A bloke walks into a pub... Six actors punch, kick and wrestle their way through the Wild West of an East London drinking establishment. A formal approach (to choreography, framing and editing) ensures that the viewer is made aware of the choreographed nature of the violence. This violence appears to have no consequences, the actors bodies being as rubbery and invulnerable as those in the TV Westerns that inspired the film.
