Movie Reviews

Feeding the rush to steal stuff.
Hogarth Hughes | Rockwell, ME | 10/26/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Here's the plot- some cool criminals in a not too distant future industrial London steal cars, only to drive them into posh shopping malls to loot what they can before hearing police sirens, basically for the rush- wicked. This debut from PAUL ANDERSON (EVENT HORIZON) is a nifty little film that manages to exite in it's short running time. Gritty and well acted by some up and comming English talent (SEAN PERTWEE is excellent as usual as a tough scumbag), this flick has some slick production for an indie. A movie that looks good, moves with purpose, and draws the viewer into a world of grime and crime is always worth it."
British cult cinema at its best
Xlaire Lindemann | Bellingham, WA USA | 10/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Shopping was a cult hit throughout Britain several decades ago and should be treated as such. While I love this film, it is not for everyone. The action and plot line are not what you would expect, should you be looking for some English version of Gone in 60 Seconds. However, those of you who appreciate artsy British independent cinema (as well as some scenes with young Sean Bean, Jason Isaacs, and Sean Pertwee...worth drooling over) will really enjoy this film."
Martha A. Hough | Oregon | 10/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was an amazing piece of cinema. Soundtrack, acting, and cinematography was wonderful. It is a bit dated now, but otherwise well done. It never tries to justify what these people do and how they live, but merely make us understand why they do it, and maybe have some sympathy as well. They treat life like ride and they have to face the consequences: it shows we eventually have to take responsibility for our actions, no matter how fast we run (or drive) away from them.
Sean Pertwee's performance as a drug-addicted, crime tycoon was especially good. He had a constant flow of energy just under the surface, making him seem unpredictable and dangerous, which he is."
This version is cut up!
T. Smith | Ontario, Canada | 12/13/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is actually the edited version of Shopping. I taped an uncut version off of a network here in Canada called Show Case that runs unknown smaller films like this. I also own this DVD and thats how I know this DVD is edited. My taped movies run time is about 1 hour and 42 minutes (102 min). This DVD is only 89 minutes. The uncut version is a bit better as a couple of key scenes were left out of this DVD."
