Stevenage does look bleak in this autobiographical pic but the careful direction and honest performances make this movie well worth watching. Marc Warren is explosive and John Simm plays the writer with skill and sensitivity. It's essentially about escaping small town England for adventures elsewhere. If anyone knows what really happened in the back of the baker's lorry can you let me know?

This is a powerful movie exploring important and pervasive themes of our humanity. It is not merely about disenfranchised youth as some have commented, although that is the primary story. It is also about how fragile we all are, and how even our parents are incapable of transcending their own failures. From suicide to a gradual decent into mental ill-health, the characters are forced to adapt, although some know that in order to break out of the destructive cycle they find themselves in, they need to remove themselves from the very environment in which they find acceptance and identity. If they don't then the pervasive violence, corruption, alcoholism and human defeat, will overwhelm them. Phil (John Simm) knows this, although he is unsure of how to break free of both his past and his present. He looks after his alcoholic father, who seems to have accepted his unfortunate state of affairs. Yet there is genuine affection between the two, as they are both tragically affected by the death of his mother. Ted (Andrew Lincoln) is perhaps the brightest of the lot, and his choice to 'disappear' is only understood towards the end of the movie. He leaves not to abandon his friends, or their lives together, but to mould an identity and way of life for himself. If he stayed, he would be absorbed into the perpetual cycle of drink, drugs and temporary gratification, without any means or vision allowing for a different future.

Phil too must make a decision, as his life sits on the cutting edge of both destruction and purpose. Will he make the right choice, or will he become absorbed by those around him. Will he in defeat accept his lot, and merely survive the dull life of Stevenage. Or will he refuse to allow such, and rage against the life which seeks to hold him back?

Powerfully told, with excellent casting and acting. A horribly under-rated gem of a movie.

This was, and is quite an overlooked little film, which was released just after Trainspotting. On the surface it seems it was trying to capitalize on it's success, but they're really worlds apart. It has a great cast, Marc Warren steals the show as Rob, a pseudo-punk yob who creates havoc for himself and his friends. I won't ruin the plot for you, but there are some quite unsettling moments. John Simm (Life on Mars, 24hour party people) also stars as the protagonist. Definitely worth watching

If "Twin Town" was the Welsh Trainspotting, then Boston Kickout is the English one. Some excellent performances from then up-and-coming actors, and a great portrayal of a New Town in all its concrete emptiness. Only let down a bit by the low budget.

An awesome film that I saw when it was released on video. It's worth a watch just to see how all those famous actors did it when they first started out !
