  1. smndvdcl's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    A cautionary tale of the extreme idiocy of gun ownership. Inner-city London, a young man out of prison but trapped into a life of crime due to loyalty and brotherhood. A telling social realist portrait.

  2. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Some quite powerful moments and good acting from the two leads. A generally well-structured screenplay which judges the issues it deals with well. It rejects stereotypes, particularly in its good portrayal of the strong but not controlling mother. But the plot is a little predictable... And while dialogue at times feels intentionally simple, it's often just banal and repetitious, particularly in the use of slang.

  3. janh24's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    An extra star for the eminently likeable performances here, elevating what is otherwise a fairly conventional feature.

  4. raggiodisole's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Pride is such a bad thing.Profound inevitability lies at the heart of this film, but do not let this alter your view of a sound film with sound performances at its heart

  5. ruthlornaadele's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Great photography! Interesting characters which know their own unravelling is juuuust on the horizon, yet never quite manage to change course. A little clichéd in theme, but I'll be keen to see more from Dibb.

  6. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Conventional, yet arresting... hard not to feel a vague distaste towards all the white professionals in the film who keep the system of oppression churning. The character of Leon was a locus for hope.

  7. Alice's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Possibly not everyones' cup of tea, but I loved this film. Spent half of it internally screaming "Nooo!" the rest heartbreaking as characters that connect with the viewer so easily fall apart.

  8. Andrew Tighe's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Solid debut from Saul Dibb. I would like to see him return to this kind of roots filmmaking in the near future. It's a tragic yet ultimately preventable story that highlights the saddening cycle of violence in East London. Luke Fraser (Curtis) gives an impressive performance.

  9. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    A brilliant film. Real, emotional, tragic.

  10. Christopher Edward Campbell's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    A decent film portraying the life of inner city youths and their bid to escape the never-ending cycle of violence and confrontation. Ashley Walters puts in a decent performance here as well as Luke Fraser who plays his younger brother. All in all a good effort and worth the watch if you are into these kind of films.

  11. Richard Parkins's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Unfortunately predictable, disappointing and cliché at times - more could have been done by its makers to have realised its full potential.

  12. Boldizsár CR's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    It has it´s flaws but obviously the director knows what he is talking about. Great and true flavour of this prt of London beautifully photographed. True cast as well. Definitely worth to watch.

  13. LiG's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    Criminally underrated. Shames the likes of Menace To Society. This film doesn't feel fake, as its Hollywood counterparts do.

  14. Aston J Taylor's rating of the film Bullet Boy

    I'd give this fim a five star one sick story to it.
