Critic Reviews for The End

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (6)

  • Inevitably, this is a sympathetic, one-sided film and its familiar perspective is a nostalgic, sometimes tiresome one that imagines a 'golden age' when grannies could leave their doors open at night.

    May 1, 2009 | Rating: 2/6 | Full Review…
  • The flesh-crawling thrill is that these stories about armed robberies, ghastly fights, and grisly murders are utterly compelling.

    May 1, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Intentionally or not, Nicola Collins's filmed interviews with various old-school East End geezers give us a fair idea of their sentimentality, paranoia, smugness and flashes of humour.

    May 1, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a disappointingly reverential exercise in East End mythologising that's too busy sucking up to its rheumily sentimental interviewees to spend enough time exploring the few interesting observations they do make.

    May 1, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film, a success on the festival circuit, has been described as "carving, visceral, right in your face... scary, gob-smacking". I merely concur, in case they know where I live.

  • This grainy documentary that lets the Cockney hard men brag about violence, honour codes and the changed East End. Director Collins appeared with her sister Teena in Guy Ritchie's Snatch. That explains a lot.

  • The film is a flavourful record of what is - as the interviewees are well aware - a vanishing culture, but it doesn't dig deep.

    May 7, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A movie that is non-judgmental to the point of celebration.
