Editorial Reviews

This isn't child's play. It's just another day in the inner city, where teenage growing pains can often lead to suicide, pregnancy and hot-blooded murder. So when classes are suspended after a bullied schoolgirl hangs herself rather than face another day of torment, a posse of unremorseful 15-year-olds take to the streets, where sex and drugs are a way of life and violence lurks behind every corner. Gritty, raw and brutally frank, Kidulthood is "as potent as a shot of vodka before breakfast" (Daily Mirror), a hardcore look at lost innocence and wasted youth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must SEE! August 17, 2010
Extreme Teen film very well made and directed! Dealing with the streets of the U.K. this film was impressing in that it kept your attention from beginning to end. No doubt filled with controversy and plagued with foul language this film deals with suicide, drugs, sex and all of the temptations out there tempting our youth today. An interesting take as a U.S. viewer to see many of the same problems in England. One of the main actors (to the best of my knowledge) also directed this. Not one I would recommend for Children but worth watching for sure. A few parts will make you cringe especially if you are a parent. Thanks for reading :)

This film portrays a day in the life of some SCHOOL KIDS (in inner London), it wasn't trying to portray gun gangs etc to the world, it WAS portraying teenagers, in school uniform. It was trying to portray the contemporary garbage talk and barely legible English which our future subjects currently speak in their school yard p*ssing grounds and inner city pit holes. And yes, seeing as in my line of work I come across degenerates like these day in an day out, it does do a basic good job of roughly portraying them, and their attitude, however the 4'6" types wouldn't get away with half they did in the movie.

The acting is poor - over acting is the norm here, your typical stereotypes abound. The scenarios really take leaps of faith, bordering on the fantastical. I mean, the day started with bullying, main dessert; a suicide, was followed up by a pregnancy, bouts of prostitution, under age sex, Paedaphilia, drugs, gun running, Heroin, Glaswegian Smiles, torture, more beatings, girl bashing, humiliation, more drugs, drink, insults, mum bashing, theft, robbery, and ended with a party, and two murders! Wow! A day in the life of your common or lesser spotted teenager school kid in Ladbroke Grove (and yes Ladbroke Grove is a dump) - oh and let's not forget the '6th former' (Sam) How he got into the 6th form? I suppose he probably gave his teacher a nosh or something, as there's no way on Earth reprobates like that would ever get there!
The Director also seemed to be portraying unplanned school age teenage Pregnancies as acceptable!

Two stories entwine (sp?) in this film about London youth. This film did have elements of "Kids," "Boyz N Da Hood," and "Menace II Society," but it was still original and jaw-dropping.
This film shows violent, disrespectful, evildoers, of both genders and many races. They are unlovable characters for which it is hard to root. I thought of the clich'e "If you lie down with dogs" as I watched this. Since the characters are so nasty to their enemies and strangers, it's no surprise that they become nasty with each other.
While American films can be multi-culty, study after study after study show that the US is highly segregated in schools, neighborhoods, and especially marriage. Here you see white, Black, and Asian Brits intermingling frequently. Not one character disapproves of interracial coupling, while in most American films, there is at least one character who would make a fuss about it. Seeing the ethnic bonding throughout the film seemed so unlike the US.
This film also shows a gray area regarding racism in the UK. For example, Black males have trouble getting a cab, but once they do ride in one, they stiff the cabbie. Later, the Black males are spied upon by store security. In the same way that "The Color Puprle" needed Sophia's story in order to show that while Celie was a domestic violence victim, all the characters still lived in a racially-oppressive context, here these mean kids also facee structural inequalities.
I kept asking myself, "Who is the audience for this film!?" I assume most films with young actors are attracting a young market. However, I did wonder if the film was meant to make adult scream, "What is this world coming to?!" This was just another film portraying youth as a "lost generation.
