Thesping is a bit rough in places, but of a piece with the film's shouty, in-your-face style, though Clarke himself gives a powerful performance...and keeps up that pic's frenetic split-screen and popvid rhythms.

Audience Reviews for Adulthood

A good fo[low up to the first film Kidulthood, set 6 years later with Sam being released from prison. It's not quite as dramatic as the first, but still a good film. Nice to see the majority of the same cast, made 3 years after the first, now looking a bit older. This film centers around Sam mainly. Some might find the slang a bit too quick, hard to understand......but a lot of young boys do sound like that in London! A good film dealing with revenge and growing up and showing that violence wont get you anywhere.

Written and Directed by Noel Clarke, this sequel to Kidulthood isn?t quite so fast moving as, yet it builds up nicely to a climatic ending.

Based on revenge, the follow up film cleverly flips the coin on whose side you are rooting for and maintains the gritty, realism of the urban youth of Britain today.

Incidentally for those watching this as Danny Dyer film, there may be some disappointment as his appearance is little more than a cameo role.

Well the second one doesnt disappoint especially if you enjoyed the first these are brilliant work from noel clarke he really is talented.
the storyline is brilliant the acting is brilliant and there are a lot of young new actors in it. You get to see what its like for kids in london that are struggling and this film continues from the first where noel clarke has killled trife and is trying to move on but you see all the horrors hes gone through and at atages you start to fill sorry for him!
This movie is brilliant and well worth a watch!

Worthy followup to kidulthood which continues its themes and offers a creditable redemption for the lead.
