Clubbed- Pleasantly Surprised
5 February 2009 | by kayleighsheldonSee all my reviews

I rather enjoyed this film, admittedly i only watched it to see Scot Williams, who i am on a one woman quest to marry one day. But i thought it was thoroughly entertaining. Rob, Louis and Danny were very likable and believable characters- the ending made my cry!! And i have always loved the brilliant Maxine peake!! This film is perhaps a good starting point for anyone wanting edgier British cinema without too much initial violence, as some of guy Ritchie's stuff etc can be over the top and unnecessarily nasty. Milesssssssssss better than that God-awful scouse film 'the crew' which was released almost simultaneously, although Scot Williams makes that worthwhile too... Give Clubbed a go.. its surprisingly good x
