Customer Review

on 17 August 2011
I watched this on TV last night (ITV4). Before doing so I read some of the reviews on amazon to see if it warranted a viewing. With mainly positive reviews I thought I was in for an entertaining couple of hours. Supposedly a film which portrayed todays 'hoodie' youth who terrorise society, and no doubt scheduled to capitalise on the discussions raised from the recent English riots.

Whether the TV version was edited as far as the gore and shock value was concerned I'm not sure, but a film which was an accurate portrayal of todays youth, as other reviewers have said, and the fact it could happen to anyone at any time. Give me a break. The gang responsible for the atrocities carried out in the film were led by a gang member who could only be described as psychopathic in nature, and not at all representative of the average youth. All the other members were led into carrying out their crimes against their will, and the regret of their actions became apparant as the film went on.

Some of the scenarios within the film were so far fetched that it lost all credibility, especially in the closing moments.

Horror? not quite, I was expecting a lot more from Eden Lake. If the DVD does contain more graphic scenes then it might warrant a 3 star, but with far fetched scenarios and little tension, it was a disappointing ride.
