Movie Info

Hot shot Premiership footballer Jerome seems to have it all - a luxury flat, a fast car, any girl he wants, and a booming career. A vast contrast to the council estate life he left behind. Following a run-in with his old estate crew, his world is turned upside down as he gets caught up in the gangland ways his friends still pursue, and before long finds himself being blackmailed by the dealers, crooks and dropouts he used to hang around with. Adding to this is his younger brother Anton, who

Donnelly, better known for his work in the music industry, ensures there's enough juddering dubstep on the soundtrack to drown out his pedestrian dialogue.

A bit too heavyhanded as hoodies hit the football pitches.

Nothing rings true, not even the tones on the characters' mobile phones.

Adam Deacon, winner of the Bafta Rising Star Award, explores the nightmarish condition of fame, starring as a Premiership footballer who finds himself used as a cashpoint by former homies, and having his privacy invaded by scandal-sniffing tabloids.

Poorly directed and often excruciating to watch, this is a painfully pedestrian British drama with a simplistic, finger-wagging script and an awkward central performance from BAFTA Rising Star Adam Deacon.

Adam has talent, but he'll need superior material to maintain his rise.

No amount of yoofsploitation grit could obscure the moral guidance in this story, making it a kids' film in spirit, if not certificate.

Cynical fodder aimed squarely at perceived yoof demographic. Poor.

Debut director Danny Donnelly's thriller settles snugly alongside similar geezerish fare such as Kidulthood. Which is to say it isn't very good.

A blackmail thriller that's more non-league than Premiership.

Favouring its relentless dubstep soundtrack over its characters, the film feels like more like background filler.
