| Aye Boy!
This is quite a cleverly executed sci-fi story about a young man (Ben Milner) who discovers his friend (Maisie Williams) being assaulted by a gang of hoodlums - he tries to escape and is shot. When he awakens in hospital he discovers that somehow he has become able to tap into almost every electrical network - artificial and/or neural and so sets about trying to avenge the assaults on himself and his pal. Miranda Richardson and Rory Kinnear appear, sparingly, as his nan and his nemesis respectively and both youngsters give engaging, if a little one-dimensional performances. Don't expect a big-budget, SFX laden effort; this is science fiction on an East London housing estate that offers some interesting social commentary on community attitudes and dependencies amidst the fantasy - with some quite innovative use of visual effects. Worth a watch.
