Movie Info

Actor-turned-director Gary Love makes his feature debut with this screen adaptation of co-screenwriter Dominic Leyton's acclaimed stage production Collision. Tom (Steven Mackintosh) is a middle class city boy who is currently scouring the back streets of London in search of an elusive and unnamed object. When Tom comes into contact with desperate young crack addict D (Ashley Walters), it looks as if he may have finally found what he's been looking for. Now, with time running out for Tom and D and psychotic local crime-lord Hoodwink (Andy Serkis) quickly closing in, the pair enter into a deadly game of cat and mouse that finds their mysterious goals gradually coming into focus as their hope to see another day glows ever more dim. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Sugarhouse

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

Three good actors get hijacked by a talky, pointless script.

Top Critic

Although the writing's exploration of common humanity across the social divide offers occasional worthwhile moral provocation, its evident theatricality also works against any sense of urban authenticity.

Time Out
Top Critic

Strains so hard to establish some sort of rough street cred that it ends up feeling artificial.

Shadows on the Wall

The film, in the end, looks very much like an adaptation of one of those preachy plays that tries too hard to tell it like it is among the underclass.

August 24, 2007
London Evening Standard

Directed by Gary Love, early shots promise much but it never delivers. Essentially a Play For Today, with more crack and a syrupy ending you can see coming.

In Gary Love's determinedly gritty Brit-crim movie, three good actors chase around a script that keeps promising more than it delivers.

This screen adaptation of co-screenwriter Dominic Leyton's stage production Collision was a wonderful choice for Gary Love who makes his feature debut with Tarantino feel Sugarhouse. It's time to switch from British historical fakes to a real time movies... and to enjoy!

a little depressing, but i love andy serkis as hoodwink in this movie. the character of hoodwink is actually my favorite part. from the bizarre tattoos to the stress relieving words he steals the glory. the fight scenes are pretty wicked. i also kinda like the character d for his sheer absurdity

Slow paced, but superbly acted, starring some of Britain?s most underrated Actors. The acting was so good, that parts had no dialogue at all and yet the storyline continued along its way. A gritty and realistic approach, which really added to the scenes of violence etc. An insightful look into a world few people will ever experience and some wish they didn?t.
