Alternate Versions

The UK release was cut, prior to formal classification the film was submitted to the BBFC for advice in an unfinished form - at which stage the filmmakers were informed that the film would likely receive an 18 classification without cuts. Following this the distributor sought and was given advice on how to obtain their desired 15 classification and during the post-production stage cuts were made to remove an aggressive use of very strong language ('c**t'). When the finished version of the film was submitted for formal classification, the aggressive use of very strong language had been removed, and the film was classified 15 without further cuts.

Sket
14 August 2014 | by natashabowiepinkySee all my reviews

For those who care, a 'sket' is a slang word for a young woman who sleeps around and is a bit... rough for all intents and purposes. So, now you know.

The plot revolves around a Geordie lass who's recently moved to London, and her exploits with a girl gang she joins, mainly so they can help her get revenge on the drug dealer who killed her sister. You wouldn't think this by reading the back of the box though... which references no-one but bit-part-player Ashley Walters (From So Solid Crew and Kidulthood) and makes it out to be a very different film. There's marketing, and then there's blatant lies.

What a grimy, depressing place inner city London looks. Rubbish everywhere, rundown buildings and yobs lurking behind every corner. Something tells me they didn't have to make much of an effort with the set decoration for the atmosphere they wanted. What transpires in this place where life is cheaper than a bag of crack, is nothing new or interesting. The acting is okay, the story is seen-it-all-before, and the obnoxious wall-to-wall rap songs nothing short of a headache.

I have little else to add. What the makers have done is taken segments from every 'street' drama set in our capital city ever made, washed, rinsed, hung them out to dry, then stuck them together and try to pass it off as something new. Sorry folks... it didn't work. 5/10
