I regret to say I enjoyed nearly every minute.

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.

4.3.2.1 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.

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.

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.

Total Film

Lacking the polish of the Tarantino frescoes he's striving to emulate, Clarke's multistrander still packs enough infectious gusto, humour and surprising detours to paper its obvious cracks. He's still on the way up, but the future is bright.

Daily Mirror [UK]

An edgy and ambitious crime thriller that feels like a homegrown Tarantino movie.

Sky Movies

Borrowing liberally from Tarantino's motor-mouthing, whiplash-editing style, this fast-moving tale barrels along at breakneck speed and -- even if it occasionally trips itself up -- is to be lauded for its smart-gobbed ambition.

I admire the ambition. Unfortunately, it's the execution that fails here.

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 London

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.

4.3.2.1. is shrill, histrionic and a little bit naff when it could have been cool, hip and exciting.

Little White Lies

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.
