Shank: Teenage gang member Cal, hides his sexuality from the his fellow happy slapping gang members despite their often futile and violent dislike of anyone that isn't the same as them be they unsuspecting shoppers, foreign students, gays etc. Hooking up with a random stranger (Scott), Cal is unaware that this chance meeting will eventually provide him with choices and routes of escape from the tedium of his unambitious and depraved life. When his world collides with Olivier, a student he rescues from a pointless beating, he encounters a lifestyle that presents as many new experiences as it does obstacles.

It was very well done, very good acting, I liked their young bodies and would love to do that, but could never see myself with a man in life. I would love to find a woman and true love.

Great movie, I really enjoyed it. Was a sad movie and it made me very angry also, not mad at the gay situation, but upset at how some people are so very prejudice to whatever is different!! Love comes in all shapes and forms and in many different situations that may not be the norm. Keep that in mind an you too will enjoy this movie. Great acting, great plot/storyline. 9/10

I thought it was a pretty good movie. Although the acting felt a little bit fake I thought the story was fairly good, though like most love stories, it was pretty cliche. 3.5/5

This was a really good movie! My tears were running. Good acting, the expressions really came over, the feelings, it really showed how hard it can be. I give this movie an 8.

It's a really good movie, I think the most emotionally enduring and confusing part is towards the end when things start coming out that will make you think, "what the hell is going on?" a bit to much to spill out in one part if you ask me(maybe they should have spread it through out the movie rather then chunk it together at the end). But none the less a good movie, a watch. 4.5/5

How intense is the love of a person? How deep are the trials before you will realize that thats who you are? How far can you accept ones person's personality. If you love a person no matter what it takes, will you fight for it? These are some of the questions you will find convincing as you watch this film. It is a fine film. Its craft is exceptional and well directed. Worth seeing. Congratulations to the actors and actresses who have done tremendous portrayal to fit the characters of the story.

Wow, this was such a good film. I'm glad I got to finally watch it... very brutal scenes but it kept a storyline that really intrigued me. I really thought Jonno was into Cal at first too, so I wasn't surprised with his actions to Cal in the ending. Sad but a happy ending.
