You're a bad man now........,
This review is from: Ill Manors (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
I wasn't looking forward to this at all. It looked like it was some pop star who had just fallen in the right place, and wanted to cash in on his fame.
But, I never really knew who 'Plan B' was really, apart from some dodgy pop songs.
How wrong I am though, and it takes a lot for me to admit i'm wrong. Ill Manors is easily one of the most disturbing 'urban' movies I have seen in a while. heavily influenced by the two Clarkes Noel and Alan, Drew has given us a film that oozes propaganda and pleas.
The film interlinks three stories, just Like Pulp Fiction, and the narrative is the fantastic haunting soundtrack.
Ahmed is as good as he always is, but is let down by some of the cast, who are just poor in their roles. These people stay in character all through the film, whereas in real life, is just a facade for the street.
The imagery is stark, especially in the baby rescue scene, and it really does deliver it's message, very bluntly.
On a 100k budget, Drew has made a very professional looking movie, and I look forward to seeing what he has to give us next.
