Just finished researching all of the first series. Funny enough soon as I started watching it I remembered it well. Still get filled with anger when the poor kids dog got killed lol . Know its just a movie but I'd be doing easy jail time if was my dog.

 

Anyway another thing I found funny is them mentioning sending the younger country. It's been going on years but suddenly its an epidemic and major news. Wonder why its suddenly getting more attention . No doubt more are getting involved but I think the media partly fuel that. Reporting it and having kids read about what's being earned. Rather than focusing more on the shit they have to go through and perhaps trying to build more empathy for addicts. So that we have a nation of people who care more for each other.

 

YouTube and mainly rap music also plays a part. Even artists who aren't big are seen as celebs on road. Not blaming music as such but in a way it  does normalize the shit going on. Raps changed big time even in just the years since top boy. From rapping about life being a struggle to every cunt being a dealer and talking how they push keys. Even before when rappers rapped about them dealing it wasn't in such a bragging manor. In some ways I think that's those who've not had shit also being inspired. This time by social media and celebs and "the good life". Need a lot more help to push young people on the right path and keep them there imo.

 

Anyway just something that came to mind watching it.

I thought the Netflix reboot was as  good a sequel as you are likely to get. Ronan Bennet seems to have retained creative control. The language is still "authentic" (to the extent that Americans and many Brits will need subtitles). It lacks the sense of immediacy of the originals and it's overlong. By the end I really didn't care what happened to whom - it doesn't really matter, it just goes on and on. Maybe that is the point.

It's not as good as the first 2, I feel it was rushed and there isn't much happening it's pretty much just the same shit

Was worth a watch but overall disappointed

Although I would watch season 4 if it came out tomorrow. 

There are some more UK Crime short films on YouTube that are worth a watch, it's nice to watch something relatable rather than most of the crime programmes in USA

Top Boy is almost like a London version of HBOs "The Wire"
