I Against I is a half-baked noirish thriller that slips down more easily that it has a right to given its poor script and insipid central character Ian (Kenny Doughty). Ian is a night-club owner who is suspected of killing gangster boss (John Castle) together with Russian hitman (Ingvar Eggert Sigurdsson). Both are then forced to kill each other by the son (Mark Womack) of the gangster boss. None of the characters are convincing but there’s a menacing feel to the film that makes it watchable as a lightweight thriller with plenty of shouting, knifing, underground car parks and a rather good techno soundtrack.
