100 Streets has passion and is well-meaning, but the film's plot often misfires and leaves a sense of emptiness in its wake.
October 18, 2017
Acting and writing are a little uneven, and the three strands sometimes feel contrived, but there's a strong central theme about the mess that people make of their lives and the mess that life can make of people.

100 Streets doesn't redefine the genre, but it's an all around solid film that's worth checking out.

Director Jim O'Hanlon gives the well-chosen locations an impressive sheen, but Leon F Butler's contrived script soaks everyone in soap.

The mark of a brilliant actor is that he/she can give a compelling performance even in a film that doesn't shine.

Unfortunately, 100 Streets' parts are greater than the whole, forcing it to crash and burn after an absolutely ludicrous third act.

Can we speak of an "art-house programmer" in 2017 and not be entirely dismissive about it? Something that looks good, moves well across a large screen, rather than coming to your awareness as a "Recommended For You" icon?

Reader, I despise this movie.

Despite a few powerful moments, any meaningful emotional resonance is severely compromised by the film's emphasis on eye-rolling contrivances and heavy-handed melodrama.

Jim O'Hanlon's drama offers forgettable performances and mediocre BBC One-level melodrama.

Soapy but affecting.

Elba oozes charisma and intelligent physicality even when on his knees snorting a line of coke ...
January 12, 2017
It's a portrait of similar struggles existing in proximity of time and place; of individual battles being fought side by side yet alone.
January 12, 2017
It's six or so characters in search of a meaningful movie.
January 12, 2017
"100 Streets" looks to detail the capacity of the human heart during its darkest trials, but it only connects periodically.
January 12, 2017
This is isn't an earth-shaking new drama, but there's enough here to keep a sympathetic Anglophile interested in a modern story about love, loss and redemption all the way across the pond.
January 12, 2017
The actors are fine, but the material doesn't give their talents much room to stretch.
January 12, 2017
Though there's clearly a compassionate impulse behind Leon F. Butler's class-conscious screenplay, it rapidly devolves into implausible melodrama.
January 11, 2017
100 Streets doesn't fully develop one story; three threaten to float off the screen from weightlessness.
January 11, 2017
An appealing ensemble makes the most of this rote melodrama charting the occasionally intersecting lives of several South Londoners.
