From the distributor of Kidulthood comes Shank, the hottest, most controversial, action-packed thriller of the year. It's London 2015 and merciless gang warfare dominates the decaying capital. The Paper Chaserz stay clear of trouble, but when a conflict with a rival gang gets out of control they find themselves in a terrifying chase across the danger-filled streets of London, risking their lives in search of revenge. Featuring the UK's hottest grime artist Bashy, Adam Deacon (KiDULTHOOD, AdULTHOOD), the stunning Kaya Scodelario (Skins) and exclusive live performances from Tempa T and D Double E, Shank is an adrenaline fuelled ride like no other.

Format: DVD
This was a let down. I had really high hopes for this and I was definitely DUPED by the box cover. I thought it said from the DIRECTOR who brought you Kidulthood and Adulthood and so was very keen on the film as both these films are amazing and all the more so dfor the gifted director/actor/scriptwriter in them. However... it's ver dodgy as what it says is the film is from the DISTRIBUTOR who brought you those films. So what? Who cares about Distribution? It's not going to effect the quality of script or photography or actors is it? They definitely did this on purpose and like a mug I was sucked in.
To show you how bad the film was though, I was only a quarter the way through before I started thinking how bad the film was and I really couldn't get my head around the difference in quality and knew something was wrong and hence picked the box up and re-read it and discovered my mistake.
So what's up with the film then? Well it's pretty dire acting. Unfortunately the young star of the film is too young. You know when you see schoolkids in school plays and how they rush their lines and think that the way to emote anger, stress, passion etc. is to shout everything .... Yup he does all this. Someone should have coached him better.
Next is the theme and construction of the script. The basis is the kid goes on a tour of London trying to get help and sanction to kill the murderer of his brother who's also a member of another gang. It's here that you get the impression the story isn't cohesive and it seems to be a set of sub themes bolted together that don't merge very well.

I was expecting a gritty film and gritty is largely what you get. Beyond that the screen play appears to have been written by one of the more neanderthall characters it seeks to portray.

Poorly written with a storyline that would have no difficulty in being written twice on half a postage stamp, mostly one dimensional acting at best there was so very little to involve the audience here. Even my 15 year old son thought this one of the worst films he had seem and he appears capable of tolerating a high level of gangsta drivel.

The attempts at Tarentino were laughable and meaningless with anime cuts serving no appreciable purpose. I would have at the very least expected a decent dub step based soundtrack but that seemed absent as well.

This film fails to engage at the most basic level. Perhaps it should be returned to the cutting room floor and reworked as a dark comedy but then it would have to find wit and a modicum of intelligence from somewhere. This was a film that is the DVD first for me to have found its way into the bin within minutes of the credits rolling at the end.

This is a truely bad film presumably marketed at an audience of the gangs it depicts and those who want to be in them. My advice is - Avoid like the plague !

This film disapointed me, its set in the future and the gangs have took over, instead of gangs fighting over drugs and mooney they fight for food, 'bashy' is only in the film for the first 20 minutes, and the 'top boy' who is apparently the 'hardest' man around is the worst actor ever, not worth your money

well just watched SHANK, i was expecting something on parr with adult/kidulthood but it was way below that class. Deacon as always is a top actor, didnt like the main character junior.

Format: DVD
Shank is the story of London in 2015, the rich have pulled up the drawbridge and left the council estates as completely self-regulating entities. As life spirals into survival of the fittest, guns & drugs have all but disappeared from the street replaced by the hustle for food, or "munchies" as it is endlessly referred to. When Junior (Kedar Williams-Stirling) is accosted by a gang known as 'the Souljahs' his brother Rager (brilliantly played by Bashy) is forced to step in, getting 'shanked' - stabbed - in the ensuing tussle. Junior swears revenge on the Souljahs and will stop at nothing to get it.

As a supporter of British films, I honestly wanted to like Shank and from the get-go it looked like a solid premise and some decent material to work with. However the execution of this film was simply terrible; the chase scenes (of which there are many) are horrendously shaky & blurry meaning they are near-impossible to follow. There is a totally unneccesary dog-fight, where neither dog is shown on screen but you have two streetfighter-esque health bars progressively going down whilst the crowd shouts & spits in a series of close-ups as fake blood is sprayed on the concrete. Truly awful cinema.

The soundtrack is prmiarily grime with some drum'n'bass and has some stand out tracks; the scene where they go and see 'Whisper' - the overseer of the estates - is set in a club and the live music act is fantastically soulful and rhythmic. The shining star of this dross is the gorgeous Kaya Scodelario (Skins) who has a small role but steals every scene she is in. The rest of Rager & Junior's crew are a group of racial clichés that add nothing to the story.
