Amateur nonsense
22 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Maybe I'm tool old to appreciate films like this these days (I'm 33), because, for the most part, I found this film both dull and irritating in equal measures.

The kid with the curly hair who looked like he fronted an indie band was a horrible little streak of p!ss. The girl too was a very unsympathetic and unpleasant character. Harry Potter's Ron was about the only character I could have cared less about, but really I couldn't have cared less (Note, I only watched this a little over 12hrs ago and can't remember any of the characters names).

The depiction of them supposedly being off their heads on drugs was amateur, even the smoking didn't look convincing. The build up to the finale was poorly paced and uninteresting. The finale, whilst reasonably rousing, failed to make up for the abundant lack of worth the film had beforehand.

I've read this is comparable to Skins. I've never seen Skins, but have borrowed the first 3 series. After watching Cherrybomb, however, I think I'll politely bow out of watching any. Nearly a day's worth of viewing something that's akin to Cherrybomb seems like a rather dire prospect.

1/10
