100 Streets has passion and is well-meaning, but the film's plot often misfires and leaves a sense of emptiness in its wake.
April 9, 2017
Director Jim O'Hanlon gives the well-chosen locations an impressive sheen, but Leon F Butler's contrived script soaks everyone in soap.
January 18, 2017
The mark of a brilliant actor is that he/she can give a compelling performance even in a film that doesn't shine.
January 13, 2017
Unfortunately, 100 Streets' parts are greater than the whole, forcing it to crash and burn after an absolutely ludicrous third act.
January 13, 2017
Reader, I despise this movie.
January 13, 2017
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.
January 13, 2017
Jim O'Hanlon's drama offers forgettable performances and mediocre BBC One-level melodrama.
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
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 9, 2017
Throughout the film's three interconnected stories, Jim O'Hanlon favors the blunt, maudlin manipulations of Crash.
November 16, 2016
"A Hundred Streets" seems oddly unequal to the status of its charismatic name cast, headlined by Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton.
November 13, 2016
The cast perform strongly, especially the charismatic Drameh and Charlie Creed-Miles as a cabbie trying to adopt a child, but the material lets them down; a melodramatic climax is particularly embarrassing.
November 13, 2016
A solid cast can't save this soapy three-stranded London drama.
November 10, 2016
Given the talent involved, 100 Streets can't help but seem disappointing.
November 10, 2016
It is watchable enough, but it's ended up on the wrong size of screen.
November 10, 2016
This film is very nicely shot and acted, but the simplistic script makes it difficult to properly engage with.
November 10, 2016
100 Streets stars Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton, leading one to hope that this drama set in a square mile of Battersea might be gripping. Instead the film feels like a slice of a soap opera, dredging up every London cliché.
