Feels like a student film. But definitely not as bad as it's overall rating suggests.
It is by no means the worst film in the world. For a start, it has an actual story.
But everything about it feels like it is a straight-to-TV movie or a students university project. However, it is shot well, teenagers would probably like this and thankfully its not that long (80mins). The story is beyond simple and laughable at times and the performances are definitely done to the best of their abilities.
It's like a VERY low-budget urban London version of White Men Can't Jump.
It does have a nice surprise with a young Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy from Game Of Thrones) playing the token white gangster.
