Product Description

From BAFTA winning writer Paul Abbott, comes a story of power, greed, corruption and lies on the streets of East London in the run up to the Olympic Games.

Parminder Nagra (Bend It Like Beckham, ER, Alcatraz) is Deeva Jani, a successful, Paris-based fashion executive who is forced to return home to the UK when she receives the shocking news that her teenage brother Vipon, played by newcomer Sebastian Nanena, has been arrested for a fatal gang shooting in East London. As she and her family are vilified and the dead boy's violent family threaten retribution against her brother in jail, Deeva turns detective in an attempt to uncover the truth, prove her brother's innocence and save his life.

Teaming up with youth worker and ex-gang member, Clint, played by Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood), Deeva soon finds herself up against powerful and unexpected adversaries including the corrupt but highly connected DCI Stone, played by Tony Award-winner Stephen Dillane (The Hours, SpyGame). As events unfold a deeper conspiracy is unlocked involving political corruption, media manipulation, prostitution, murder and power struggles way beyond London's street gangs, all the way to the heart of the government.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see movie 4 Oct 2012
By Gaby B.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have followed the Twenty8K project for quite a while on the internet and was very curious to see the full movie. I need to say the movie made it immediately on my must see list after I arleady saw it at its premier in London where I really enjoyed watching it. The movie combines a great plot with an amazing cast. Thumbs up, people really should go and buy this movie on DVD or Bluray.

5.0 out of 5 stars twenty8k 4 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray
quite funny was going to say that it was weird that I got this in HMV for 11 and on here it was 17.97 but seen they've changed the price. Ha.
I was pleasently surprised by this film. a great little British thriller; if a tad slow at times. but the acting is good the direction. do love the Aerial shots of London.
did think the story fell a bit short with the many conspiracies.
but overall a very powerful and enjoyable film;
outline. Nagra's charactor a fashion producer based in Paris comes back to London as her brother is accused of shooting a boy. but she decides no he didn't and does a Jessica Fletcher and investigates (but don't worry unlike Jessica Fletcher she doesnt come up with truths just like that and at the end she doesnt bring everyone together and finally reveals the true killer)
The film may not be one of the best films you'll ever watch (though it could be) but i really liked this film, and being a huge fan of british films (well i am british) [patriotic salute to god save the queen]
I loved the story; the way this film was done. and proves you don't need a huge budget to make a good movie. nor do you need gimics like 3D cgi, as long as you got a good story and good actors a film can work. this is why British films are pretty good (when done properly) examples? Eden Lake, Rise of the footsoldier, this is England, Football factory, and so on.
i would recommend this film

3.0 out of 5 stars London Gang Story based in Olympic London. 12 Dec 2012
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Set in the run up to the Olympic Games this is a London based gang and crime story. The title of the film is the name of a fictional gang living in a fictional part of London, South Wood. One of the gang members gets arrested and charged with shooting his friend. His world of fashion sister, Deeva (Parminder Nagra - `Bend It like Beckham') then comes back from Paris to try to help him, and she turns into a regular Sherlock overnight.

This is a stylish film and all of the actors put in convincing performances, and I really wanted to like this. There is a but; and that is it falls down on facts, there are plot holes and a sugar coated ending that would be better placed on `Scooby Doo'. The sex scenes are far from impressive too and if the police really were as bad as portrayed here, I would take up international drug dealing too.

So sorry guys, whilst this is entertaining on a certain level, it most certainly is not an excellent film. The action is done well, the production does not seem to lack because of budget, this is down to the actual plot. I do appreciate independent films, especially British efforts, but this could have been better, hence my rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Brit-Flic! 16 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Great movie for those of us who enjoy a good Brit-Flic. Superb acting and as a bonus: Kaya Scodelario is featured as a girlfriend/prostitute and plays her role superbly. The story is very good and one is kept on the edge of the seat the whole time. Great London scenery too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twenty8k is intense, exciting and very current. 14 Sep 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Amidst a background of property development, council planning committees, conspiracy, corruption and prostitution Twenty8k does not pull any punches. Although it appears to be a simple case of a gang killing as the plot unfolds you immediately can tell that all is not as it seems. In fact Twenty8k is a clever well-put together piece of drama with an intricate plot that will keep you guessing. It is intense, exciting and very current.

The cast in the film are a great example of the fantastic talent Britain has to offer. Parminder Nagra's (Bend it Like Beckham, ER, Alcatraz) portrayal as the gutsy sister determined to prove her brother's innocence is very convincing and Kaya Scodelario (Skins, Wuthering Heights, Clash of the Titans) is on point as the tragic Sally projecting innocence and street cred all at once. Twenty8k is Sebastion Nanena's debut as Vipon and by the looks of his performance this lad's got a successful career ahead of him.

The one major character that lurks quietly but impressively in the background, is London itself. Set in Southwood East London, Twenty8k has great aerial shots of the capitol. Canary Wharf, so recognisable, pops up a few times as does the O2 and Olympic stadiums. But the close-ups of apartment blocks, streets, alleyways and the criss-crossing fly-overs certainly give anyone who has never visited a flavour of the capitol.

Twenty8k is not a sentimental story or one that tries to ram morals down the viewer's throat but a harsh portrayal of a messed up world where those who hold the power eliminate anyone that gets in their way. Expect violence, harsh language and sex but also great acting, thumping beats and thrilling camera work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twenty8k: Compelling & gritty British thriller 14 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Twenty8k is a compelling and gritty thriller showcasing the best of British talent in terms of cast, crew & storytelling. The intricate plot keeps you guessing all the way through, as there are so many twists and turns along the way; it's just like trying to fit all the puzzle pieces together! The characters are all believable and found it a real joy to follow the lead character 'Deeva' played by the amazing Parminder Nagra (ER, Alcatraz), in her investigation to find the truth & to clear her brother's name.

It really is a terrific ensemble cast, each giving fantastic performances: an excellent Jonas Armstrong (Hit & Miss, The Street) plays social youth worker 'Clint O'Connor', Michael Socha (Being Human) plays 'Tony', Nichola Burley (Streetdance, Jump) plays 'Andrea', a fabulous Kierston Wareing (Luther,The Shadow Line) plays 'Francesca' and Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones, Hunted) excels as 'DCI Stone.

Twenty8k is beautifully shot by directors David Kew & Neil Thompson, creating lots of atmosphere, the helicopter shots of London in particular are simply breathtaking! Lots of comparisons have been made with 'State of Play' because of Paul Abbott 's involvement with the screenplay. And I tend to agree: if you liked 'State of Play' you'll love Twenty8k!

If you're looking for a very entertaining & enjoyable thriller to watch, look no further than Twenty8k. You won't be disappointed!
