Movie Info

A party becomes a metaphor for the wasted lives of a handful of young hipsters in this edgy independent drama. Syd (Chris Evans) awakes from the latest in a long series of drug- and booze-fueled benders when he receiving a phone call from a friend informing him that London (Jessica Biel), who recently broke up with Syd, will be moving away from New York for California with her new boyfriend in a few days, and that a going-away party is being thrown for her that evening. Syd hasn't been invited

'You are so annoying!' our hero screams in the heroine's face, halfway through London. 'You are 10 times more annoying than me!' our heroine quickly answers. They're both right.

The title refers to the name of one of a grouping of some of the most numbingly self-absorbed and obnoxious characters ever assembled in a single film.

Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy spends hours in a bathroom snorting a mother lode of cocaine while annoying everyone within earshot with his tales of woe. Sounds like a great idea for a movie. Let's do it!

...ultimately comes off as a well-intentioned failure that admittedly might hold some appeal for fans of the various actors...

An acting exercise (and not a very interesting one) disguised as a film.

London is a very simple character piece that is not for every taste. I recommend the film, but I fully expect some that see it based on my recommendation will curse my name come the end credits.

While it shouldn't work, it does.

Greenwich Village Gazette

Grating and wildly unpleasant from beginning to end, London is perhaps one of the least entertaining films that I can recall seeing.

London's pretensions far outstrip its dorm-level contemplation of life's big issues.

I've seen more ferocious, and entertaining, spectacles at Raffi concerts.

The only thing more tedious than stoned people philosophizing about the existence of God is boys who can't bring themselves to say 'I love you.'

February 11, 2006 Full Review Source:

[The] script is so free of genuine insight into his beautiful but childish characters that it's hard to work up any sympathy for their shallow, juvenile problems.

Let's hope this movie hasn't come out too early in the year to be remembered for a well-deserved Razzie.

Audience Reviews for London

As the synopsis shows London is a drug laden adventure which centres in a New York Loft where a young man is trying to win back his girlfriend. at first i thought. 'another cheesy movie'. i don't know what made me watch it but when i was finished i was absolutely GOBSMACKED!. 'London' is such an original and most importantly a very simple movie which is directed to its utmost perfection. Bateman (Jason Statham) is absolutely flawless in this movie as is Syd (Chris Evans). You begin to understand their characters straight away as both actors bring them to life wonderfully... i don't want to spoil the rest for you so ill finish on this note.. 'its a must see' ......

A lot smarter and realistic than you might expect. It has a really well driven plot and none of the characters are corny or over-the-top like many other post-teen dramas. It shows you how utterly pointless most arguments are, but that there is always a chance for redemption. Chris Evans and Jason Statham are the perfect match together, telling each other life lessons and handing out philosophy. The look, content and message is great, nailing the trust fund baby lifestyle perfectly and not just doing a cop out with numerous party scenes and sex.

It's sensational entertainment. Riveting, sexy, electrifying and wildly funny. A cool soundtrack. Chris Evans is electric. Jason Statham is brilliant. They deliver terrific chemistry with their pure powerhouse perfromances. This is the type of film that puts you in these characters shoes and makes you feel what their feeling. Well writen and directed. Evans hits you like you wouldnt belive. Statham is an absolute surprise. These two actors give unforgettable performances that show their stellar star capability. A fantastic movie.

Psychological drama about a man, upon learning his ex-girlfriend is about to leave for California, decides to crash a party thrown in her honor. Most of the film takes place in the bathroom where these self absorbed pseudo-hipsters pontificate about nothing while snorting endless amounts of cocaine. Film has the questionable distinction of making an attractive and talented cast, so incredibly boring. Incidentally, Chris Evans, Jason Statham and Jessica Biel also worked together in Cellular, an infinitely better film.
