As a youth, Alan Darcy (Bob Hoskins) avoided getting sucked into violent gang life in Nottingham by taking out his aggression at a boxing club. Years later, the same grim temptations of crime and drugs from his upbringing threaten to lure a new generation of young public housing residents into a downward spiral. With financial help from gangster Ronnie Marsh (Frank Harper), Alan reopens the gym he went to in his youth and begins training his troubled recruits for a public boxing match.

    Touching performance from Bob Hoskins and a witty script make for a low key gem.

    calling all shane meadows fans, before, dead mans shoes, this is england, a room for romeo brass, and one upon a time in the midlands was his debut, a brilliant portrayal of young unemployed kids growing up in nottingham, in the north of england, and a man, played by bob hoskins who opens up a boxing club, trying his best to broaden the bored youths minds, as the club gets noticed, and various things to do, will this new influence in there lives be the 1 thing they need, meadows has made no secret hes a scorsese fan, so this is definatly his whos that knocking at my door, a debut shot on grainy black and white, making use of locations at hand, a great boost getting hoskins to be in this as well, he must really believed in meadows, again like all his films the acting is top notch, getting untrained actors in inportant parts works, the natural way they act and sound, adds to the story, just like this is england, its all in the words. great soundtrack as well, the best of british

    Twentyfourseven is another gritty urban tale from Shane Meadows, and tells the story of Darcy, a man trying to organize a small inner city boxing club to teach the local lads self respect and keep them out of trouble. This being a Shane Meadows film, you know going into it it's not going to be one of those typical formulaic feelgood sports movies that plague modern cinema. In fact as I watched the camaraderie and respect grow between the lads, I was just waiting for the ACME anvil to land on my head! And so it did, but not in the painfully depressing way one might expect. Although Meadows thankfully sidestepped the usual cliches and brought an element of grim reality into play, it still manages to end on a comparatively positive note without resorting to the usual sentimental slop. Hoskins is as good as always as the small man trying to make a difference in his small corner of the world, and it's nicely shot in atmospheric documentary style black and white. Yet another quality film from the best film maker currently working in Britain.

    Fucking fuck! Why, Shane Meadows, why? This film was outstanding, it was on course for an easy 4.5 stars. I was loving it: brilliant use of music, great pace and a real energy/vibe to it. I mean, me enjoying a British black and white film set on a council estate about boxing. That never ever happens, I usually avoid all those aspects, but I gave this one a chance, I like Bob Hoskins and it looked interesting, and what do you do? You kill the ending and bring the whole film crashing back to misery land. Fuck you! I'm not saying every film has to end with sunbeams and rainbows over a chocolate landscape, but a film with this bleak an outset that was all about hope and strength NEEDED an upbeat ending. Moron! Idiot! Bastard!
