| Much better than the rating gives credit
I've just finished watching this film, and it greatly surpassed my expectations that previous reviews/ratings had given.

The film is essentially about a group of mates who decide to host a warehouse rave in the early 90's, realise that they made easy money from partying so continue with it. For a while all goes well until eventually it all gets a bit much for them as fights over drug dealing begin to escalate, with the stress of the situation eventually tearing the characters apart.

All in all this film is entertaining to watch, and if you have knowledge of the scene you'll easily be reminded of some of the best times of your life. As well as entertaining some of the characters were fantastic, I won't go into detail, but you really can't help but hate the antagonist, especially as we've all had experiences with people like that, thinking they're better than other people and forgetting what made the party great in the first place.

This film isn't perfect, but definitely worth watching if you enjoyed Human Traffic, although it is noticeably darker
