Dare bests truth at each turn in Cherrybomb, a zippy if over-schematic teen pic from tyro helmers Lisa Barros D'Sa and Glenn Leyburn.

Cherrybomb is an unaffected, if disposable, tribute to youthful misadventure.

Ben Rawson-Jones
Digital Spy

A trio of captivating performances from the young leads and a mesmerising soundtrack cannot drag Cherrybomb out of the creative mire.

A valiant effort, but a little too yoof by numbers to be taken seriously.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

This reasonably polished slice of Skins-style youthsploitation makes such a fake and undangerous lurch into pills-and-vandalism melodrama.

News of the World

The story unfolds like a plastic picnic table, with a string of not-very-exciting events standing in for a plot.

Daily Mirror (UK)

While it never quite manages to shake off the E4 vibe, it's good to see Grint stretching his wings.

Liz Beardsworth
Empire Magazine

Strong turns from Grint and Sheehan, and a punchy storyline elevate this from TV drama to something powerfully cinematic.

Directors Lisa Barros D'Sa and Glenn Leyburn aim for the sexually charged edginess of television's Skins, but fall back on glib outrage with little time spent examining what makes their characters tick.
