Product Description

With their exams over, best friends Malachy (Rupert Grint, Harry Potter franchise) and Luke (The Misfits) are out to have one hell of a summer. However, the arrival of Michelle (Kimbereley Nixon, Angus Thongs & Perfect Snogging), a captivating but troubled beauty, tests their friendship to the limit as she encourages the two boys to carry out increasingly dangerous and illegal stunts in the battle for her affections. As the competition between Malachy and Luke spirals out of control the future paths of all three are thrown into question.

The ingredients looked good: Three excellent actors (Robert Sheehan, Rupert Grint and James Nesbitt) and the plot and setting seemed OK too. Something went wrong though because James and Robert both came across as very weak actors (which they are not). Rupert managed to scrape out a fair performance, but it was nothing to write home about.

The cutting of the film was annoying, especially towards the end of the film. A few seconds of action would often be lost in cuts to new angles, something you usually only see in amateur films.

The fight scenes were particularly painful to watch as the actors turned in to solid blocks of wood before your eyes.

I'm not sure what went wrong, but this director definitely did not get the best out of his actors.

Bought this due to my love of Robert Sheehan (and also Rupert Grint) and I must say it's one of the best films I've seen in a while. Definitely to a certain taste (more homemade style than most films but thats probably just down to being a lower budget film) and themes of drugs, partying etc. Loved it!!!!

Cherrybomb is a beautiful little piece of cinematography. The style of direction is original and stylish without being pretentious and the three main actors are excellent!
Set in Northern Ireland, best friends Malachy and Luke battle for the affections of glamorous Michelle. Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll ensues... and of course drama.
In a nutshell, a beautiful little gem for all cinema lovers.

I really enjoyed this movie! Honestly, I only bought it because Rupert Grint is in it and I'm a big fan of his work in Harry Potter. I definitely wasn't disappointed. He plays a completely different character in "Cherry Bomb" and does a great job of it. I totally forgot that he was Ron Weasley (and I'm a huge fan of the character). I also thought the other actors in the movie did a great job. That definitely wasn't lacking for an independent movie.

The story line was interesting and I absolutely loved the ending. I thought it was well written. Definitely something worth checking out!

I love Robert Sheehan and Rupert Grint (and of course James Nesbitt), and thought this would be right up my street - it sounds skins-esque in the blurb - but this film was pretty disappointing, I can see what it was trying for but just didn't quite make it. Watched it once but in no hurry to watch it again.

Cherrybomb is a fun movie. It's a movie that isn't Earth shattering but should be taken as a film 'finally' showing Belfast as a real place rather than a trouble-ridden area. Too many Belfast movies go that easy route and while history never should be forgotten, there is a time when one can over do it.

The story follows three teenagers with seemingly cliched lives. The good kid wanting to rebel because of his parents' coddling. The bad boy from a broken home. The girl who doesn't get any attention. However Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa direction make it visual eye candy and the three leads Rupert Grint, Robert Sheehan and Kimberley Nixon give their characters heart. You being to care about each of them and at times you even want to smack them for their misdeeds. And while the script isn't always perfect the directing and the acting make up for it.

Fans of Rupert Grint will see him in a whole new light. He literally becomes the character of Malachy and all traces of Ron Weasley are readily erased, this sentiment supported by many top critics in the UK. Robert Sheehan while sometimes a bit over the top is charismatic and engaging. Kimberley Nixon on the other hand is given a not so fully developed character, two dimensional on paper at times, but she gives Michelle heart and you feel for her plight many times over even if you don't always agree with her decisions. James Nesbitt is hilarious in his role as Crilly.

The movie itself is very different from what you might be used to. The directors have backgrounds in graphic arts and it shows with the colors and the styling of the film. The soundtrack, put together by David Holmes, is a catchy one. The only thing truly lacking is the script isn't as quite as strong as the rest of the movie, but as previously stated, everything else makes up for this issue.

Although the service from amazon was perfect, the movie itself was awful. It was filmed in my local leisure centre so I thought it might be good to watch but it was terrible. The accents especially were terrible.

This film was OK but the story dragged on a bit and nobody seemed to get anywhere, except for one with his brief sex adventure.. I understood the story and felt sorry for the characters.
