Plastic Review


Weak

Lazy filmmaking undermines this sparky caper thriller, from paper-thin characters and convenient plot points to limp direction and corny editing. This is a real shame, because the bright rising-star cast brings real energy to the weak material. So audiences who can switch off their brains might have some fun watching this fast-paced romp. But everyone else should be wary.

It opens in Britain, where economics student Sam (Ed Speleers) is running an elaborate credit card scam with classmates Fordy, Yatesey and Rafa (Will Poulter, Alfie Allen and Sebastian De Souza). But when local gangster Marcel (Thomas Kretchmann) discovers their operation, he demands a £2m payoff to let them go. So Sam secretly manipulates his new girlfriend Frankie (Emma Rigby), who happens to work for a credit security firm, into getting them the key information they can use to stage a series of high-stakes cons in Miami. And when this plan falls apart, they decide to launch an elaborate sting to rob £20m of diamonds and set themselves up for life.

The premise isn't bad, but the script is packed with coincidental things that make it utterly impossible to believe. Frankie's job is one of these, as is the fact that Rafa looks just like the Prince of Brunei. And of course, since the plot needs some third-act suspense, Yatesey suddenly turns out to be a careless idiot. None of these things make any sense, leaving everything about the film feeling gratuitous, including the sunshiny beauty of the Miami Beach setting and the presence of inexpressive actress Rigby. Plastic, indeed.

Sam and Fordy are young students who think of themselves as entrepreneurs in the business of credit card fraud. They and their friends are making a lot of money already, but it's a stressful business - they introduce glamorous new recruit Frankie into the group; a data processor for a credit card company who could prove to have the inside knowledge needed to make their money making schemes a hell of a lot simpler. They go oversees to scam some of the world's biggest billionaires, but it isn't long before one 'victim' catches up with them. An infamous gangster named Marcel finds them and threatens to kill them if they do not pay him a debt of $2 million in two weeks. Their lives now hanging in the balance, the group need to a license to print money if they want to make it - unless they can pull of a major jewel heist between them. However, with a potential fortune to be made, will their greed overcome their friendships?

'Plastic' is a crime drama based on a remarkable true story. It has been directed by Julian Gilbey ('A Lonely Place to Die', 'Rise of the Footsoldier') who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Will Gilbey ('Doghouse', 'Just for the Record') and Chris Howard (producer of 'Get Lucky'). It is scheduled for UK release on May 2nd 2014.

Anuvahood Review


OK
Essentially a scruffy British stoner comedy, this colourful romp certainly manages to create a lively atmosphere. But the characters' non-stop chatter, much of which is shouted at top volume, wears us out within the first five minutes.

Kenneth (Deacon) has changed his name to K to seem more street-smart on his rough council estate. His parents (Robson and Benson) think he needs to take more responsibility in the family, so he decides to help with their money problems. Although quitting his job isn't the smartest move. Then he hatches a plan to sell drugs to the neighbourhood with the help of his dopey pals (Zonzolo, Oyeniran and Vu) and a visiting foreign student (Barbieri), but this puts him on a collision course with the estate's self-proclaimed kingpin Tyrone (Campbell).
