Steven Berkoff film 2010s continued


 


Following roles in major films, Berkoff alternates between mainstream films and cheap cameo roles.

 

 

Strippers vs. Werewolves Strippers vs. Werewolves

A horror comedy directed by Jonathan Glendening in 2012.  But this film is dire.  Bad script, acting, direction, editing etc.  A film with 20 producers is not going to succeed.  One of the worst films I have ever experienced.  Nightmare on Elm Street's Robert Englund and Berkoff are guest stars.  Berkoff appears after six minutes and thankfully after nine he is dead. Not the best three minutes of his acting career.

Berkoff was among known people: Billy Murray previously acted with Berkoff in Dead Cert, Just for the Record and The Rapture and earlier McVicar; Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet in The Rapture and The Krays; Simon Phillips in The Rapture; Joe Egan in Dead Cert and Just for the Record; Coralie Rose in Dead Cert; Shaun Lucas in Big Fat Gypsy Gangster; Mo Idriss in Dead Cert and Big Fat Gypsy Gangster.

It does not end well for Berkoff- was it the strippers or the werewolves?  Do we care?  Best name from the credits, Lloyds de Vere of Onger.

 

RED2 RED2


Bruce Willis revives his role as a RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) member of the CIA alongside John Malkovich and British spook Helen Mirren.  Hit man Byung-hun Lee is hired to kill Willis.

Lee meets Berkoff, in his best Chinese cliché character, but negotiations do not go well and Berkoff is killed by an origami weapon.  Berkoff is on film for under a minute.  Directed by Dean Parisot in 2013.  Brian Cox who plays Ivan was in The Flying Scotsman with Berkoff, and extras David Papova was in The Borgias, Lee Asquith-Coe was in Strippers vs Werewolves, Gino Picciano was in Dead Cert.

Berkoff We still Kill the Old Way

But his age and the number of gang members mean he is overpowered and kicked to death.  His brother, a retired East-End gangster, decides to reform his old gand to get revenge.  Not a bad film to see once, and it had a follow-up film We Will Steal the Old Way, but obviously without Berkoff.



North v South North v South

Steven Nesbit directs this 2015 gang film which went straight  to DVD. Berkoff plays his usual gang leader role about North and South gangs meeting and fighting, but a couple of young lovers get mixed up in the struggle for power.

North v South - the meeting of the gangs

The two gangs meet to discuss how to work with each other to form "the biggest criminal conspiracy the UK has every seen".  Berkoff is Vic Clarke, one of the gang leaders.
