The "Meh Stuff": The story: Short you can tell that this is a superhero-movie and a troubled- teen- high school-flick. A lot of the story works and are works getting invested in, like the parts of Lucys (Maise Wiliams) parts when she tries to comprehend with her rape right from the start of the movie and all the scenes when the people around the gang who are the for guilty of Lucys Rape is falling apart. But overall it feels like this Movie is wanna be a "Kick-ass" but without all the jokes and with more underdeveloped relationships and dialogue.
The worst stuff: Bill Milner: The biggest this flick has is it's
Protagonist Tom(Bill Milner). He doesn't feel investigated in his roll, all his lines feels cringe and awkward and he doesn't play he's part so good. If he watches his enemy's fall apart or fighting with his very lovely Grandma it just feels like his not there.
I also feel the need too mention the in many case bad and poorly written dialogue this movie has. All the way through it feels pushed, hasted through and they would have taken one last look at it. The premise of the film was brilliant. I liked the idea, the motivation, the characters. But when it came to the resolution, it all fizzled. It's the classic "boy protects girl from bad guy", but when push comes to shove, all good characters get really wimpy. Perhaps it's a British thing, I don't know.
There were also some weird situations in which one solution could have solved several problems, but they were used only for one. Several things that got the henchman, for example, were never used on the final boss.
Bottom line: it was a great premise that got suffocated by clich辿s, even while attempting to be original. I would call that a failure. iBoy
