From the Back Cover

It started out like any other day......

South West 9. Nowhere else in Britain has such a diversity of characters and true street culture. Riots. Guns. Drugs. The ingredients of old Brixton. Throw in yuppies, clubbers, scammers plus Britain's most kicking clubs and you have the new Brixton.

Five different characters are thrown together in one weird, mashed up day. It started out like any other, but 24 hours later everything had changed.

It's all kicking off....

Winner of Best Sound Track at the British Independent Film Awards. Featuring Orbital, Alabama 3, Roger Sanchez, The Clash and Lol Hammond. Mixed by Dave Pearce.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly ground breaking 3 Jan 2003
Format:DVD
SW9 is an enjoyable romp through the fringes of the free party scene, populated with characters that come straight out of "The Big Book Of Urban Stereotypes", and it's safe to say that if you liked Human Traffic then this one'll be right up your alley. It's a fair bit darker though, it has to be said, which might not appeal to everyone but personally I felt the film needed a darker twist in order to give it an edge and stop it becoming "Human Traffic part 2". It kind of outstays its welcome by the time the final reel comes round and leans a bit too heavily on the films that have obviously inspired it - namely Human Traffic and Trainspotting - but you could see a lot worse films than this.
There's good use of real Brixton locations, which do the film a lot of favours and always manage to raise a smile when you see somewhere you recognise.
I don't mind the stereotypes or the contrived story, the occasionally underachieving cast, the dialogue that's convinced it's being clever, the script that thinks if you can weave half a dozen stories together you'll have Pulp Fiction.... but what I do mind is that when something says it's a comedy and then doesn't make you laugh even once.... that's not good. That's an Adam Sandler movie.
If you're a big fan of the movie already there's enough on the disc to satisfy you (although a cast/crew commentary would have been a good addition as those involved did seem to be having a good time making it) with a handful of deleted scenes, music videos, a behind the scenes featurette etc. Some input from the cast seems to be missing though, it's obvious that this is the directors baby and all we get are his enthusiastic views on the film, still, we can't have everything.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like Human Traffic? Then miss this one 15 Dec 2004
Format:DVD
I personally loved Human Traffic. When it came out it was a breath of fresh air. Great to see a film based on British Clubbing, cliched, but great fun all the same. So I was looking forward to South West 9 when it came out, some of the best artists on the sound track like Sunscreem. However, the acting was poor at the best of the time (no great acting from the likes of John Simm), and the story line, well, not sure it had a story line to begin with.
Many of the reviews claimed it was a "darker version" of Human Traffic or it was like a sequel to Human Traffic, sadly, both cases they are wrong. Hire before you buy is my advice!

5.0 out of 5 stars A well woven Black Comedy set in Brixton. 2 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
What starts as a normal day (for Brixton anyway) ends tangled & seriously messed up with crusties, scam artists, the national front, hippies & a buisnesswoman all together with a gun pointing at them - one gets wasted, but which one? With a background of anti-capitalist riots & drugs, this films dark humour ,an excellent twist and a morally challenging ending make this film enjoyable & satisfying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very boring! 25 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very very boring film, bought it thinking that it would be similar to Human traffic and Trainspotting but I couldn't be any more wrong.
