I thought the first film was excellent, which I caught on TV accidently whilst channel hoping, so bought both the original and this sequel on the strength of the first film. Although i think the film deals bravely with a subject matter that is very much in the public consciousness with the surge in youth violence, and it deals with the subject in a sensitive way as well as being very stylised. Unfortunately it failed to have the same impact the first film had. I think it's worth watching, but whereas I can say I could watch the first film over and over, this sequel I don't think I would want to see more than once. SOME of the actors are great including the guy who plays Moony, and I love Noel Clarke so there is an extra star in there just for him alone:)

In a nutshell - it's......... OK!!

After writing and acting in Kidulthood, Noel Clarke seizes full creative control by also directing the sequel. With most of the original cast back along with some new faces, Adulthood shows us how the transition from teen to adult has affected the lives of those on the rough London estate. The film begins with a quick recap of the events from the last film, and then six years later we see a shooting on the estate - it doesn't look like things have really changed...

Sam is now a free man after serving 6 years in prison for the killing of Trevor. He walks out of prison and into a city where his previous actions have not been forgotten, within hours he's sporting a knife wound from a revenge attack. With the promise of further revenge we see Sam struggling with his hard-to-break violent habits and a desire to put it all behind him. Although the film follows several characters, Sam is the central figure and despite his tough guy image he is carrying a lot of emotional baggage.

As with Kidulthood, on the surface Adulthood looks like a film desperate to look like a cool Brit-flick - but there's substance here. As well as macho posturing and punches, there are bombshells and tears to come from the hard-men. For characters who find it so difficult to open up and discus their insecurities there are times where they philosophise and reflect on past events. While a lot of the kids don't seem to have grown up much, some are less naïve and have matured - through flashbacks we see how some of Sam's experiences in prison turned him from the hard kid on the block into a little boy on the wing and it's made him realise that the world is a much bigger place than the London estate which seemed to be the centre of the universe.

Really enjoyed this film , I would recommend that you watch Kiddulthood first though, as it is a follow on from that film. 9/10

The London tourist board probably weren't too happy with Adulthood or the "prequel", Kidulthood. London is portrayed as pretty much a poster-child for zero-tolerance policing, with unrestrained violent youth common on the streets. What makes this more unsettling is that the cast & crew interviews don't lead me to believe the cast were actually doing very much in the way of "acting" in either film. As with the first film, the script & direction are fine and the plot, if pretty predictable, hangs together without too much issue. It's a pretty straightforward "revenge" flick, though, and you will have seen it all before in a different setting.

3 stars, then, with the 3rd for technical merit alone.

Excellent follow up to Kidulthood. We see the difference six years make and the paths the characters from the first instalment take. Not usually a fan of the kind of music that accompanies the film but have to say that it does give the film and extra bounce to it.

Six years after Sam Peel is released from jail for killing Trife, he realises that life is no easier on the outside than it was on the inside and he's forced to confront the people he hurt the most.

Some have moved on, others are stuck with the repercussions of his actions that night, but one thing's for certain - everyone has been forced to grow up.

Through his journey Sam struggles to deal with his sorrow and guilt and something else he didn't expect - those seeking revenge.

As he's pursued by a new generation of bad boys, Sam sets about trying to get the message across to his pursuers that they should stop the violence.

Much like Trife tried to tell him all those years ago.....

A worthy follow up to kidulthood, this could also have been called Sam's redemption, as he is now a shadow of the character he was in the first film. And this is why Clarkes film works so well, because you never know if Sam will crack and begin to be the person he once was. There were times when i thought he would go back to his ways, but he only commits violence in this to protect himself, not because of wrath.

It's well scripted, and well cast. If you are from the UK, you will know that the 'gangsta' accents, a lot of the cast use are spot on, and also very annoying, just like in real life.

The ending is a bit over the top, and Danny Dyer has no real reason to be in this film, apart from acting the geezer, but these are minor quibbles in an otherwise terrific story.

Looks like Clarke could be big.

He even references doctor who when he is on the bus.
