As a shot rings out
into the night sky behind a church in Brixton, we are left to ponder which
of five individuals, one a bouncer, one a party organiser, one a heavy, one
a drug dealer and one a banker, will be wasted. Twelve hours earlier we see
how they came to be in this predicament and how this day will be monumental
to them all.
From the makes of
the mildly amusing Human Traffic comes what can only be described at a British
attempt at a Robert Altman/P. T. Anderson movie, a character driven piece
with interweaving plotlines. The problem is they fail dismally. The movie
is just so dull, it is the first movie I've really wanted to walk out of and
I've seen some real crap and never even considered that. There is not one
character that you can even connect with or one whom you can feel sorry for.
Painting London as a place that no one should ever visit, never mind live
in, this is just another British movie that relies on crime and drugs for
it's major plot lines and then does absolutely nothing new with them.
No excitement, no
decent dialogue, no character development, nothing. This is just a really
dull, painful movie.
