Stuff 3.5 out of 5 Stars "If youâ€™re simply after a slice of action and a good laugh, then Lowdown Dirty Criminals could be just the eveningâ€™s entertainment youâ€™re looking for."
James Rolleston (Breaker Upperers) stars in this Kiwi crime comedy about two down-on-their-luck mates whose decision to commit one small felony spirals out of control. From the director of Second Hand Wedding.
When Freddy (Rolleston) loses his job, he and his best buddy Marvin (Samuel Austin) naively conclude a life of crime may lead them to the wealth and standing they desire. But when they mess up their first job, a sequence of events snowball out of control, leading them to their most intimidating enemy yet, The Upholsterer (Rebecca Gibney). The ensuing chaos caused by her two henchmen Semo (Robbie Magasiva) and Roy (Cohen Holloway) on their hunt to find the boys forces them to reconsider their careers as criminals.
