Total Savagery

Violence goes way beyond the average crime drama. Its more akin to a horror movie than your typical action. Its even more violent than the Raid 2 (creator's previous crime work). Every shooting has explosive torrents of gushing blood and splatter that would make Tarintino blush. Heads are completely annihilated point blank fully onscreen, men are shredded by so many rounds its impressive. Theres are gruesome torture scenes (arguably most horrifying a man grilled alive). Incredible fights with so many broken limbs and smashed faces and creative use of scenery (an ashtry to the teeth followed by being bashed into a bartable inducing cringe). Combine that withbthe constant profanity typical of British crime dramas and drug use with a pinch of sex and you got some fine strictly adults only entertainment with excellent coreography, engaging characters and dialog, a complex plot that never feels too confusing, and a great sense of tension. Hard to believe this is based on a crappy obscure PSP game.
