This review is from: Shank  [Blu-Ray] (Blu-ray)
Loved Kidulthood, Bullet Boy etc , all those gritty U.K based dramas. Shank unfortunatley fails on every level there is. For those intrested on the blu ray picture- its very good and crisp but for some bizarre reason theres no subtitle option for the film and I hated that. Its always good to be able to catch every part of the dialogue and this is hard especally in the narrative parts of the film where you cant really make out what the main character saying half the time unless you have the volume stupidly loud. As far as the film goes, it was just depressing and very predictable. Bullet boy had a real point to the film that hit home, same as Kidulthood. Not this. I couldnt help but think it was just a bunch of stupid kids running around an estate trying to outdo each other on the "i look harder than you do" level. No real character development, or a good display of londons backstreets or different cultures. Could have been sooo much more. A dissapointment and a shame really.
Blu ray picture 5/5
