Going to an illegal rave, the boys journey into an underworld of anarchy, freedom and collision with the law as they share a night that they will never forget.Written by
In the UK, the film is certified as 18 but the two trailers were certified as 12 and 12A, which is unusual for trailers for an 18 film. The BBFC report says that the certificate was given only because of "very strong language", with no mention of violence or sex. See more »
In the "motorway" scene, immediately after D-Man is put in the boot of the Volvo, a Mk7 Ford Transit minibus drives past - a vehicle which didn't exist until 2006. See more »
This film had all the ingredients but didn't work for me.
This is tartan Dazed & Confused territory - one last BIG night fare. And Trainspotting hangs over affairs, with one of the main characters a double-take for Spud and a PoundLand Renton in the tale.
The trouble is it chucks all the ingredients in: Criminal Justice bill, coming Blair; closing down of the mines; police brutality. But they all seem muddled (or incorrect). And many of the characters incredibly one-dimensional.
However, it ends on a tender note as two young men whose bond is strengthened through their shared love of music.
