Critic Reviews for Sket

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

A film of real substance that shows a timely interest in how and why gangs materialise.

Time Out
Top Critic

A film that, for all its grit and attitude, lacks sufficient cred.

Full Review… | October 31, 2011
Total Film

It's a confused and confusing movie with odd good moments, but has little by way of revealing insight other than the suggestion that the girl gangsters need loving parents and the protection of a nurturing family.

Full Review… | October 30, 2011
Observer (UK)

Thanks to the posturing, intrusive soundtrack and implausible, clichéd script, it's hard to take any of it too seriously.

This is London

Despite some confusing narrative turns, writer-director Nirpal Bhogal's thriller is an impactful and authentic look at gang culture on London's meaner streets.

Audience Reviews for Sket

It should have been me who killed him.

A gang violently attacks a girl killing her. The girl's sixteen year old little sister wants revenge for the death of her sister and best friend and joins a ruthless female gang; however, even the ruthless female gang doesn't dare mess with the gang that killed the girl's sister. When the female gang sees the ruthless gang in action, and impacting some of their own, they may change their mind.

"Still murking people?"
"Still fucking them?"

Nirpal Bhogal, director of episodes from the television series Misfits, delivers Skets in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is unique in the way it is told and is about a stray young lady and contains a sub plot of a female gang with nothing to lose. I did enjoy the concept and character development. The acting was also pretty good and the cast includes Lily Loveless, Riann Steele, Aimee Kelly, Emma Hartley-Miller, Richie Campbell, Ashley Walters, and Adelayo Adedayo.

"You going to do something useful with yourself?"

Sket is a movie I came across on Netflix that was recommended to me. The reviews were fairly high so I gave it a chance. I will say this is better than average and contains some unique qualities, but this is far from a classic for the genre. This is an interesting coming of age mixed with gangster film. I would watch this once but wouldn't add it to my DVD collection.

"You fucking made me!"

Grade: C+
