a good way to kill some time

Some Dogs Bite Stars Aaron Taylor Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Michelle Asante this movie is about three brothers trying to find they're father after they're mother dies but Thomas Sangster's character is a somewhat fugitive after technically stealing the third brother who is a baby. the movie was a pretty enjoyable yet pretty quiet time with a easily flowing combination of family understanding but also family alone time that's kind of the movie a blah blah blah yet blah blah blah kind of movie it's still likable. Thomas Brodie-Sangster is a very talented actor and his character Casey is simple amusing caring and sympathetic actually there are a lot of sympathetic things in this movie but any way back to Casey. I really do think he's capable of surviving by himself but he so determined to have a family he'll hide in the middle of nowhere just to hang out with his baby brother and you feel for his character you want him to stay with his brothers no matter what they go through you just want Casey to be happy with where he is and who will be there for him he's kind of like Forrest Gump but more head in the clouds. now his brother H um you don't grow to hate the character because by the end he want's to stay together like Casey and he sorry for not being there but he kind of strict and uninterested in everything but still he's a alright character but yeah he was kind of mean to Casey. the movie was decent Casey was cool but some scenes just dragged on a little bit but this movie is still something to watch it's very interesting and like I said sympathetic but remember you might just might shed a tear or two.

Moving and true to life!

From VARIETY REVIEWS "When the mother of three boys (all from different fathers) dies, her middle son, pubescent Casey (up-and-coming young thesp Thomas Brodie Sangster), kidnaps his younger brother, 10-month-old Severino (played by Cory Smith, Kian Smith and Lewis Ryan Dickinson), from care. Casey then compels his older sib, H (Aaron Taylor), to help them run away to Scotland to find Casey's long-gone dad. Budding criminal H would rather not go but has little choice, as Casey has stolen some money from him and sent it ahead to a post office box in Inverness.

En route, they have various scrapes and hook up with two similarly adrift, emotionally neglected girls, mouthy Venetia (Michelle Asante, especially good) and more stable Seema (Mandeep Dhillon), and romantic feelings blossom between H and Venetia. The kids find shelter in an abandoned rural cottage H heard about from soldier Lenny (Aymen Hamdouchi), who's terribly excited about becoming a dad for the first time, therefore spelling disaster for him" I loved this film and was moved to tears by the storyline. It could have been more hard hitting but that would have meant that many of the young audience who its aimed at wouldn't have been able to watch it. Beautifully acted especially by Michelle Asante and Thomas Sangster. Marc Munden is a wonderful director also. I hope it gets worldwide release

Metro Review - Some Dogs Bite leaves teethmarks in the flesh

How many times have you reached the end of a drama and wished it hadn't turned out quite the way it did? If only your hand had been on the steering wheel and you could have stopped the hero from drowning, or called the fire brigade in time to stop the grand mansion burning down. Some Dogs Bite (BBC3) is a drama that offers that option. You get the chance to go online and twist the outcome by allowing its central character, the taciturn H, to explore variations on his fate. It opens up a roundabout of possibilities, the turning you take deciding the fate of H and his two brothers, teenager Casey and baby Severino. I'm wary of interactive drama. Too often it's simply used as a cop-out by writers and directors who can't quite make up their minds, like a dance track where endless remixes obscure the quality of the original. But Some Dogs Bite sidesteps those concerns, driven by a genuine desire to open up the options to characters who, to put it mildly, have had a rough ride. H, Casey and Severino are orphans, half-brothers born to the same mother and three different fathers. Their mother is dead, the fathers are absent and they face life on the run when Casey snatches Severino from care. On these lost souls director Marc Munden and writer Lin Coghlan hang a haunting portrait of fractured lives on the fringes of society that neither romanticises nor judges its subject. Boasting impressive performances from Aaron Taylor as the struggling H and Thomas Sangster as the other-worldly Casey, Some Dogs Bite does bite. It makes you want to explore the machinations of social services as you get inescapably involved with the different lives the boys could have had, as opposed to the fate doled out by the drama on screen. Some Dogs Bite worked fine as a stand-alone film, a silent and occasionally shocking road movie about boys on a collision course with a dead end. But getting the chance to intervene in their fate, to not just turn a blind eye, meant this moving story's teeth marks lingered in the flesh long after the credits rolled.
