Unfortunately the grit of the original two movies is well lost in thisepisode. The main two gangsters/bad men are completely unbelievablecharacters. One is like a runty cousin of Danny dyer (some Essexwarrior who couldn't scare a granny), and the other 'hugs' comes acrossas a mincing Turkish footballer, who's acting is very wooden. Theacting in general (apart from Noel's) is farcical, along with theAmericanised story line , which takes things too far from potentialreality. Even Curtis, who was pretty demonic in the second film comesacross as a theatrical comedy villain. If you are going to attempt tocast in high level gangsters who run large grossing internationalbusiness's, then please, make the characters believable. Some orangeEssex boy in top shop garms just doesn't cut it. The great thing aboutthe first two films was that they were believable to a certain extent,with the plots mirroring how life can be for large swathes of societyin urban environments. For some reason Clarke took this one way beyondthose parameters, and failed miserably. If parenthood is to happen asthe 4th and final part, then please take it back to the originalflavour. There is so much good new music and Yoot's (genuine rude boyswho hang with well known grime artists) to ensure Clarke could create arealistic and believable film. Unfortunately, this film waters down thefirst two and comes across as a way to milk the good will built up.

Sam Peel (Noel Clarke) has settled down with girlfriend Kayla (ShanikaWarren-Markland) and two children, and has put his unsavoury pastbehind him. But he is thrust back into it when his younger brotherRoyston (Daniel Anthony) is gunned down while performing at a liveshow. Flash new crook Daley (Jason Maza) wants him to work for him, andhas joined forces with Sam's old enemy Uncle Curtis (Cornell John) whohas his own agenda. Sam tries to stay on the straight and narrow, untilan horrific act plunges him back into the underworld he'd tried so hardto escape.
Noel Clarke obviously felt, eight years after the last instalmentAdulthood, that the series needed to be rounded off a little more thanit already was, and so we have this, we are assured, the final part.Some backstage politics, shall we say, have clearly played their handshere, and so we see the Moony character missing altogether, and Sammysteriously settled down with his girlfriend from the last film?!?,and of course Adam Deacon's Jay completely absent following the welldocumented real life spat that spewed up between him and Clarke.Personally, I didn't miss his hyper street kid antics this time round.
While it still packs a powerful emotional punch or two, somehow theraw, gritty, uncompromising nature that characterised the first twofilms just isn't as evident here. Those films (the first oneespecially) were from the mind of a young man who had grown up in thisunfortunate world, and who gained acclaim by recklessly writing downand screening all the types of stuff he'd seen, and as a result made afilm that was 'as potent as a shot of vodka in the morning' as onetabloid review memorably put it. With such a large space of timebetween this and the last film, the cast (those still in it) and thematerial with them feel like they've grown up a bit, and this time itall seems to be played more for laughs, even during intense, dramaticscenes, especially from Arnold Oceang's Henry.
That aside, the story all feels cobbled together without the strongestnarrative flow and there's an air of predictability about a lot of itthat doesn't go unnoticed. It's still worth seeing, though, a grown up,more seasoned ending that those from this generation will feel they'veshared the journey with. ***
Brotherhood is the third in the series of Noel Clarke films set inLondon and featuring Sam Peel . Sam has grown up and is a differentperson to the one we saw in Kidulthood but trouble still seems tofollow him in the form of an enemy who has come to seek revenge. What Ilike about these films is they feel very real. Although Brotherhood ismore polished than the two previous films it still has that Independentvibe about it. None of the people on show are particularly likablewhich makes it quite hard to care what happens to them and the languageis uncomfortable to hear at times . The main villain's racism seemsover the top and unnecessary and kind of spoils what is an interestingfilm.
