Après huit années d'absence, Richard et son frère cadet Andy, légèrement attardé, sont de retour dans leur ville natale. Une petite bande de dealers minables fait la loi, les mêmes que quelques années auparavant avaient brutalisé Andy. Si Richard est revenu, c'est pour se venger. Commence alors une implacable croisade sanguinaire qui n'épargnera personne.

Très bon film non denué d'humour d'ailleurs, et les bonus dont une interview du réalisateur, valent vraiment le détour. Nouvelle preuve que le cinéma d'outre manche se porte à merveille, et on est fort heureusement bien loin des films de genre américain formatés et aussitôt digérés ! Nul doute que ce "Dead man's shoes" ne vous laissera pas indifférent.
Le film ne perd pas de temps à expliquer "pourquoi?" et "comment ?" en début de film, donc on se retrouve très vite pris au jeu et on attend pas longtemps avant de voir un EXCELLENT Paddy considine en action.
C'est, pour ma part, un très bon point.
Un gros point aussi pour les petites originalités "visuelles" bien travaillées, sans abus, qui améliore grandement la qualité du film.
Les bonus sont super aussi.Le son et l'image impeccable.
Rien à redire, ça mérite un 5 éoiles !

Fortunately, this movie is by independent filmmaker, Shane Meadows. The results are close to perfection.
One of the things that is so striking about this movie is the almost painfully drab reality of the characters and setting. No fast paced, sexy characterizations here. Check out the almost comical scene wherein the gang leader, portrayed by Gary Stretch, is handing out the most pathetic array of weapons you've ever seen to the gang members at his house. You'll never see anything like this on film again.
All the actors deliver top shelf performances. You get the impression that they acted well beyond their abilities on this one. Gary Stretch, as pointed out by Meadows during the audio commentary, was almost too good-looking for his part. However, he overcomes this "liability" and delivers an outstanding performance. Paddy Considine, who is physically unassuming and somewhat slightly built, delivers one of the most menacing performances that I have ever seen.
Add to all of these performances a surprising twist towards the end of the movie and you have a winner. This one stayed with me long after I finished watching the first time. I have since gone back to it again and again.
Check it out.
The only subtitle option on the disk's language setup is Spanish, but after some experimentation I found good news: the disk has English closed-captioning that can be accessed through your TV's CC feature. Since I was watching the DVD on a BluRay player with a HDMI connection, I had to unplug the HDMI and patch the player into my TV with standard 3-prong AV cables. I activated the TV's closed-captioning and the English titles came up. As is often the case with the CC feature, a few of the subtitles weren't exact translations, but most were, and I was finally able to enjoy the entire story.
The movie itself is a dark psychological thriller that builds steadily to its devastating conclusion. Richard is a veteran who has come home to Matlock in Derbyshire after serving in the Parachute Regiment. He drifts around the edges of town with his mentally challenged younger brother, Anthony, taking up residence in an abandoned farm. Richard starts visiting the haunts and hangouts of the local gang of drug dealers, subjecting them to a campaign of harassment that starts as a series of disconcerting but harmless pranks and soon escalates relentlessly into intimidation and violence as it's revealed, through flashback, that the gang brutalized Anthony while Richard was away in the Army. The violence in Dead Man's Shoes is gruesome, but it's underplayed and not particularly explicit; the movie's real gut-punches come from the realizations of Richard's motivations and the depth of his feelings for what happened to Anthony while he was gone.
Some viewers seemed to be disappointed in Dead Man's Shoes as a slasher flick, which it isn't, and others seemed impatient with its pace, which isn't slam-bang. Richard's revenge involves no big orange explosions and there are no lingering shots of cartoonish blood gushing from open wounds. Some were repelled by the movie's brutality, which is undeniable and for which Richard himself seeks release. Dead Man's Shoes is not for all tastes, but for me at least it was a powerful and haunting examination of the terrible effects of guilt and grief on the wounded soul of its protagonist.
Richard (Paddy Considine) is a paratrooper that is on leave from his service and decides to return to his hometown and clean up a few loose ends. He embarks on a crusade to exact his revenge on the hometown bully's who ruthlessly picked on his younger mentally handicapped brother while he was away. Richard, one by one, targets each of his brother's tormentors and quickly becomes a terrifying angel of vengeance.
Dead Man's Shoes is not a movie that you can simply just watch and not feel some sort of attachment to the story. Almost everyone has either been a victim or has known someone that has been bullied in their life. This is the type of story that grabs you by the throat and forces you to relive those emotions while you feel justice for the tormented. A beautifully written story with top notch acting, Dead Man's Shoes shines as a brilliant film with fistfuls of redeeming values all put together in one wonderful package.
