London Road documents the events of 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. When a local resident was charged and then convicted of the murders, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the epicentre of this tragedy.

London Road online movie review - It's all kicking off........ummmmm....

If you've already seen this film, or rather, experimental remake of the musical, you will understand the summary line.....

The film documents the events of 2006, when the town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.

The residents of the titular Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb- crawling on their street.

When a local resident was charged and then convicted of the murders, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the centre of this tragedy......

Many have said that this film is a sick and twisted film, glamorising and turning murders into a musical. I say, see the film again, and you will see that no murders, no victims, or the murderer, are depicted in the film.

The film isn't about murder or murdering (some of singing is murderous on the ears though), it's about being part of a community, and coming together as said community at a time of distress, stress, and fear, and how different members deal with the situation.

I couldn't possibly comment on the musical, as I haven't seen it, but the cinema isn't the best medium for the story if the community, and at times it feels like a musical version of those creature comfort adverts merged with that Peter Sutcliffe musical skit Chris Morris did on Brasseye.

The cast are fine. Olivia Coleman is always fantastic to watch in anything, and the original cast of the musical are okay, but they look and feel uncomfortable not performing in front of an audience. And Tom Hardy pops up as a sinister sounding taxi driver AKA a red herring.

It's a shame that it's not as rewarding as it's intending to be, but that's the gamble when your making experimental cinema. It's definitely worth seeing, you may find it to be one of the best musicals ever made. But at times the film kept sending me back to Burtons Sweeney Todd.......which in my opinion is the best musical ever made.

But it never glamorises murder, so the people who say this is sick and twisted are wrong, and need to look further into a film when watching it. Think outside the box......
