Set in Glasgow Scotland THE PURIFIERS is an attempt to ape Hong Kong martial arts movies from a British perspective. Director Richard Jobson (who enters the movie industry after an unusual career arc saw him spending time in punk band The Skids before becoming a television presenter) trains his cameras on a bunch of outsiders known as The Purifiers. Together the team of three men and three women form an uncanny alliance as they battle it out against rival gangs in a BLADE RUNNER-esque future Britain. Reminiscent of Walter Hills seminal 70s gangland tale THE WARRIORS Jobsons film draws some notable performances from his gang of young actors with Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS) among them.
