Bad boys: Bulletproof and the rebirth of the British buddy-cop show

Sky1’s new police drama starring Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke has taken its lead from Us counterparts such as Lethal Weapon, but does it work and is it better than The Sweeney?

Most TV cop shows seem to be in love with the “cold open”, where viewers witness a horrible crime and the lead characters enter the story only after the opening credits – usually in a swirl of yellow police tape, white forensic coveralls and pained expressions.

Sky1’s new armed police drama Bulletproof, which launched earlier this week, bucks that trend. If most shows start cold, it comes in hot, kicking off with its plainclothes heroes Pike (Ashley Walters) and Bishop (Noel Clarke) exchanging blows in a boxing ring. The sparring continues even after they hit the showers. Pike jabs at Bishop over his obsession with his hairline; Bishop responds with some below-the-belt banter about Pike’s fondness for cakes.

Tuesday’s best TV: Bulletproof; Nigeria’s Stolen Daughters

  • The Guardian - TV News
Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters co-star as bickering Bad-Boys-style partners in an elite London thief-taking unit; what happened to the teenage girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014. Plus: Meet the Markles

9pm, Sky1

Co-created by its stars, Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters, this crashy, splashy cop drama casts them as bickering Bad-Boys-style partners in the Nca, an elite London thief-taking unit where Adidas trackie tops and shoulder holsters are seemingly compulsory. The charismatic leads have chemistry to burn when needling each other, but this high-octane opening episode veers wildly between callous and cartoonish as the Nca targets an Uzi-toting, vaguely eastern European carjacking gang who have a heavy dislike of informants.

Exclusive:Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters on new Sky series Bulletproof

In Britain we’re finally witnessing, and appreciating, more diversity on screen – and much of that is down to the wave of television series and films that were produced at the turn of the century. The likes of Kildulthood and Bullet Boy were at the forefront of this movement, and can be accredited as being huge forces in the changing face of entertainment in this country – and stars Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters were, and still are, integral to this progression.

The pair now collaborate in new Sky One series Bulletproof, which follows two best friends and police officers, as they strive to keep the streets safe, and their relationship in tact. We had the pleasure of meeting the two lead stars, and creators, to discuss the way they’ve seen the industry change and develop across the years.

‘I Kill Giants’ Review

Stars: Zoe Saldana, Imogen Poots, Madison Wolfe, Noel Clarke, Jennifer Ehle, Sydney Wade | Written by Joe Kelly, J.M. Ken Niimura | Directed by Anders Walter

I Kill Giants is quite a name for a movie. A really good name actually because with that and the awesome artwork on its poster, I was immediately intrigued…. Based on the comic book of the same title, I Kill Giants tells the story of a troubled girl, Barbara (Madison Wolfe) who believes giants are coming to her town and she is the one to stop them. She has some help in new friend Sophia (Sydney Wade) as well as her sister Karen (Imogen Poots) and the school psychologist Mrs Molle (Zoe Saldana) who don’t initially believe what she is saying.

Those looking for a horror movie full of giant slaying might be a little disappointed to hear that this isn’t that kind of film.

Movie Review – I Kill Giants (2018)

I Kill Giants, 2018.

Directed by Anders Walter.

Starring Madison Wolfe, Sydney Wade, Zoe Saldana, Imogen Poots, Noel Clarke, Rory Jackson, Ciara O’Callaghan, and Jennifer Ehle.

Synopsis:

Barbara Thorson struggles through life by escaping into a fantasy life of magic and monsters.

I Kill Giants, while a decent debut full-length feature from director Anders Walter (based on Joe Kelly’s graphic novel), is an unfortunate victim of timing as by the time the credits rolled I wish I had just re-watched A Monster Calls (one of the absolute best movies of 2016). Both films deal with the similar subject matter of ostracized middle-school children escaping away from reality into a high fantasy setting in order to cope with the struggles of the real world. Here, we have young Barbara (Madison Wolfe) growing up surrounded by her slightly older brothers who basically sit around playing video games all day and generally not
