In the end, Prieto's Pusher feels like a Guy Ritchie knockoff.

What's missing cast-wise is an appealing personality in the sidekick role, and Webb is no match for Mads Mikkelsen.
Pusher faithfully mimics Nicolas Winding Refn's 1996 Danish crime saga while missing its nasty, grungy spirit.
Pusher struggles to rise above standard drug dealer/gangster fare and succeeds, but only in part, thanks to its strong cast lead by Richard Coyle.
There's an ugly, jittery beauty to Pusher, a very fine British redo of a 1996 Danish movie of the same title.
Best part: Colorful Croatian-Danish actor Zlatko Buri´ reprises his role as the jovially menacing foreign heavy out to collect his dough.
If we haven't caught on from earlier films that drug pushing is a thankless persuasion, maybe this is the movie that will pound in the lesson.
