cringe at how prevailing trends suck us in? Even the relatively 'normal' gangsters wives in The Business seem hoodwinked to agree the status quo unquestioningly. The pervasive ideologies of our society are often invisible except in retrospect.Love it or hate it, The Business confronts us with bygone clichés many would prefer to forget, but on its own terms it's a devil-may-care joyride of a film – slide the Ray Bans back and receive hammered on it.


This is an OK gangster romp, very English, and not sure if it will translate well across the Atlantic.Set in Margaret Thatcher's 80s, the story is cute much the same as each another Gangster movie. Someone with nothing, works their method up the meal chain, only to come ruining down again. Frankie begins out as a waster in South London, and becomes a large user in Spain's Costa Del Sol.The location, costume, soundtrack and vehicles are fantastic, really transporting you back to the 1980s, but there are a several duff performances thrown in from some of the actors.The are a several nice lines and quotes in there, but nothing various from Nickname Love's previous film, The Football Factory. Basically it is Football Factory in the sun.It was enjoyable, but pales in comparison to something like GoodFellas.
