Critic Reviews for Pimp

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

With its excessive levels of casual racism, sexism and homophobia, the film feels like nothing more than a rejected 'Derek and Clive' sketch that's been stripped of eloquence and irony and calibrated instead for cheap, leery laughs.

Everything about this supposedly raw exposé feels like yesterday's news.

Tight close-ups and direct-to- camera confessionals are the order of the day in a film so peppered with sleazy sex, casual violence and endless swearing that it comes perilously close to caricature. Nobody's finest hour.

The plot, concerning the identity of a snuff-movie killer, is a gruesome mixture of sexual sadism and sentimentality, made even less palatable by dialogue of quarter-witted aggression.

Awful -- bad acting, the worst kind of cockney clichés.

The sight of Dyer operating under the delusion he's channelling Al Pacino is grim enough, but the real blame must be laid at the door of director/star/co-writer Cavanah, who seriously underperforms in all three roles.
