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.

Kidulthood was a dark, exciting, and insightful look into the Londonyouth culture. Adulthood expertly built on that and showed thestruggles of those trying to escape the endless cycle of violence thatgrips the streets. Both combined danger, humour and awesome urbansoundtracks to depict perfectly the modern gang scene- but mostimportantly- did so in a BELIEVABLE manner. Brotherhood did not reachthose standards in any way. The cast failed to live up to theperformances of the original movies. The plot seemed very far fetched,and often needs saving by the quite random jokes involving "Henry"(from Adulthood). Instead of the sinister threats posed by Sam Peel inthe original, or Jay in the sequel, the audience are treated to anabsolutely absurd duo of Daley & Hugz, who just weren't menacing enoughin comparison. The involvement of Stormzy (along with his relativelypolite well spoken posse) don't really accomplish anything in the movieand appear to be there just to balance out the pointless appearance ofCurtis, still reeling from his Nephew's murder 20 odd years on. All inall, Anuvahood was probably more believable than this, I would give ita miss and watch reruns of Channel 4's excellent Top Boy instead.
There is no doubt that Noel Clarke is a talented filmmaker, he acts,writes and directs this finale to the Hood story. He also gives unknownacts who can't afford to go to drama school a chance and has uncoveredsome real talent, His main focus is on the inner city working classyouth culture where every day is a struggle to survive. Clarke does notsugar coat the grim life of many inner city issues and is not scared toaddress them in his movies. But it not totally gritty there is room forhope and redemption. Not the best of the three Hood movies, it is hardhitting, violent and engrossing but ultimately a rewarding watch. Fullmarks to Noel Clarke who is one of Britain's most talented filmmakersand his bravery in tackling tough social issues head on.
