A Complete Joke
2 March 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This terrible film funded off the success achieved by recent urban films such as "Kidulthood" and "Bullet Boy" is some of the most embarrassing footage I've ever seen. Fans of "8 Mile" will remember the classic storyline seeing as it's basically the same except with the inclusion of guns. This cheap and nasty copy of some recent greats reminds me of the blaxploitation films of the 1970s - 1980s all over again. What a shame for Ashley Walters who showed so much promise in Bullet Boy. If you are at all fond of the London music scene, do not watch this film. If you couldn't care less, please don't think this is what it is really like.
