  • Too many moments come off as clichéd or contrived.

  • The soundtrack is better than the movie.

    Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's pungently acted by a cast of unknowns, and the wars of words are thrilling and often eye-wateringly offensive.

  • 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.

  • Formulaic troubled-kid-saved-by-rap drama, made winning by its cast and its novel British (Southend) setting.

    Jun 29, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A vibrant and febrile glimpse into a world where words are the weapon of choice.
