Another good film by Noel Clarke. I watched Kidulthood one week before Adulthood and I have to say I preferred Kidulthood. This sequel seems to lack the energy and liveliness of Kidulthood. Oddly, Kidulthood seemed more 'adult' than this one, too.
The villain of Kidulthood is portrayed as the 'good guy' in Adulthood. A bold decision by Noel Clarke, and I'm not sure it quite pays off. I couldn't allow myself to root for him in this. It was uncomfortable viewing - in a good way, some might say.
This film does a great job of portraying the pains of growing up, the awkwardness of drifting apart from your school mates, and the mental and physical scars that violence leaves behind.
Definitely worth seeing after Kidulthood, but the tone is different and its not as much fun to watch. Some very good scenes though.
