Critic Reviews for Shank

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (10)

  • There are a fair few good ideas in Shank -- a nicely-staged market scene featuring Colin Salmon and an animated fight scene being two -- but they don't come together into anything that even looks halfway like a movie.

  • Just when you thought grimy gang drama had run out of steam, along comes this dystopian variation, set in a recession-ravaged London 2015.

  • With its jarring slang, reckless narrative and offbeat imagery, it's as close to being A Clockwork Orange for the Broken Britain generation as we have. It's up to you to decide whether that's a good thing or not.

  • If this is the future of film then we're all doomed.

    March 25, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Diverting enough, but the makers clearly think they're making a statement about knife crime in London and the possibility of it spiralling out of control.

    May 19, 2021 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • The risible script is incoherent, the dialogue frequently unintelligible and the story is nothing new.

Audience Reviews for Shank

    There's not a lot of love out there for Shank, but I for one quite enjoyed it. I understand it won't be for everyone, and I do come into it with a bit of a bias, but the only way you'll know for sure if you can appreciate Shank (and decipher its various UK accents) is to watch it for yourself.

    "Everything about this film is mediocre. The acting, script, and directing. I could barely understand what some of the dialogue was. I even had the captions on and it said inaudible. So it wasn't just me. That's about all I gotta say about this flick."

    very kidulthood in its aproach, set in 5 years time, and the poverty line has grown further from the wealthy, and for poor, food is currency, and a group of friends trying to make there way make there way across the burough, which is forbidden, kind off a hoodie youths warriors, lots of hip hop and youth culture going on, and for most part its entertaining, a interesting watch from these lkind of youth fils thats coming out of the u.k recently

    Should have been called "Pony" - atrocious and poorly executed rip off of The Warriors and other such decaying future flicks. it is clear that Mo Ali is a music video director as he shows some interesting visual flourishes, but the script and narrative development are appalling. This seems to have been made off the back of the success of Kidulthood (same distributor) without realising what made that film work (I suggest you look at Noel Clarke's script). Anyway, was so appalling I couldn't bear to watch it to the end as I didn't care about any of the characters. More wank than shank.
