Review
5 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

So. Kidulthood. There has been a lot of talk about this film and how it's a little over the top that it happens in one day. That may be so, but the issues faced in the film are what that demographic goes through and i think by audience reaction so far the film makers choice to show this was correct. I also believe people are missing the point. Film like books doesn't have to answer question. I thought The film itself is beautifully shot. Tufano has used everything at his disposal to make the low budget work, and with clever editing and music any weak directing is quickly covered. the acting is amazing with the Young Ameen (Trife)an Madrell (Alisa)using their raw talent to put in Stella performances. One wonders if they can get any better than this. If they can i believe the future of British TV/Film is in good hands. Noel Clarke's performance as (Sam, the Bully) was downright amazing. Seeing him totally convince me that he was not Wyman or Mickey, (the characters he plays in two well known shows)Was a treat. His menace and the intimidation factor he bought to Sam showed that many films that have used a British rapper in the parts may have missed a trick. (Although i have heard that in real life he is more like Sam than the those other characters mentioned. Apart from thee abusive bullying part of course.) Jamie winstone is also a great as (Becky) and the laughs come from Deacon (Jay) Clarke's script although great, suffers at times with the over use of bad language and violent scenes which seem a little too much. the general chatter of the young people is real enough though snatched straight from the streets of Ladbroke grove itself. You believe the conversations the kids have and kind of like their youthful ignorance. The lack of police is a bit unreal and you would think parents would be around a little more but the film makers say that this film is supposed to be from the kids point of view and not many kids get up to bad stuff with mum around. Overall i would say that although not perfect, i would say that this is the best homegrown film in at least ten years. You will love or hate this movie (I personally loved it) but you should definitely see it. British film, in all it's low budget grittyness is back. You get me! (That's what the kids say right?)
