Bull (2021) Opens Friday


Sometimes you don't realize how the stupid things you've done will come back

Neil Maskell is chilling as BULL a former mob hitman. He has returned after 10 years to get vengeance on those who wronged him and to find his son.

This is a mean and ugly film that grabs you by the throat an insists on dragging you along for it's 87 minute run time. It never lets up and never gives you quarter. And while there are bits that don't make sense as we go by the time it ends everything is cleared up.

I've been trying to work out how much to tell you about the plot. I suspect you'll be okay with the blood and severed limbs but there are things going on that I so want to talk about, but I can't, especially since as I write this the film hasn't been in the public eye for less than 24 hours. Let's just say that while I worked some of this out, I didn't work it all out with the result is that the end of the film is deeply moving for reasons that may not be obvious at first.

I think I'm going to leave it there, lest I let details slip that will ruin the reactions as you find things out.

I love this small little gem. Its a great film. And despite the fact that it was shot during the covid restrictions there is no sign anywhere in the film.

One of the great films of 2021.

Highly recommended.
