Post Exclusive: SnitchSeeker reviews Cherrybomb

As you know from our exclusive interview with Rupert Grint, we sent a representative to the premiere of his new film Cherrybomb at the Berlin Film Festival. Our review can now be read below, thanks to Jen who attended on our behalf!

As a whole, Cherrybomb was a wonderfully dramatic film about teen angst and the trials and complexities of friendship. The film showed how quickly friendships can be disrupted and how just one weekend can change lives forever.

One of the directors Glenn Leyburn has a background in graphic design, so the visual design of the movie was absolutely stunning. The use of color and contrast helped to emphasize the state of discord and the emotional roller coaster that is the life of characters Malachy, Luke and Michelle. The music of Cherrybomb fits so perfectly with the tense mood of the movie David Holmes has been nominated for the 6th annual Irish Film and Television Awards for the Original Score Category for his brilliant musical contributions to the film.

Kimberley Nixon played Michelle, the starved for attention troublemaking daughter of Dave (the owner of the Leisureplex where Malachy works). Michelle was a young girl acting out against her father. She was the teenage girl with two boys fighting over her (so nothing really new there), but the shocking reality of a father's secret sets her apart from other girls.

After seeing Cherrybomb you won't look at Rupert Grint and just see Ron Weasley. This film completely ripped out the image of Rupert Grint as Harry Potter's best friend, and changed into something fresh and exciting. Rupert had a complete makeover for the movie. He had a nice new hairstyle (The quiff) and a great Northern-Irish accent. With the cursing and the drug use, "Ron Weasley" just wasn't in the picture. This was Rupert Grint's first real adult role and he brought a lot of intensity to the screen.

Robert Sheehan played Luke in the movie. There was a great deal of emotional baggage when it came to Luke. Robert handled his extremely dysfunctional family problems with great passion. In every scene that the audience watched Luke's life unravel, it was clear that Robert was putting in as much energy and dedication as was possible.

Cherrybomb is definitely a film worth seeing if you're in the mood for great acting and wonderfully appealing visual and audio effects. Keep your eyes peeled for a trailer!

If we won't see him as Ronald Weasley then how will we see him. I never seen Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley exclusively I have always been able to separate Rupert from Ron. I see Rupert as a terrific actor who's potential in his craft is just beginning to be tap. It seems as though he takes every role given to him and make it a sucess. I am proud of Rupert.

Yeah, I dont mean any offence but I think that Rupert is not a good actor. Everytime when he's saying something he's doing odd things with his face just like Emma with her eyebrows. I love them of course but I dont know why people love their acting skills so much....Im not looking forward to see Cherrybomb. Even if he will pull his clothes off.
