It's a comically inept and unfocused piece of filmmaking, with 'This Is England'-lite period detail attained by what looks like a bring-your-own-costume policy.

A piece of violent geezer-porn.

Overcomes its low budget suspenseful story, sympathetic leads and cracking '80s soundtrack.

It's surprisingly good: well written, nicely acted and beautifully scored.

Jan 16, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a dreadful piece of writing, compounded by an array of shockingly poor performances.

Jan 16, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Director Neil Thompson's literally hardhitting tale of a turning worm who transforms himself from meek factory drone to strutting nightclub doorman doesn't cast a light on anything.

Audience Reviews for Clubbed

Stylish gangsterish Brit film written by Geoff Thompson (based on his autobiography "WATCH MY BACK" ) about a single father who becomes a boxer and a bouncer to rebuild his self-esteem and protect his kids after he's picked on by local gang bullies. Nice supporting turns from Colin Salmon and Shaun Parkes as his fellow bouncers, plus a nostaligic 80's soundtrack, this is more lively than I expected, with as much violence as I expected.
