UK Reviews

"A really interesting way of re-inventing the crime drama - darkly comic - moments in it when I felt profoundly uneasy... " Mark Kermode - BBC Film 24

"Ben Wheatley single handedly salvages the British gangster flick" Time Out

"Highly entertaining. Very dry, very droll: Brighton Rock reworked in the style of The Royle Family." Philip French - The Observer

"Shallow Grave as if it's written by Ricky Gervais - A real and unexpected treat" Cosmo Landesman - Sunday Times

"Hilarious & shocking" Tim Robey - The Daily Telegraph

"Inventive, disarming...remarkably refreshing - The kind of British film making that must be supported" Den Of Geek

"Down Terrace is without doubt the highlight of this summer’s box office. Simply Superb" Islington Tribune

Drew McWeeny's Hit Fix Review

"Down Terrace" is a very small film, intimate, and yet it has an ending that feels positively cataclysmic. It's a very strong directorial effort for Wheatley, primarily known for British TV comedy before now, and it has absolutely put him and Robin Hill on my radar for whatever they do in the future. When Magnet releases it later this year, pay attention. It's something else.
