Critic Reviews for Freestyle
Shabbily filmed and poorly acted, its lone positive is a compellingly awful turn by Alfie (brother of Lily) Allen, whose bumbling, velour-tracksuited date-rapist is the sleaziest thing youâ(TM)ll see this year.
Apart from Arinze Kene, the male lead, the stilted performances here, are enough to put anyone off.
Freestyle is a string of flashily edited musical montages of East London youth playing basketball, hung on the flimsy framework of a sub-Grange-Hill-quality script.
Some of the ball-spinning and torso-wiggling is genuinely impressive, and it's refreshing to see such stuff played out with the backdrop of a recognisable modern Britain.
Although the acting is generally closer to Grange Hill than Drury Lane, Kene shows bags of potential.
