Three good actors get hijacked by a talky, pointless script.

Top Critic

Although the writing's exploration of common humanity across the social divide offers occasional worthwhile moral provocation, its evident theatricality also works against any sense of urban authenticity.

Top Critic

Strains so hard to establish some sort of rough street cred that it ends up feeling artificial.

The film, in the end, looks very much like an adaptation of one of those preachy plays that tries too hard to tell it like it is among the underclass.

This is London

Directed by Gary Love, early shots promise much but it never delivers. Essentially a Play For Today, with more crack and a syrupy ending you can see coming.

In Gary Love's determinedly gritty Brit-crim movie, three good actors chase around a script that keeps promising more than it delivers.

Audience Reviews for Sugarhouse

Slow paced, but superbly acted, starring some of Britain?s most underrated Actors. The acting was so good, that parts had no dialogue at all and yet the storyline continued along its way. A gritty and realistic approach, which really added to the scenes of violence etc.

An insightful look into a world few people will ever experience and some wish they didn?t.

This screen adaptation of co-screenwriter Dominic Leyton's stage production Collision was a wonderful choice for Gary Love who makes his feature debut with Tarantino feel Sugarhouse. It's time to switch from British historical fakes to a real time movies... and to enjoy!
