Much of the dialogue is drowned by thumping music.
Turnout is well acted and nicely paced, but it struggles to find the right tone and it's ultimately let down by an unlikeable lead character, the occasional snatch of dodgy dialogue and some irritating script problems.
While Turnout is hardly a slice of London life like you've never seen before, Sales is certainly one to watch.
Lee Sales's film makes Hoxton look like purgatory, what with George's friends, pubs blaring music and nearly everyone sniffing the stuff. Our poor middle-class girl hasn't got a chance.
What went wrong for Ophelia Lovibond? It was all looking gangbusters after a string of entry-level Hollywood roles. Now here she is, bolt-on girlfriend in a third-rate Brit lad-flick.
There's a lot of talent both in front of and behind the camera on this gripping, low-budget London drama, so it's frustrating that the script doesn't give everyone more to work with.
No spine, no sympathy. No sympathy, no interest. No interest, no point. You get me, bruv?
As the film's slick look shows, first-time director Lee Sales has a good eye, and a good cinematographer (James Friend), but he's a lot shakier when it comes to creating a convincing story.
Plenty of 'he's-not-is-he?' observational details, nice performances and some genuinely funny moments make up for the patchy plotting.
Star and co-writer George Russo clearly has an ear for swaggering male patois.
