Shopping (1994)

You've run out of options, no school, no job. Steal a car, smash a shop with a heavy car and reap the proceeds!. This movie is about underground England. The causes, the benefits, and the result of a life of 'crash and carry'.

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>

Let's Do CRIME!!!
2 December 2001 | by (Alaska) – See all my reviews

Ah yes, Shopping, after watching it for a seventh time tonight, I truly realize it's a horrible movie. A prime example of why you shouldn't just buy a movie because someone you like is in it, or else you end up with this one...and "White Squall" So why is this movie so...bad? Well, I'll admit, I'm a female who lives in Alaska, so naturally, I won't understand the English sub-culture. Plus, car chases and bad accents just don't do it for me...any more. It seemed like the writers of Shopping really really really wanted a catch phrase to be associated with the film, so instead of focusing on one really catchy one, they throw out a bunch of mediocre ones, hoping they'll do, and they just don't. My personal favorite is when one of the dumber of the thugs joyously decrees "Let's Do Crime!!!" While happily raising his bat in the air, sadly he is told to shut up. What's up with that? All in all, it's a boring movie, and there is no plot of point to it. Plus there's no character development. This movie is trite, and don't buy it unless you've seen it. Boy, I learned that the hard way.
