Six years after KIdULTHOOD, Sam Peel is released from jail for killing Trife, he realizes that life is no easier on the outside than it was on the inside and he's forced to confront the people he hurt the most. Some have moved on, others are stuck with the repercussions of his actions that night, but one thing's for certain - everyone has been forced to grow up. Through his journey Sam struggles to deal with his sorrow and guilt and something else he didn't expect - those seeking revenge. As he's pursued by a new generation of bad boys, Sam sets about trying to get the message across to his pursuers that they should stop the violence, much like Trife tried to tell him all those years ago. Can Sam stop the cycle of violence and make something positive from the destruction he caused or will his journey into Adulthood end here? Written by

In the scene where Sam fights with a person in the cemetery. The fight scene shows sunlight and shadows in one shot and missing in another. This is repeated while they are wrestling each other on the ground. See more »

Just a cynical ploy to get young people to buy the soundtrack and DVDs by making the cast speak in ridiculous accents and non-sense slang.
You can usually tell when a script was written in a hurry: the events of the film take place over a short period of time, the characters are 1 dimensional and the plot is predictable.
The Danny dyer cameo was the only moment of acting which didn't make me cringe. Adam Deacon, who put in a great performance on Dead Set seemed to confuse shouting whilst using "ghetto" slang with acting.
Having spent most of my life living in west London, I can say that this film resides in the land of fiction. Noel Clark is trying to paint a picture of 'war on the streets' which just isn't true.
Overall, a waste of £13 and 1.5 hours.
