Exclusive Trailer For The Liability
Tim Roth goes gangster

Tim Roth plays a take-no-prisoners, happy-to-tie-corpses-to-trees hit man in the upcoming British gangster flick The Liability, and here's the exclusive trailer to prove it.

Telling the tale of a 19 year old desperately trying to earn a few quid to pay back his unforgiving dad (played by Peter Mullan), it sees relative newcomer Jack O'Connell as unlucky teen Adam and Tim Roth as the hit man who takes him under his wing.

Playing The Girl - no really, her character is called 'The Girl' on the cast list - is St. Trinian's alumnus Talulah Riley, with Lost In Italy's Craig Viveiros in the director's chair. 

As you'll see from the trailer below, the tone is very much in the vein of Lock, Stock and the like, with humour intrinsically wrapped up with all the twists and the turns and the killing and the backstabbing and the what not. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comment box below.

 

The Liability is out on February 22.

Your Comments

Great chemistry but lacks direction.
The film about a killer wanting to retire, and a hapless kid wanting to succeed him is a good one. The film about regret, revenge and human-trafficking is barely hinted at, and gets lost behind extended scenes of dark-humour. Still, at least it's not 'Kill List'. More
