ReviewSource The Guardian
Review "There is carnage; there is bloodshed; but Meadows coolly keeps everything loping along at an unhurried pace. This is a world where blokes who've known each other since boyhood, and remain childish in everything but innocence, go round to each other's manky houses to hang about, doing not very much...It's a very confident piece of work though, and Meadows impresses a directorial signature on every scene. He is particularly good on the sense of place: the abject semis, the dank avenues, the rusting fences: the untenanted, unpoliced wasteland between suburbia and countryside, which becomes the bad guys' abattoir."

Review "With Dead Man's Shoes, his follow-up to the light-hearted Spaghetti Western homage Once Upon A Time in the Midlands, writer/director Shane Meadows has crafted a relentlessly dark and disturbing vigilante drama in the grim mold of Death Wish (1974). Although it's bleak to the point of ugliness, this graphically violent film is actually more intriguing than it first appears. There's a strong streak of black humor in this reasonably successful amalgam of different genre motifs, which takes place in the despairing squalor of a rural Midlands community. Unfortunately, the absence of emotionally engaging characters, combined with the cast's thick, unintelligible accents, undermines what could have been a taut and provocative exploration on the moral price of vengeance."
