In one of East London's most volatile neighborhoods, pride, rivalry and revenge are the only codes on the street. Touted as a British Boyz in the Hood, Bullet Boy is a gripping and authentic drama that takes an unflinching look at two troubled, street-smart boys. Fresh out of jail, 18-year-old Ricky (Ashley Walters, Get Rich or Die Tryin') and his 12-year-old brother, Curtis, struggle to walk the straight and narrow when a minor street clash escalates into an all-out neighborhood war. For Ricky and Curtis, friendships, family and loyalty will be tested to the extreme in a world where guns are a fact of everyday life and boys try to be men before they're even teenagers.

This was a great film. I have been watching a lot of urban type UK films lately and this one is by far my favorite so far. The Uk ghettos are very similar to Canada where I live. When people think of Canada and the UK they don't seem to think there are any ghettos. Where I live in Toronto, Ontario, we are influenced by the States a bit but much more by the sizable Jamaican presence in the area. The film did a good job at depicting how such small issues can grow into something very big and life changing. Ashley Waters is very talented. His performance was very believable.
So far I've seen "Rolling with the Nines"(Sucked), "Kidulthood"(Very good), "Life & Lyrics"(Not too bad, but kinda corny). Does anyone know of any other good movies of this same type to suggest? Peace
