    A very polished, interesting and insightful drama is the perfect description of "Hustle". As a British TV viewer it is very encouraging to observe a very modern, slick drama. The direction of the piece is very new-wave with exciting camerawork and colourful cinematography. Adrian Lester is very comfortable and evokes much presence as Mickey Briggs. His past experience in high profile work alongside John Travolta, Emma Thompson, Kathy Bates and Billy Bob Thornton (in Primary Colours) shines through, as he confidently outshines the rest of the cast. The director of "Hustle" has taken a very modern view and adaptation of great con and heist movies. He uses slo-mo shots, stops time and allows the actor to look into the camera and give an explanation of the con. All these techniques engage the viewer and much interest is offered because of this. There are also many twists in the series which increases the interest in the drama. It's very impressive and the characters are so immediately interesting that you cannot help yourself from watching again and again.

    As British dramas go, it's one of the best.
