Film review: Borrowed Time (15)
Jules Bishop's low-budget Borrowed Time is about a hapless London youngster, Kevin (Theo Barklem-Biggs), a "neet" who burgles the home of Steptoe-like misanthrope Phil (Phil Davis).
The film becomes a buddy movie when the young ne'er-do-well and the old curmudgeon ally against Scouse psychopath Ninja Nigel (Warren Brown).
The story could have been told as a grim social-realist parable but Bishop wisely aims for Ealing-style comedy. Davis excels as the old vigilante with the blunderbuss.
