Trivia

Despite the natural chemistry of Andrew Shim and Ben Marshall the two actors almost came to blows during a scene due to Marshall's obnoxious behavior. Paddy Considine admitted in the DVD commentary he had no problem filming the scene at the seaside where he threatens Marshall's character, saying he "couldn't wait to get his hands on the little shit."

Superb,Stunning,and even disturbing
21 July 2002 | by (STOCKPORT, England) – See all my reviews

This is a truly great film, not seen by enough people in my opinion, Shane Meadows is a breath of fresh air for the British film industry, and I won't hesitate to go and see his next film, on the strength, of his last two ( twentyfourseven, romeo brass ) While most british audiences are somewhat ignorant to quality films like this, and would rather watch overrated films like 'Lock Stock...' there is always a hardcore of fans for films like this. Shane Meadows is inspired by the likes of Ken Loach and Mike Leigh, possibly Britain's best independent directors, but Meadows adds a bit more 'cheer' to this film, who says its uncool to have a happy ending? Romeo and Gavin are twelve year old pals, who have a great understanding of each other, and their surroundings, but then their friendship is tested when Morrel ( Paddy Considine ) enters their life, at first he is a pal, but why is a grown man hanging around with two boys? he then wants to date Romeo's sister, little do they realise they are being drawn into a world of obsession, violence and desperation, will it all come good in the end? Watch out for the outstanding performance from Paddy Considine, it really is the best debut from an actor ever!
