The film certainly has a chillingly predictable arc -- and there's something slightly glib about the upbeat ending -- but it's a very accomplished debut by a film-maker who knows what suspense may be found in the mundane.

Audience Reviews for Bullet Boy

Realistic acting and a harsh reflection of the gun culture amongst Britain?s youth in this time. The realism perhaps made the film lack a little excitement and as a result was failry slow moving at times, so although this is more of an average rating, it's acting is perhaps much better than that.

Documentary-maker Saul Dibb makes a creditable feature debut with this tough, heartfelt British social picture about what we quaintly call "gun crime".
