Critic Consensus: Hampered by pretension and undermined by unlikable characters, London proves that the novelty of seeing actors play against type isn't enough to rescue a deeply flawed film.

Critic Reviews for London
London's pretensions far outstrip its dorm-level contemplation of life's big issues.
You should avoid it like a bad case of whooping cough.
It's not so interesting to watch people on cocaine babble back and forth at each other.
'You are so annoying!' our hero screams in the heroine's face, halfway through London. 'You are 10 times more annoying than me!' our heroine quickly answers. They're both right.
Audience Reviews for London
As the synopsis shows London is a drug laden adventure which centres in a New York Loft where a young man is trying to win back his girlfriend. at first i thought. 'another cheesy movie'. i don't know what made me watch it but when i was finished i was absolutely GOBSMACKED!. 'London' is such an original and most importantly a very simple movie which is directed to its utmost perfection. Bateman (Jason Statham) is absolutely flawless in this movie as is Syd (Chris Evans). You begin to understand their characters straight away as both actors bring them to life wonderfully... i don't want to spoil the rest for you so ill finish on this note.. 'its a must see' ......
A lot smarter and realistic than you might expect. It has a really well driven plot and none of the characters are corny or over-the-top like many other post-teen dramas. It shows you how utterly pointless most arguments are, but that there is always a chance for redemption. Chris Evans and Jason Statham are the perfect match together, telling each other life lessons and handing out philosophy. The look, content and message is great, nailing the trust fund baby lifestyle perfectly and not just doing a cop out with numerous party scenes and sex.
It's sensational entertainment. Riveting, sexy, electrifying and wildly funny. A cool soundtrack. Chris Evans is electric. Jason Statham is brilliant. They deliver terrific chemistry with their pure powerhouse perfromances. This is the type of film that puts you in these characters shoes and makes you feel what their feeling. Well writen and directed. Evans hits you like you wouldnt belive. Statham is an absolute surprise. These two actors give unforgettable performances that show their stellar star capability. A fantastic movie.
