Travis's noir is entirely watchable, but it's only because of to Ahmed's captivating presence.

Too often City of Tiny Lights is let down by an overeagerness to play up its source material, and hampered by unnecessarily showy direction and inadvisable attempts at gumshoe dialogue.

'The Big Sleep' with bruvs. Which isn't an entirely off-putting proposition.

Though pleasant enough to watch, there's something not fully realized about the final product here.

Engrossing, even if it doesn't quite measure up to its promise.

The contemporary London twist gives the genre a shot of adrenaline and a watchable character in Tommy who would merit being seen in more adventures.
