It's not often that I go trawling through bargain bins for DVD's, especially in cheap supermarkets, but on one occasion, probably more than two years ago now, I did just that and spotted two films that looked like they might not be the utter tripe that usually fills these baskets. One of these was Empire, which as I recall cost me the princely sum of £2. However, still nervous about the source of these films, they've sat on my shelf at home until now, untouched. I kept meaning to watch them but... well, you know, something better always came along. However, at the urging of my wife, we finally sat down to watch one of them and selected this one. Despite the decent-looking cast list, I was braced for the worst though.
