Cherry Bomb (2004)
Critic Reviews for Cherry Bomb
Dare bests truth at each turn in Cherrybomb, a zippy if over-schematic teen pic from tyro helmers Lisa Barros D'Sa and Glenn Leyburn.
A valiant effort, but a little too yoof by numbers to be taken seriously.
While it never quite manages to shake off the E4 vibe, it's good to see Grint stretching his wings.
Cherrybomb is an unaffected, if disposable, tribute to youthful misadventure.
This reasonably polished slice of Skins-style youthsploitation makes such a fake and undangerous lurch into pills-and-vandalism melodrama.
Audience Reviews for Cherry Bomb
A group of guys rape a stripper. She goes after them and tries to kill them. They hire a killer to kill her and her brother. This movie was pretty shit. The bad guy was horrible. The acting was bad. Complete 'B' film. Waste of time.
Designed for audience range of age 17-19, which will certainly limit it's box office, so this is a DVD movie. A rocker that doesn't quite rock. Cute poses, style, good photography, editing, all the elements to make something memorable, but Cherrybomb does not quite make a real movie. More bomb than cherry. Almost successful. Robert Sheehan does the best acting in this film, but it seems like he's in the wrong movie.
