When Ed is arrested he is shown in a cell. The gaoler is shown wearing Her Majesty's Prisons uniform. Later it was stated that he was released without charge; if that was the case he would have only got as far as being held in police custody, which is run by the police rather than the prison service.

What a shame! I was looking forward to this, as I am a single mother who has lived on a council estate my entire life.
I also quite like Plan B, as my son is a huge fan and I quite like his intelligence as a musician/rap artist.
I was invited to the premiere by my cousin who worked on the movie. He loved it! Not sure how objective he can be though.
It is realistic in the sense that the events do happen in real life. And some of the acting is actually quite good.
But much like Kidulthood and other mediocre attempts at portraying Council Estate life on film, it only shows one shade of the story.
The grim is coupled with the opposite in real life. It is not all doom and gloom etc. I actually doubt how much these young filmmakers seem to know about the complexity of working class life in urban poor London, which I know a lot about.
There is light, there is humour, there is love, there is fun. Show that also! There is more than one shade in the 'endz'. Stop only showing darkness. It is inaccurate and insulting to people such as myself who love films and come from the world they want to portray and make money out of.
I am glad movies are getting made about my world. But please show the whole spectrum.
