Read Amber Wilkinson's film review of Spivs

The Featurette has interviews with actors, writers and producers on the nature and development of the story as well as the choice of locations. Some aspects are amusing, such as Dominic Monaghan's account of his stunt with the groin protection in place. Those involved talk about the film rather than compliment each other, as is so often the case.

Part of the original plan for the film was to shine a spotlight on the world of human trafficking, we hear, but that in itself is not discussed much. The director makes some comments about the characterisation of the conmen, which doesn't tell you much about how real conmen work, either.
