Sponsored by Ralph Lauren, this is another Brit flop of a film. An awful chav cast deliver a chav story about a small time drug dealing young man, where every other word is bruv.
George (an unlike-able main character) and his girlfriend (big fringe and teeth and not much else) are planning a holiday, but George has no job and is a cockney waster - like his council estate mates. So he buys some cocaine to re-sell and earn the holiday money he requires to woo his 'posher bird'.
Turnout, or better named Burnout, boasts woeful acting, silly, obvious scripting, a stretched classic idea and a young Paul Bettany look alike messing around North London. It is as soft as the main character, with style over substance, stereotypes and comical cartoon representatives throughout.
The ending will be viewed one of 2 ways (as a good inevitable tidy ending or a hard to believe total cop-out) . Either way it's conclusion is that this is a modern, independent love story with little substance (other than the drugs). T.O is a small film happy just being different, watering down content with easy slang and yob behaviour making up for a lack of quality content.
Not for everyone 'bruv', ultimately silly and niche, geezers only tonight.
Really well shot and casted film. Great music and really good 'real life' story feel to it. Can't fault anything about this. Very enjoyable, fast paced and I would imagine very relatable in someway to lads between 18 to 30! Only down side was the sound is a little off here and there. But the acting, story and visuals are so good, you can excuse that one down side.
great film. very believable. enjoyed it from start to end. i love these kind of films and would recommend this to my friends. made even greater at the price. good cast. only critisim is that ben drew should have had a bigger role. apart from that i cant say anything against this film
I really tried to like it but I just couldn't and even had to quit watching before the end. Ophelia Loveibond is a really good actress, but even she couldn't rescue this lame story / script. Avoid!! :-(
Cliched, plastic gangster nonsense. Poor script, peppered with expletives and teenage angst of the council house white yardie variety. Seems strange that this should receive fairly good reviews here as it stands out as possibly the worst heap of 'social realism' tripe ever to hit celluloid...bruv.
Watch 'Up the Junction' it says it all... with far more impact!
