    Very violent. Very bleak. Very boring. Couldn't understand half of what they were saying? Were parts of this in a foreign language, or was the accent so bleepin thick I couldn't understand it? Frankly, I didn't care enough to figure it out. I mean, are we really supposed to care about these indulgent, reckless, hell-bent set of slashers? big waste of time.

    The movie's performances have a simplicity and accuracy that is always convincing. Compston, who plays Liam, is a local 17-year-old discovered in auditions at his school. He has never acted before, but is effortlessly natural.

    There are no hearts and flowers in Loach's hard-edged world, no kindly interventions, no signs from heaven. Instead, he gives us the unvarnished facts about working-class exploitation and the failure of ambition in low places.
  3. It's a beautiful, grim tale.
