  • Too many moments come off as clichéd or contrived.

  • It's about a young white rapper who has issues with his mother, and naturally it may owe something to Curtis Hanson's 8 Mile from 2003, starring Eminem, but I enjoyed this more.

  • A vibrant and febrile glimpse into a world where words are the weapon of choice.

  • It's energetic and eager to please, and it certainly doesn't insult its viewers' literacy: the rap battles are cleverly written.

  • Vs. may set its stall as the British 8 Mile, with its hard-done-by protagonist transmuting his rage into lyrics, but it goes its own way and is refreshingly progressive when it comes to gender and sexuality.

  • Lilly deftly handles a cliched story - there are parallels with everything from Eminem in 8 Mile to boxing drama Creed - giving it a distinctive, persuasive edginess.
