    The film delivers lots of high-pitched hysteria but never manages to make its spoiled protagonists interesting.

    London has a distinct Off-Off-Broadway feel. There's a stagebound quality to its handful of claustrophobic locations, its endless assault of intense coke talk, and its third-rate invocation of David Mamet, David Rabe, and Neil LaBute.

    Perhaps the best compliment that can be paid to Hunter Richards' directorial debut is that it nearly manages to make some of the most irritatingly shallow human beings on Earth seem tragic.

    If London were a comedy, it just might work. Instead, it's a dead-serious marathon of angst from cool kids old enough to know they're mouthing cliches.
  5. Reviewed by: Michael Phillips
    Newbie director Richards shoots all the women like slabs of meat, and his self-seriousness throughout London--some of it tries to be funny, a lot of it is funny by accident--borders on the delusional.

    Syd is a jerk whose anger does not make him interesting. The only reason to keep watching is because you hope someone will drop a piano on his head.
  7. Reviewed by: Phil Hall
    London is the independent film world's equivalent of a fiasco.

    Don't believe the critics, they have no idea what they are talking about.

    This movie is excellent, and I totally couldn't believe so many critics slam it.

    These actors know how to pose, understand how to move: Evans crouching in torment, Statham

    This movie captures the feeling of being high on coke in a thought provoking and engaging manner. Sure, the protagonist is an asshole, but he's also real. We don't have to like the main character in order to believe that the he's twisted. Expand

    I bought this film cheaply from a bargain bin and it was not even worth the five bucks I paid for it in my opinion. It contained the most usages of the word f*** I have ever heard in any film at any time and as such it deserves an all time worst film award. jason Statham does not save this film from being a truly sordid experience to watch. I was surprised that jessica Biel was in this dog also since she is generally in more classy films. The film is more about drug use than anything else and that is also not much of a plot for a film to me. It tries to glamourize/normalize the issue of drug use and fails badly. Expand

    Insipid tripe. You'll find yourself wishing for Jason or Freddy or Max Cady to show up and kill all these whiny crybabies before they launch into another vapid conversation about the meaning of life. Expand

    I thought with such an interesting cast this movie would get better as I watched it. I was completely wrong. This movie is horrible! It's on par with "Cabin Boy" and at
    least that movie was trying to be funny. The only thing this movie has going for it is the actresses are extremely drop dead hot in it, but even that could save it from the horribly whiny plot. Only watch it to check out the actresses....
