DVD Review – Urban Hymn (2015)

Urban Hymn, 2015.

Directed by Michael Caton-Jones.

Starring Shirley Henderson, Letitia Wright, Isabella Laughland, Steven Mackintosh, and Ian Hart.

Synopsis :

Set against a backdrop of the 2011 UK summer riots, a determined social worker encourages a young offender to develop her singing talent.

Urban Hymn is a drama certainly singing from a worthy enough song sheet. The film details the sort of youthful (and not so youthful) rage, delinquent activity and anti-social lawlessness that marked much of the UK riots of summer 2011. It aims to bring a clear sense that this sort of rage needs to be understood and the disenfranchised need to be inspired to do something more productive with their time other than looting and robbing. It’s only partially successful in this, getting bogged down by a fairly old-fashioned style of formatting and direction. Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, Doc Hollywood) is an experienced director, but this picture has a fairly flat-footed delivery when,

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man episode 1 review

Writer: Neil Biswas

Director: Andy De Emmony

Cast: James Nesbitt, Eve Best, Sienna Guillory, Amara Karan, Joseph Gatt, Steven Mackintosh, Burn Gorman, Mark Ebulué and Darren Boyd.

Synopsis: The life of troubled London cop, D.I. Harry Clayton, takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious woman gives him a bracelet that seems to allow him to control luck. Will he use it to bring a killer to justice or win at the casino?

Verdict:

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is a curious and interesting concept when first faced with its premise and setting. Not only has the mastermind behind Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men channeled his creative genius into a new television series, but it also happens to be a British crime drama starring hilarious Irish actor James Nesbitt. However, this beautiful mixture of components actually forms something quite unique and entertaining.

The episode starts off by introducing the audience to Harry Clayton,

Happiness? More or less. Sky’s new Fantasy crime thriller stars James Nesbitt as a detective with luck on his side...

You can imagine the commissioning meeting that led to this one: “Whaddya got for me?” says a cigar-chomping exec, “another detective show? Where’s the super-powers? We gotta have super-powers. Get wassisname, the Spider-Man guy, pay him to come up with a new super-power.”

And so Stan Lee’s Lucky Man was born. Possibly.

Aside from his name and a requisite cameo in episode one, it’s hard to tell the extent of Stan Lee’s involvement in Sky’s new fantasy thriller. The IMDb gives him neither a writer nor a story credit on the show, yet press cuttings are calling it Lee’s UK television debut. Perhaps his role was like that of Peter Dinklage’s character in Elf, a trouble-shooter shipped in to provide a killer idea.

To his great surprise, this lucky charm seems to work and Harry sees his fortunes begin to shift. However, this kind of luck comes with a price and soon

Toronto Film Review: ‘Urban Hymn’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Urban Hymn’
Competent if pedestrian “Urban Hymn” takes a familiar walk down the path of inspirational youth drama. There are no surprises on hand in this fictive tale with Shirley Henderson as a middle-class Londoner who tries to mentor a teenage girl with a rough background and likely rougher future. Handled with assurance if no great inspiration by veteran helmer Michael Caton-Jones (“Rob Roy”), pic looks headed toward modest home-turf b.o. and select niche home-format sales offshore.

Henderson’s Kate is a comfortably situated professional who at midlife decides to make a major, seemingly backwards career move: Leaving behind years as a sociology lecturer for the much more down-and-dirty job of dealing directly with (she’s warned) “some of the most disturbed” at-risk youth. Hired to juvenile residence facility Alpha House, where she’s primarily used as an educator to wards of the state (and among them just those few young
