Neat Movie
2 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

My favourite short movie. Probably because I am also a Pakistani living in England and know and have met the kind of people depicted in the movie. Particularly the wannabe "American Gangster".

The acting from the lads was good and the dialogue to be fairly accurate of the kind of talk you expect from lads of that age. What made this movie particularly more interesting for me was the fact that some of the street scenes were filmed in my home town, just 5 minutes from where I live. It even showed my regular video-rental store! So it was fun to be able to recognise the locations.

The one gripe I have with this movie is the accent of the main black guy. It was a bit too "posh" for my liking. Overall, it was enjoyable with a nice ending that sees the wannbe gangster get his comeuppance.
