Average cockney crime caper
5 December 2000 | by Robin KellySee all my reviews

Most cheeky cockney crime capers fail to have a fully developed story and insult the audiences intelligence with incredibly stupid plot contrivances. It Was an Accident is no exception but what raises it a little above the others is the better than usual dialogue, which was almost enough to carry the whole picture but by the last act you're wanting more substance.

As the dialogue is the only thing going for it, it could be more accessible. What's the point of using lots of gibberish only a tiny percentage of the UK population would understand?

Huseyin and the actors do well with the material but the material is too weak and falls apart too easily.
