Embarrassing

I had high hopes for this film. British films tend to have depth to them and I like Noel Clarke. However, this was almost embarrassing to watch. The writing is on par with those terrible Olsen movies and the plot isn't much better. The film seemingly was just written to string together various scenes of the girls in their underwear, sex scenes and lesbian kissing. The girls are beautiful and the cinematography is cool but the actual film is crap. Noel Clarke is fun to watch as an actor, but his writing leaves a lot to be desired. It really is like something the Disney channel would write just littered with swear words. Its a shame. I really did want to like this film but I was left so disappointed.

Shocking

4.3.2.1 seems to think it's a hip, fresh, non-linear Brit crime thriller, a work of originality and verve. After all, the man behind it is Noel Clarke, who in KIDULTHOOD and ADULTHOOD made a pair of decent and modern urban dramas. Sadly, everything about this movie is a huge mistake, and it ends up as an extraordinarily superficial copy of Tarantino's masterwork PULP FICTION.

The major problems with this film are the story and script, which both go nowhere. The "leads" are a group of dim, twentysomething girls living in London, their stories told individually and linking up at various points. Sexual exploitation, robbery, lesbianism and family drama are some of the topics covered, but they're all handled in the most mundane and unengaging way imaginable.

It doesn't help that the characters are puerile, obsessed with the shallow pursuit of pleasure and thus giving the viewer no reason to get behind them. There's an unwelcome whiff of exploitation to the proceedings with one character (Shanika Warren-Markland) forced to spend the majority of her screen time in her underwear.

The performances are terrible, particularly from the ultra-grating Emma Roberts (an actress who only exists thanks to nepotism) and the aforementioned Warren-Markland, although CAMELOT's Tamsin Egerton isn't much better. The format is peppered with more seasoned actors like Sean Pertwee and Kevin Smith, but they also ring hollow thanks to the moronic dialogue they're handed out. 4.3.2.1 truly is a stupid and offensively crass piece of movie-making.

Go for the conflict diamonds

Actor, writer and director Noel Clarke decided he wanted to write female characters and make the film with fours interlinked perspectives. hence 4.3.2.1.

It is a Tarantino attempt to make a fast paced film with a twist of Modern French cinema but it misfires.

The film starts promising enough with Shannon's story but loses focus with Cassandra's story where we suddenly end up in New York and Kevin Smith on the plane journey there.

The film concludes with Joanne's story where the interlinked events come together but it does rely on some strange coincidences.

The four female leads inject a lot of vibrancy and spirit but there are just too many unsympathetic side characters which leaves you uninvolved with only Alexander Siddig playing the Brazilian dad being the most warm hearted in his brief appearance.

As always with other Clarke films there are a lot of Doctor Who links: We have Sean Pertwee (son of Jon Pertwee.) Emma Roberts (daughter of Eric Roberts who played the Master.) Kate Magowan (husband John Simm also played the Master.) Camille Coduri and Nicholas Briggs make guest appearances who were regulars during Clarke's stint in Doctor Who.
