The clock starts to drag, and some energy is lost. But the movie displays a lot of promise both in front of and behind the lens.

Credit to Buxton here for extracting conviction from such young actors. The performances aren't wholly redemptive, but they are compelling.

Though I appreciate Buxton's rookie attempt to present an alternative look at teen rage, I can't help seeing that this overreaching film goes nowhere with only clichés to guide it.

Told with a rare mix of humanity and procedural clarity that recalls, nay, honours the late, great Alan Clarke.

...the film ultimately feels much, much longer than its 103 minutes.
