Uninteresting - Hallam Foe review by Pete W

Spoiler Alert

Jamie Bell is wasted in this peculiar film as a deeply disturbed young man with murderous and voyeuristic tendancies. Weak storyline which goes nowhere. I persevered to the end of the film but got close to giving up on it and switching off a couple of times.

Growing pains - Hallam Foe review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert

I found this quite enjoyable- Jamie Bell is in fine spiky form as the bereaved “hero” who is at war with the world after the death of his mother. His Hallam seems to carry the world on his shoulders, and his twisted posture and feisty attitude hint at his inner torment- quite a surprise, then, that he manages to pull off trysts with not one but two glamorous women (one admittedly a bit close to home!). Despite the unlikelihood of this, though, it’s a fresh and bracing addition to the anguished-teen-learning-about-life genre, and the rooftops of Edinburgh make a great setting for Hallam’s adventures.

Unusual story - Hallam Foe review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Jamie Bell with a peculiar Scottish accent playing a disturbed teenager who is convinced his mother was killed by the stepmother, so he retreats to his own nest away from the family becoming a voyeur. When he moves to Edinburgh this way of living continues until he meets someone who looks like his death mother. Good acting and another Scottish movie with strong language, which seems to be too strong for the censors in London.
