Hilarious - Nice Work Deacon
21 March 2011 | by nosiruSee all my reviews

Anuvahood is an Urban Comedy film Directed by Adam Deacon. <-- (His First Full Length Film) This film is about a boy named Kenneth (call him 'K') Fletcher. He has just left his job and now wants to be a respected gangster & rapper, soon he realises that he's just another wannabe bad boy… Basically a Wasteman. It's starring Adam Deacon, Femi Oyeniran, Jazzie Zonzolo, Ollie Barbieri, Richie Campbell, Michael Vu, Will Johnson, Ashley Walters, Paul Kaye, Eddie Kadi, Richard Blackwood & Jocelyn Jee Esien.

SLIDER'S REVIEW:

From the title "Anuvahood" meaning Another Hood) don't go thinking that is going to be like Kidulthood or Adulthood. I thought this was going to be a parody but it's nothing like that, it's a funny comedy that does its job to entertain and it doesn't take itself too seriously (and neither should you). All the actors/actresses did their best to bring the audience to laughter and a good job I think they did (lots of LOL moments). As this is Mr Deacon's first film he's directing and acting I will happily give him a B+ for effort. This film does resemble the one of 'Friday' (ice cube film) because I have seen story lines like this before. Anuvahood is just the UK having a go at something similar.

The humour been displayed is wild and exciting every opportunity they had to throw in something remotely funny they did. Every new character comes with their own aura that added to the comedy. Even the serious scenes had a way of keeping it light & not too heavy.The slang (lots of it), dress code, music and cinematography all fits in well together, it's really London like but the problem with that is it's going to feel like it was made for a specific target audience. Some people from other parts of the country/world may not understand it (hopefully they will).

Adam Deacon does brilliantly as K, he was a believable actor who life on the estate went from bad to worse. He was able to make the audience laugh and be on his side at the same time. His bestfriend TJ (Zonzolo) does his best to make us laugh but had the over the top sort of feeling in some scenes. You have to keep watching to understand Tyrone's (Campbell) funniness, he is loud, fast talking & in your face at first but then when he gets in his strides he was pure comedy to watch. Bookie (Oyeniran) was also an enjoyable character to watch, all you needed from him was a barrel of assault at K to make you laugh. I for one was not buying Enrique's (Barbieri) accent. I didn't like his character, it seemed forced (this not the JJ I know from Skins). The rest of the cast do an applausable job on screen. Good Performances.

Cameo Appearances: Lethal Bizzle, Giggs & Mz Bratt + More

#Overall: Barrel Of Laughs (Support UK Films & Go Watch It)

ONE FAVOURITE MOMENT IN THE FILM: The scene where K comes out of Tyrone's block and gets approached by a gang who don't recognise him until he says 'allow me'.
