‘From The Director Of Kidulthood’ aren’t exactly a set of words that inspire confidence when approaching a film. This is yet another British take on a well-worn genre that adds very little to rules and events set out many years before. Comedown sees a group of youths trapped inside a derelict tower block who get taken out of the equation one by one.
The film begins like a spiritual successor to Kidulthood. We are introduced to a bunch of incredibly unlikable characters that seem hell bent on having us hate them. Possibly a technique used to make the kills more gratifying later on, it also serves as a distancing device as we try our hardest to connect with these characters.
