Amazing film
19 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kidulthood is a sharp reality. The reviewers and newspapers simply cannot handle the pure honesty of it, its gritty, British and true. The upper class society have been doing this for years, ignoring exactly what they know is going on. But they still avoid the gangs wearing their hoodies up and jeans round their knees. Kidulthood, although slightly drastic and exaggerated depicts exactly how the teenage generation does business. The name is catchy but could be better. You cant ignore the strength of the acting, and the realness of the language and use of sex references. Because its all honest, the writing is genius and comical at times, with an amazing editing and film structure. I loved it, see it.
