Audience Reviews for Made in Britain


Tim Roth's tour-de-force debut role. The film itself has little to nothing to say. Gritty cinematography with cold and sloppy storytelling. Roth, again, is mesmerizing.

Made in Britain, Brilliant it captivates some londoners true love for britain there own country and how people feel about foreigners and Tim Roth played the part fantasticulary he was excellent this movie is funy with tim roths witty back chat and just an enjoyable film to watch, although the ending just seems to abrupt and for a very short movie of just 1hr 11mins i think the ending should have been better!
but this movie is really worth a watch especially if your a tim roth fan!

Film Crazy

Long before Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, Tim Roth stars in this drama about a British skinhead racist that is anti-authority and heading for a path of self-destruction.

A good early performance by Roth, but lacked in gritty storyline ? it?s certainly not a ?This is England?.
