    Story: The Baseline is the centre of the East London grime club scene and the queue regularly stretches around the block. Danny works on the door – breaking up fights and managing drunk kids. However, when he rescues Terry, the club owner and local gang leader, from a hitman, Danny is suddenly plunged deep into an underworld he had tried so hard to avoid. Danny is promoted to manager, but only on the condition that he turns a blind eye to the shady goings on both on and off the dance-floor. Danny and his girlfriend Jessica dream of setting up their own club, but Danny is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice when he has to choose between loyalty, morality and his own dreams of escape.Written by Miranda Howard-Williams

      I cannot understand why this film has such a low rating when nobody hasa really bad word to say about it.

      Somebody described it as a big budget film.I wonder how many filmsthese days cost $2000000!

      I saw it at the cinema and was gripped from start to finish.I'm notusually a fan of violent films,but compared to some of the truly bigbudget British gangster films made recently this is certainly the best.

      The direction was fast,underlined by an exciting musical sore.

      The acting was excellent especially Freddie Connor,whom I foundmesmerising.I'm sure we will see a lot of him in the future.

      this film is excellent, the performance from (Danny) Freddie Connor wasbrilliant as were the amazing (Terry) Jamie Foreman, the story was notwhat i expected. Danny works on the door of a brilliant grime club inthe centre of east London helping to sort out trouble inside andoutside the club..terry the manager almost gets shot one night andDanny saves him..(bad mistake for Danny) as this is where he is draggedinto the underworld of crime which he really does not want. Danny thenmeets the beautiful (Jessica) Zoe Tapper and then proceeds to fall inlove.. Danny decides he wants his own club with no trouble but is stuckbetween terry and Jessica.. the rest all falls into place with afantastic story line great acting and an overall brilliant film..

      Baseline (based upon another movie called The Grind) is an engaging,big budget gangster film with some romance thrown in that unfortunatelyjust falls apart at the end. Let's just say it. The ending involves acar explosion that looks like Mickey Mouse pulled it off. Oh, come on,a briefcase full of plastic explosives and there is nothing but a fewflames popping out of the window? And if our hero had the capabilityand know-how to pull something like that off, why didn't he do it longbefore things got as ugly as they did? Wouldn't a good shoot out havebeen more realistic and entertaining? It's also simply implausible thatour hero has worked for this evil villain for three years but no trustor repertoire has developed. The big boss treats our hero like he isnothing but a worm and our hero takes it and takes it until theunbelievable ending, which of course involves our hero somehowmagically freeing himself from the torture ropes to suddenly save theday. The first three fourths of this movie is excellent and this wouldhave been a major blockbuster if the last one fourth didn't, well, howshould I put it, suck.

      this film is excellent! The acting from (Danny) Freddie Connor wasfantastic, how have I never seen this guy in other films??? (Terry)Jamie Foreman, bang on as always! Love this guy, always plays the nut'sbosses in films. Really liked the the story too, was somethingdifferent than what's out there already. Was not what I expected. LovedDexter Fletcher in this, he's a proper actor too! Hats off to the filmmakers for getting Gemma Atkinson in there too, she should have been init more though as she's proper hot! Didn't like the way Danny killedoff Terry though, he should have had the balls to walk in to TheBaseline and shoot him and his boys in the head like Tome Cruse does inCollateral.love that movie too! Still was a top UK film and me and theboys loved it! Is there gonna be a Baseline 2?

      I never managed to see this film at the cinema as it had a very limitedrelease, but I picked up a copy on Blu Ray yesterday and was notdisappointed. The quality of the picture and sound was exceptional.

      Firstly this is not your typical 'Gangster Movie', it's not about awannabee gangster trying to ascend the ranks to win favour and to bethe next top crime boss, it's a film about an average guy who works asa club bouncer, and who through no fault of his own is drawn into adark world which he really does'nt want to be part of.

      It's the kind of film you could have seen Gary Oldman acting in a fewyears back, or if it had been based on a true story, Ken Loachdirecting. At no point does it have the typical "Cockney" Gangstercharacture. The film has a very realistic and gritty feel about it,fromthe opening title sequence to the very end. It does not glamorisegangsters and their life style in any way. The film plays heavily onloyalty, and what somebody is willing to sacrifice for friendship. Thefilm moves along at a swift pace and has a really nice haunting score.

      There are a few scenes which are quite violent but are very believable,the realism is a credit to the film.

      The performances were very solid from all the cast, a few familiarfaces cropped up which was nice to see, Dexter Fletcher, Jamie FormanGemma Atkinson and Zoe Tapper. Both the Lead Actors gave very strongperformances throughout the film as did all the supporting cast.

      The only negative thing that I can say about the movie is the explosionat the end could have been bigger, but as there is no commentary on theDVD I can only guess that they had limited funds and they only had onego at it.

      I would highly recommend this small independent film with its attributeto honour, friendship and loyalty. If you buy or rent this movie, donot expect a Mockney Gangster Film.

      A NEW DECADE…..AND A NEW ERA FOR BRITSH GANGSTER FILMS AND THEBASELINE HAS SET THE HIGH STANDARD!!! wow its been too long sense we'vehad a great original British gangster movie and when i saw it in thecinema i was blown away literally!!! its a great start to the decadeand i think its deffently set a high standard for gangster films tocome. and one major fact was i thought that the main actor FreddieConnor who played Danny the main character was fantastic as that parti'm surprised we haven't seen him sooner trust me hes gonna be aBritish gangster film legend. this is only the beginning. plus thesupporting actors are just brilliant in their own right. Jamie Forman,Gorden Alexanda, Dexter Flecher and co are amazing. Zoe Tapper isoutstanding as Danny's love interest for the film. the soundtrack aswell is ear candy so all in all a real treat for British cinema and ihope that THE BASELINE is the start of Freddie Connor booming Career asand actor. so 10/10 a must see film

      Although this film in my opinion doesn't match up to Guy Ritchiesgangster films such as Snatch or Lock, stock and two smoking barrels itis still a well done British gangster film by an almost unknowndirector.

      Compared to the most recently produced British gangster film i lastwatched (Dead man running) Baseline was a well casted film with adecent storyline, apart from an abrupt ending which left medisappointed as the film seemed to build up towards what i hoped was aaction packed ending. Other than this the storyline was fairly wellwritten.

      Although from early on the film was fairly predictable as the audienceis shown a large amount of money in a safe whilst our main protagonist,Danny, is keeping track of the amount of money he has in a notebook.I'm certain that i am not in the minority when i predicted thatsomething will happen resulting in him loosing the money. Apart fromthe predictability in parts Baseline achieved what i expect from aBritish gangster film, it had plenty of violence and a scary,knuckle-duster brandishing crime lord who wants his money.

      Not your usual lovable cockney geezer gangster film, this is far morerealistic and gritty.

      Great performances by Jamie Foreman, Dexter Fletcher, Gordon Alexander,with Gary Stretch, tattooed and minus teeth, and Gemma Atkinson in afleece! Go figure.

      Story just about hangs together and should keep even those with theattention span of a goldfish interested till the end.

      BlueRay picture is lush but there are not enough extras which meansmarks lost out of 10.

      Makes a change from the normal wide boy gangster films out there.
