User Review

why all the bad ratings

Rating: 9/10


I am not sure why this film is getting so many poor ratings. It is an
excellent piece of film-making with a cracking script, fine
performances and imaginative direction. A real eye opener that deserves
a wide audience.

The movie has sparked some controversy in the UK for 'glorifying' the
violence, sex and drugs portrayed but that is rubbish, this is
essentially a deeply moral tale at heart.

Mark Kermode gave it a very sensible and measured review on his Radio 5
slot and I am in agreement with him.

I predict that a number of the actors in Kidulthood will go on to
bigger things. A group of talent to watch.
