Raw and real enough for the heads to remain buried in the sand

4.5 Rating for a film that highlights the many problems London and other British towns and cities youth...are you watching Mr. khan! With the postcode wars and many stabbings the youth of today inflict on each other, where crime is influenced by idiot music stars that have no care or respect for the lives of those that download and buy their music. Where schooling these kids is a near on impossible task because the schools are more like war zones than an institution for learning. This film takes us into the places you don’t want to go in daytime, let alone at night. Sham 69: Angels with dirty faces...remember the lyrics from 35+ years ago...nothing has changed other than more immigration and liberal minded snobs moving in and thinking their new lovely diverse £1m+ home just up the road is driving those out who drove the original Londoners out...eg East London. These places was bad enough growing up in then, a false sense of security and safety in numbers when venturing into some rival areas. Lennie James and the young cast gave this excellent film everything in showing a very real glimpse into how every new generation is offered less prospects than the previous one. As a society and in our communities nothing much changes in these places, we are meant to progress with each generation, not fall deeper into decline. Where I grew up has changed so much for the worse, parking lots being built over to meet the demand for overcrowding and a council waiting list that is too long and pc too prejudiced that it has ripped up communities and forced people so far out that they move to the other side of the country. Tower Hamlets council once told someone I know the waiting list for a home for them in the borough would be 99 years, no joke! Thank god for the right to buy your council house in the 80’s, that at least gave some a choice and start on the property ladder. Fallout shows the reason why I and many others will never return to our roots once gone. The change is too painful to revisit the place we once called home and the streets we played in . I have no idea why this film has no other reviews, I have viewed this in the past. There doesn’t seem to be a dvd release either. A very real film that should be more well known and deserves some recognition for pointing to the problems that some either wish to ignore while others just don’t care enough to or are too frightened to get involved with Authorities and police included!

Topical film illustrating gang sub culture in London.

This was an eye opening film about a black boy stabbed to death by a member of a black gang, the sort of thing that happens far too regularly in real life in London. The younger actors playing the gang members were very convincing. However there were poor negative sterotypes of two white policemen, scruffy, overweight, useless with racist attitudes to the black detective played by the superb actor Lennie James. I have seen a few roles played by James and he really is a show stealer. In my humble opinion he has all the attributes to be the British equivalent of the superb Denzel Washington. I enjoyed this movie and the ending had a twist in it. Great entertainment but with a reminder of the scourge of knife crime !

Completely absorbing

Brilliant performances all round in a film that illustrates the reality of life in our unequal society. The story neither justifies nor completely condemns the characters involved in the tragic violence on a housing estate... and is all the better for that.
