Utter drivel !
16 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you liked 'Bend it Like Beckham', or any episode of Scooby Doo, you are associated with the film , or you are a moron, you will like this Movie.

For the rest of us it is utter drivel. Laughingly billed as a Thriller, it is sadly typical of parochial, twee, out-of-touch British-film making at its worst. From the ridiculously premised and clichéd Plot ie Young Asian Fashion executive turns Detective to clear her brother of murder( Think Get Carter meets 'The Kumars'... and there is no great 'twist-ending' as previously stated in a 'friendly' review), to the patronising 'gritty, street' overlay that is about as gritty and street as an episode of Eastenders.

The casting is dreadful, full of hammy British B-List ensemble, cartoon-character Asians with Conti rent-a-yob types as the baddies. The script is cliché-ridden and woefully out of touch. The locations and settings are every media-types view of how London 'really is'. This is nothing like the real London. I know, I was born here and still live here

The Cinematography is average at best and again cliché-ridden ( cue regular backdrops of the Dome, Canary Wharf etc....

But the worst aspect of this whole sorry mess is that films like this are still being made and are an insult to the British Film Industry. Thank God for ' Welcome to the Punch' !
