Seriously, this is my favourite film - and I'm a 'buff'. It makes a mockery of Hollywood when there isn't a single paid actor in this film and yet the performances are utterly absorbing and easily more convincing than those you usually get from so called 'stars of the screen'. The plot draws you into a disturbingly realistic world of Scouse gangsters and the situations they get themselves into. I've made a lot of my friends watch this film, and even the ones who need subtitles still find that it gets under their skin, and they end up asking to borrow it to show THEIR friends, too. All I can say without spoiling the plot is WATCH THIS FILM and see how this kind of drama should be made - You won't regret it!

Shooters is a drama documentary film, directed by Dan Reed for Suspect Device Films. The film is set in Liverpool and used local criminals as actors depicting the lives of local 'gangsters'. It is most notable for having been completely unscripted apart from a brief outline; each scene was improvised and ad-libbed by the actors themselves.—Andy Ward

The best film I've ever seen!!!
This is the Liverpool you arnt shown on T.V
Being a 18 year old lad from Liverpool and having been involved with not the nicest of people around here, the reputation of the actors in this film proceeds them. I must state the storeys we used to hear from lads about these "actors" were mind blowing, these men are real gangsters and for me, that is what makes this film, its sad to see some of the reviews posted here. Granted, this is no Hollywood blockbuster, but how many Hollywood actors have committed murder, extortion and organised drug deals on a major level? Pfft... This is not a film were stars get the dirt from under there nails taken out by a assistant in there trailer, the "trailer" of these men is the street. You cannot expect such formidable men to act like someone in theatre, this is the Liverpool you arnt shown on T.V, this is REAL.
This is a unique crime drama slash documentary type production, All the roles are played by non actors and are some way or other part of the criminal underworld. Loosely based on some events and underworld changes that took place in Liverpool in the 1990's this is a gritty realistic and mostly unpleasant look at that that time. It is also a story of every city or town in the world and their lowlife inhabitants and how their everyday dealings and actions impact on the community and mainly each other. This is an interesting look at gangsters without out the glamorous rose tinted spectacles and it really shows how there is no honour amongst thieves. Don't expect a type of Goodfellas story with a nice musical score, lots of fashion and lots of models. What you see is what you get.
