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?

Adulthood is yet another crime/drama film from UK which tries (and fails in my humble opinion) to capture street life. It is obviously written by a person who has no idea about London underground. Shame that person is the very person who is the main actor, director and writer - Noel Clarke. I must admit I had higher hopes for this film when I saw Noel among the list of actors. Unfortunately I must say that Noel's acting in this film is of the same "quality" as his directing and writing - POOR.
Seriously, this film has no meaning, no message, nothing. It is a film made for a sole purpose to make something out of nothing. Usually such attempts result in - NOTHING. Luckily there are people who have no brains all around the world, so I guess people behind this project target that of audience.
If you are a teenager fool of anger, and/or you can identify with aggressive gang or drug-dealers wannabes, or small-scale criminals, this film might be for you, if you are a person who wants SOMETHING of artistic value, you might want to try some other (crime) film. This is yet another film for which I really wish I could have given a zero, if I could...
