Pusher Review

As one might expect, the flashy UK remake of Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher ends up being a mostly pointless exercise, adding a tonne of shallow style but very little substance to the proceedings. Director Luis Prieto pushes the source material through that Guy Ritchie gangster movie filter, and in the process robs his remake of the gritty naturalism that made the rough around the edges original work.
