Writer/director Noel Clarke (Kidulthood, Adulthood) returns to the helm for this frenetic urban thriller following four friends who went their separate ways, but find their fates colliding following a chance meeting with a group of ruthless diamond thieves. Jo (Emma Roberts, Cassandra (Tasmin Egerton), Kerrys (Shanika Warren-Markland) and Shannon (Ophelia Lovibond) used to be inseparable, but lately they've begun to grow apart. As Jo struggles for a sense of direction while earning a meager

These girls are brilliantly un-victimy and always come out fighting. If only they weren't incessantly paraded about in their underwear for the viewing pleasure of men.
The plotting is clumsy, the characterisation scraggy and the dialogue clunky- but you can't accuse Clarke of lacking ambition, even if his film does display a yawning gulf between aspiration and accomplishment.
A complete absence of wit and some truly terrible writing and acting makes for one bluntly bad movie.
There's something a bit off about the whole film for me. It just wasn't making it. It was chaotic without being very illuminating.
This is pretty much a girl power movie, Tarantino style, with jump cuts, fast cuts, split screens and a lot of lip. And for the most part it's fun.
Like most of those movies that purport to tell it like it is for the fashionably chic young, the result is as cheesy and sentimental as it pretends to be streetwise.
Clarke does all he can to grab your attention but then you learn he has nothing worth saying. A big disappointment.
220.127.116.11. is shrill, histrionic and a little bit naff when it could have been cool, hip and exciting.
The multithreads, a la Pulp Fiction, weave and collide, but it's all too linear, too telegraphed, its influences too obvious, its edges sanded down by compromise.
It brings me no joy to say it, but Clarke's filmmaking is like a narcissistic strut from someone who needs to brush up on walking.
The dialogue's clunky and the ludicrous plot is full of holes. It's a great relief when real talent like Ben Miller appear -- but he's only in it for a couple of minutes.
Paragraph after paragraph can be spent dissecting the flaws, the portrayal of men as either evil or nerdish, and the cringeworthy decision to make the lead actresses all strip down to their skimpies at various stages of the movie.
Noel Clarke, blowing his promise as the debut director of Kidulthood, blends youth romp with international thriller.
18.104.22.168 is a totally untested mash-up of slick, Hollywood-style action and edgy British teen drama. And not only does it work -- it works brilliantly.
There's an interesting idea in this film, as we watch four people over the same three days while their experiences converge into one story. But the plot is riddled with holes and filmmaker Clarke strains to hold it together.
Flashy, fast-paced and unashamedly trashy, this is a supremely shallow but no less enjoyable thriller, enlivened by strong performances, snappy editing and a willingness not to take itself too seriously.
