I was very surprised at the rating of this movie. I just loved it (the last half hour excluded). "Sorted" has a surprisingly high production value and it easily looks like an expensive movie. There are some great club scenes that really make you feel like you want to be there, accompanied with nice music, and Matthew Rhys did an excellent job.
There is however a weak script and the previously mentioned ending which ruins all the potential this movie had of being a cult classic. Tim Curry in a bizarre and unnecessary role that screams of stupidity and predictability, the whole thing is just so unbelievably bad it physically hurts. Sad, could have been much more. 6/10
