The Anarchist Cookbook Review

Image for The Anarchist Cookbook

A group of brainless but nubile teens attempt to subvert the system from within by, ah, generally being nice to each other whilst declaring that all world-wide corporations are deeply horrid.

★★★★

They must be anarchists, they've got skateboards.

Attempting to fight politics with poses - "Anarchy is like heroin chic without the drugs" - and armed with a woefully loose grip on realpolitik - "We brought presidents and heads of state to their knees when we rioted in Seattle '99" - a group of brainless but nubile teens attempt to subvert the system from within by, ah, generally being nice to each other whilst declaring that all world-wide corporations are deeply horrid.

A bomber-jacket-clad bovver boy (Ryan Bruno) arrives late to spice up things a bit, but even the fight scenes aren't that exciting. There's a good film waiting to be made on this subject. This isn't it.
