Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a comically inept and unfocused piece of filmmaking, with 'This Is England'-lite period detail attained by what looks like a bring-your-own-costume policy."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"It's a dreadful piece of writing, compounded by an array of shockingly poor performances."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Though predictable, the attention to period detail makes this a Brit-flick rather like its hero - an intelligent little scrapper."
‑ Chris Hicks, Total Film
"Below average British crime drama that's let down by a shockingly weak central performance, some poor direction, shoddy production design and a cop-out ending."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Overcomes its low budget suspenseful story, sympathetic leads and cracking '80s soundtrack."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
"A piece of violent geezer-porn."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"It left The Sneak wishing the cinema doorman had said his name wasn't on the list and he wasn't coming in to see Clubbed."
‑ , Sun Online
"Soon enough, Danny's up there with the skinhead, suggesting his own masculine ego is the priority, not his kids."
‑ Victor Olliver, Teletext
"It's surprisingly good: well written, nicely acted and beautifully scored."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"Director Neil Thompson's literally hardhitting tale of a turning worm who transforms himself from meek factory drone to strutting nightclub doorman doesn't cast a light on anything."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"The swaggering acting and profanity-rich dialogue, alas, make Neil Thompson's film feel little more than an excuse for Guy Ritchie-esque posturing."
‑ Neil Smith, thelondonpaper
