Wonderful and worthy of the acclaim - Slumdog Millionaire review by Jawbreaker

Wrongly promoted as a feel good film, Slumdog Millionaire is a roller coaster of emotions ending in euphoria. It does set out with scenes of torture but these soon give way to wonderfully vibrant locations and unique events, which provide Jamal with those answers he’ll come to rely on later in life. While the ending is obvious, the actual thrill is the experience following Jamal and his brother, as they grow up on the streets, show an Alan Sugar style business sense, and mature differently. A toilet scene that rivals Trainspotting will have you laughing, whilst the call centre location will be familiar to most of us.

A cast of relative unknowns under the directorship of Danny Boyle produces one of the most memorable films of recent times. They even avoid the clichéd Bollywood dancing until the end credits. There really isn’t a chink in the colourful armour of Slumdog Millionaire, as everything delivers. The cinematography captures the essence of India, the soundtrack is modern yet influenced by the region and the script holds your attention throughout. Rental is a must!

Didn't live up to expectations - Slumdog Millionaire review by Pete W

I'm afraid this didn't work for me. It took a very superficial approach to some serious issues such as child mutilation and exploitation. I couldn't see any comedic element to the film or any feel-good factor. In fact, I found the whole piece rather depressing.
