  • Underneath the street locations and locally cast actors, however, this is as slickly vapid and Hollywood (in the bad sense) as it gets.

  • There's a lot to admire, from the honesty about the brutality of gang culture, its pungent sense of place and the vitality of its young cast.

  • El Arbi and Fallah will be back, and probably with something stronger than this.

  • The filmmaking is aesthetically sublime, but that's about all it's got going, and by its climax, you're just waiting for them to check the double-murder boxes.

  • An uncompromising look at posturing teens emotionally unequipped with the adult world, reminiscent of genre standouts like Kids and City of God, complete with a heavy pinch of social unrest and interracial conflict which calls to mind La Haine.

    Oct 13, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The potency of this depiction, with its powder-keg tensions, starts with an unflinching approach behind the camera.
