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.

Growing up in London I know full well the lifestyles of many depicted in this cinematic experience. But as I get older these hood films become more harder to watch. Ashley Walters proves his diversity from previous leading roles in Bullet Boy and Sugarhouse, that he can be a convincing antagonist. Not to drift off topic from the movie itself, but I feel that since the release of Kidulthood there seems to be a trend with these gritty street flicks throughout the past decade.
With that being said this flips the script with the majority of the female cast showing the unfortunate lives of young women in Britain. It's a shame that the events that take place in this storyline aren't that far-fetched from the reality we are surrounded by worldwide.
It's honest in its depiction of bullying, drug addiction and sex labour whilst providing a cleverly told plot with a soundtrack mirroring the visual anarchy. Recommend for those with a strong stomach, not that there's any gore in this picture..but it will challenge your ideals of a peaceful world.
