What a kick off
4 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kicks is a film about celebrity obsession and escaping from a dead end world. Nicole and Jasmine are two teenage girls obsessed with footballers particularly one Liverpool star, Lee who is about to transfer to a big club in Spain.

Nicole is working class from a broken family background. Jasmine lives a more affluent life yet both are determined to live the life of a football WAG and hang out at nightclubs frequented by footballers.

One night they encounter Lee for what they think would be a night of sexual passion but instead find out about the perversions of young rich, famous men who are more interested in humiliating these women. Nicole takes revenge by tying up Lee and finds that her obsession was unhealthy and has left her crushed.

This is a micro budget film with hints of social realism. Some of the acting especially by the actor playing Lee is wooden. The story is slight even padded out although there is more than a hint of the film 'Misery' in the later part of the film. An intriguing film but not always interesting.
