Played, released in 2006, is a film about the seedy underbelly of London. It depicts the lives of several gangsters and the double-crossing involved in staying afloat while making a living as a criminal-for-hire. After an opening scene, the movie flashes back eight years. The audience meets Riley (Patrick Bergin), who has been instructed by a crooked cop, Detective Brice (Vinnie Jones), to assemble a team to steal an incoming shipment of drugs. Riley suggests Ray Burns (Mick Rossi) as a team member, among others, but when the heist goes awry, Riley pins the death of several other con-men and the thievery itself on Ray. Ray is sent to prison for eight years and when he is finally released, he makes it his mission to seek revenge. The movie was originally intended to be a short film and was made on an even shorter budget. Interestingly, most of the dialogue was improvised.
