Slaughterhouse Rulez

The film didn’t hang around in my local cinema for long so I never got round to seeing it but made a mental note to check it out when it turned up to watch at home.  It’s a shame really because although it has no way the budget of a Hollywood blockbuster, a fair amount of money has been spent and it’s all up there on the screen.

Strange things are afoot at a public school, there has been a suicide and there is fracking going on locally.  All hell (literally) breaks loose and bunch of pupils have to basically save the day.

You’d think it was some sort of Harry Potter’esque escapade and to a point it has qualities which would attract fans of that particular film series.  It is however definitely aimed at a slightly older age group due the gore and profanity flung around.  It’s very British and lots of fun but certainly no way a game changer.  It is though, a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours with a great cast featuring some talented kids including Sex Education’s Asa Butterfield, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Michael Sheen and very big A list Hollywood actress cropping up in a small role.
