REVIEW: The Toll

Described by director Ryan Andrew Hooper as a “West Walian Western”, The Toll is the latest in a long, crooked line of blackly-comic British crime capers.

At the time it was a welcome change of pace from the no-frills, Liam-Neeson-on-an-x that was dominating the genre. Seven years, though, all that neon is beginning to pall.…
