Bull

Bull ★★★

Written and directed by Bafta-winner Paul Andrew Williams and starring Neil Maskell as the eponymous protagonist, Bull centres on a man out for pure undiluted revenge against those who attempted to kill him. There’s little wasted footage as he wages on his brutal warpath with the screenplay entrenching clumps of backstory about how everything went amiss. Paul Andrew Williams indulges in no highfalutin aspects, no sense of a filmmaker cramming frames with gorgeous imagery while they strain to discover the narrative. And while the tale itself may not be completely original, it does have a few surprises up the sleeve that push it to be better than most mediocre retribution movies.
