Bonded by Blood is a 2010 crime film directed by Sacha Bennett and starring Tamer Hassan, Vincent Regan, and Adam Deacon.[1] It is loosely based on the Rettendon murders in 1995.


In 1995, drug suppliers and career criminals Tony Tucker, Patrick Tate and Craig Rolfe were murdered by shotgun fire, whilst waiting in a Range Rover in Rettendon, Essex. The film charts their rise to become the most prolific dealers and feared criminals in the south of England, maintaining their empire with fear and violence.
