Wasn't that bad...
11 March 2006 | by peteroughtonSee all my reviews

It was a bit disappointing mainly because I was pleased to see a film like this being released but it didn't live up to its full potential, Music on the film was fine as was the acting but the story was pretty basic and you didn't feel much for the characters despite how real they seemed... it was a very realistic film and was done very well but it doesn't live up to its hype and we're still yet to match films such as Boyz N Tha Hood/Menace II Society. Its on par with Bullet Boy but nowhere near the quality of Snatch/Lock Stock, Very basic story which the UK Video industry is yet to master, One day we will get it right, On day... Doesn't deserve too much negative criticism as its a genre I'm interested in. 6 out of 10 seems fair to me.
