Great to see Danny Dyer is brave enough to make another London revenge movie, Vendetta. Gives us a chance to list a magnificent seven revenge films set in London, and to mention Dyer’s Outlaw out-takes:
Dial M for Murder – Ray Milland plots vengeance on straying wife Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock’s claustrophobic classic.
Get Carter – Michael Caine takes his vengeance-filled 60s London character up north.
Dirty Weekend – A woman who’s had enough takes gruesome revenge on a stalker, then gets the taste for more male blood.
Snatch – Rival gangs all want revenge on each other in Guy Ritchie’s loveable London cartoon-thriller.
V for Vendetta – Wearing Guy Fawkes masks, the people of a future London rise up against a fascist regime.
Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street – Johnny Depp is on a secret mission of payback, using human flesh as his lure.
Circle of Revenge – set on the mean streets of south London, this tough gang movie started life as a series on the internet.
Outlaw – Crummy film made famous by the hilarious commentary on its DVD in which Danny Dyer takes revenge on the critics.
