The Bitter Irony Of Middle Class Do Gooders
17 February 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

One of the reasons I despise EASTENDERS is that it's a politically correct BBC wish fulfillment fantasy made by the chattering classes . For example every black character must be a positive role model which means any character who is a violent psychotic wife beater called Trevor must have a Scottish accent . This means that anyone who is talented and black and in possession of a British Equitity card must relocate to America if they want to play a multi layered character who is on the wrong side of the law . Think Eamonn Walker and Idris Elba to name but two black British actors who hit the big time stateside . After seeing SKET all I can say is we should sometimes be thankful for the PC nonsense the BBC often serves up to us . I now almost look forward to seeing Paterson Joseph playing a Mandela type character in Walford

You'd be forgiven for thinking this low budget movie called SKET was a call to arms by the more right wing elements of The Daily Mail readership . The characters are so deeply unpleasant you might think the makers are setting an agenda to galvanize the great British public in to setting up state run fascist death squads that are still popular in some Latin American countries . I was genuinely shocked that many of the names behind the scenes didn't have traditional sounding British names because watching SKET I thought it might be some sort of UKIP equivalent of a Nazi propaganda film , a sort of THE ETERNAL CHAV . There's no sense of irony however and worse still there is zero entertainment in watching it . One should always be on guard about the ruling class making films featuring the lumpen proletariat because they're wasting their money , wasting the audiences time and helping to bury the British film industry .

You can tell the production team are out of their depth and feel the need to patronize the audience . Stick in a drum and bass soundtrack that will instantly give a real sense of time and place innit bruv for real ? No it won't . Despite their numerous flaws the working class aren't stupid and we're not going to be patronized by middle class posh boys who have led very sheltered lives . As has been pointed out a gang of four girls beating up a couple of blokes on a bus is ridiculous and doesn't ring true . None of this film rings true but some scenes go beyond ridiculous such as a character being so drunk that she has to stagger to the toilet to vomit but literally a minute later she is able to outrun a character chasing her . There's also several scenes where someone just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time in order for the story to progress in to yet another contrived and under developed plot turn . The cast are the usual young team straight out of drama school who over egg the pudding with their chav mannerisms with the only exception being Ashley Walters as Trey who is so despicable you're tempted to switch as soon as he appears on screen . Anyone who watches this awful , badly made film from start to finish is deserving of some sort of valour award . The Order Of Lenin perhaps ? Lenin would have shot the makers of SKET but regardless of your politics you'll feel like carrying out your own summary executions of the production team if you're unfortunate enough to see this movie
