Watched this film today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The camera scenes have been thought through for maximum effect. The feel of the whole film is gritty and fast moving. The scene which overlooks Canary Wharf is a new one on me ,it compares old and new London architecture in one scene. I have been to the Heygate estate and think this film thoroughly captures every essence of the area. The film is fast moving and nothing is overdone but is all conducive to the final scene. A Great British Urban Piece along the same lines of Harry Brown which i think was filmed on the same estate but from watching the two you can appreciate the different views of each director.
