Critic Reviews for Awaydays
The film falls down in its effort to make credible the background stories of its well-performed lead characters.
Awaydays comes close to being lumped in with every other British indie but the excellent production quality pull it through and director Pat Holden is left with another promising, if flawed, adventure.
Bell's wholehearted performance and the film's convincingly scuzzy atmosphere don't make up for the big hole in the script.
A quality cast, strong performances and excellent period detail keep it feeling real.
There's no shortage of movies about Britain's mean streets and, for the most part, Awaydays runs with the pack.
Audience Reviews for Awaydays
I've seen a ton of these at this point. The football gang movies. The realization that you have to get out and leave the old life behind in order to progress. This one's better than some, worse than others.
Corny coming of age story backdrop but still kinda solid overall. Good performance delivered by the 2 main actors Nicky Bell & Liam Boyle, Bell in particular.
Hugely dissapointed with this...what the hell it thought it was supposed to be I dont know. There is no comparrison between books and the film adaptation but this one was even worse....I have absolutely no problems with people being gay but this film wasnt s0 sure. I know it was set in 1979 but is it a love story? Is it film about football violence or people being bored with their ordinary lives?.....God knows cause this film didnt...I sat there totally bemused and im sure most of you will be too.....so much potential so little outcome.....and the fight scenes were crap!
