Not really a review, but...
25 November 2015 | by icicle-98365See all my reviews

This is not really a review, but more a question to the other two reviewers...You do know this "movie" is based on real life events? This actually happened? The reason for it was exactly to show the gang culture in London and also to show how this boy, who was trying to turn his life around and move away from gangs, was set up in a "honeytrap" by a young female and that ultimately led to his death. The reason for the narrative is to speak to people about his life and what was going on at the time.

This film really touched me. With all the violence, gang culture and knife crime, more (much more) needs to be done for and with the young people of today's society to help them see that it's not the way to go.
