Storyline

Lone group of teens, led by recently released joyrider and his disenchanted Belfast girlfriend, strives to leave their mark on "a British city in the near future" while attempting to avoid a rival gang. Scenes of joyriding and ram-raiding, which attempt to portray the addictiveness of fast driving whilst also showing the downside (the effect on the community and ultimately death) Written by Andrew Welsh <andreww@bnr.ca>

Posh kids trying to be hard
2 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The plot: Jude and Sadie form half of an underworld gang who get their kicks, and their living, from the adrenalin fuelled lifestyle choice that once was ram-raiding. Facing the dual enemies of what seems to be the entire London police force, and a rival gang (cue a cockney Sean Bean) led by Sean Pertwee (with an admirable attempt to rescue the film with a Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribbean performance) – Jude and Sadie go from ram raid to ram raid with an incredible inability to appeal to the viewer. The film is littered with wannabe-weighty one liners which fail to rouse anything other than a sigh.

Post Mortem: An awful attempt to make an edge-of-society, dark moody film. The casting is shocking – both Jude and Sadie are far too posh for the criminal underworld characters. Sadie's accent is eventually recognisable as a strain of Irish, sounding slightly like Jerry Adams on helium. This film wants to be an urban Mad Max and ends up looking like what it is – a posh cast trying to play scum and looking embarrassingly out of their depth.
