Truly,truly, truly awful!!!!!
5 May 2013 | by (Wiltshire) – See all my reviews

I had lost sight of how bad a film could be.

I am genuinely lost for words and would not know where to begin describing how appalling this film is. However, I'll give it a shot: It is a plot-less mess, that hopes to somehow redeem itself in the 'arty' (read sh*te) editing.

Suffice to say this film could be used as torture mechanism, water- boarding would seem like a month in the Maldives.

Please spare yourself the need to have to write a review by avoiding at all cost.

'The Grind' really does plumb new depths of badly shot banality. It also re-defines what can be called a 'film'

I like gritty, I love 'Deadman's Shoes' (9.8/10 for me) but for f*ck's sake, don't expect anything remotely watchable or anything with a semblance of cohesion or meaning.
