A great British indie gem
7 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you're after a movie that is deeper with a more plausible plot line than the average Kevin Smith film, then Pulp probably isn't for you.

If, however, you want some good British banter, geek-based humour, and a rather ridiculous premise for a storyline, then I'd highly recommend this little indie gem.

The story follows Tony, a struggling comic book writer, and his two best friends Rick and Keith, as they launch The Sodomizer, their last attempt at succeeding in the comic book industry, at the British International Comic Show, whilst working undercover to find a money laundering gang (see, ridiculous storyline). The thing is, the plot quickly becomes secondary to the characters, some less lovable (Tyler) than others, their relationships, and the genuinely laugh out loud moments.

Apart from the slight over-use of the f-word (although I'm probably a little older than the target audience), there really isn't much not to like about this rather silly, eccentric, geek- tastic film. Beats watching episodes 1-3 of Star Wars at any rate.
