Movie Info

'1 DAY' is the first ever British hip-hop musical and a very, very bad day in the life of hustler, Flash. Entirely street cast and featuring original hip-hop and grime tracks from young rappers in Birmingham, this hard hitting film gets under the skin of guns, gangs and life on road.

  • A well-intentioned misfire.

    November 6, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's propulsive stuff that credibly mixes social realism with bursts of musical energy. Just occasionally, though, the movie falls for the gangland glamour - loving shots of guns, cars and posturing bad boys - it claims to despise.

  • By turns gloomy, frenzied, downbeat and violently melodramatic, Penny Woolcock's gang grime musical throbs intermittently with energy.

    November 6, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Woolcock doesn't strictly glamourise this guns-'n'-babymothers lifestyle, but her shortcuts to gritty pathos are nearly as questionable.

    November 6, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Woolcock has overcome all odds to produce one of the best British flicks since This Is England.

    November 6, 2009 | Rating: 5/5
  • Undoubtedly well acted and shot, and with a rip-roaring hip-hop score, it's impressively non-moralistic, just showing us how it is. That may be why Birmingham's cinemas have refused to show it.
