These girls are brilliantly un-victimy and always come out fighting. If only they weren't incessantly paraded about in their underwear for the viewing pleasure of men.
It practically nudges you with its 'come on, cheer up' charm.
I admire the ambition. Unfortunately, it's the execution that fails here.
The plotting is clumsy, the characterisation scraggy and the dialogue clunky- but you can't accuse Clarke of lacking ambition, even if his film does display a yawning gulf between aspiration and accomplishment.
full review at Movies for the Masses
A complete absence of wit and some truly terrible writing and acting makes for one bluntly bad movie.
I regret to say I enjoyed nearly every minute.
There's something a bit off about the whole film for me. It just wasn't making it. It was chaotic without being very illuminating.
This is pretty much a girl power movie, Tarantino style, with jump cuts, fast cuts, split screens and a lot of lip. And for the most part it's fun.
Like most of those movies that purport to tell it like it is for the fashionably chic young, the result is as cheesy and sentimental as it pretends to be streetwise.
Clarke does all he can to grab your attention but then you learn he has nothing worth saying. A big disappointment.
188.8.131.52. is shrill, histrionic and a little bit naff when it could have been cool, hip and exciting.
Not a bad movie, it kept me interested so i'd watch it again.
I thnk Noel Clarke has got some talent in his movies and he picks an exceptional cast, ive always llked stoyrlines like this where they all interlink. worth a watch
"4 Girls, 3 Days, 2 Cities, 1 Chance....."
While Jo (Roberts) is chained down in a dead end supermarket job, her friends are all out on their own separate adventures: Cassandra (Egerton) is jetting off to New York to meet her Internet boyfriend; Kerrys (Warren-Markland) is on a one woman crusade fighting for female liberation and Shannon (Lovibond) is on a one way trip to meet her maker.
A generic and immature offering. The film is entertaining, if you can slide aside some terrible performances. It's something a teenager would write after watching Lock,Stock..., Pulp Fiction and GO!. Those fast paced crime films reveled in their daft dialogue, awesome soundtrack choices, and large ensembles. Unfortunately, 184.108.40.206 seems as though nobody read the thing before making it. The huge amount of coincidences do nothing but cheapen the film. As the four stories are revealed, some seem to have nothing to do with anything, while others have so much going on it's impossible to give a fudge. Why did I need to see the story about a girl going to New York, being tricked into sex, etc. I don't know. Other than it opening up some American locales and bizarre Kevin Smith/Mandy Patenkin roles appearances. I don't mind a few "What are the odds?" moments in my movies, but this film is dependent on them. In a true sign of incompetent writing, every time the film hits a dead end, a lucky coincidence kicks the story down the road. If you stick films on and don't intend to think about it ever again, then you should watch this. It can be a bit infuriating for others.
The heist happens off screen. The diamonds sparkle for seconds. 220.127.116.11 is as much about a crime, really, as Citizen Kane is about sledding. Yes, it's an effective thriller, but slickly sliced and whip-paced as it is, the movie is powered by character, and that's what makes it work. Co-directing from his own script and co-starring as the nefarious Tee, Noel Clarke provides the same pungent sense of place and people he gave his latest movie council-estate combo. His scope is broader, through, mixing nationalities, classes and motivations. Beyond that, this is a great London movie. One story-strand may take place in the Big Apple, but everything comes home to Big Ben's Town - captured as chaotic, glorious, ugly and sweet.
