Each week FILMCLUB will be bringing you two reviews – a new DVD release and one of the classics that feature on the charity’s 4,000 strong catalogue.

And so you know exactly whether you’ll like it or not, the reviews come from kids just like you!

Below you can read the review of the classic film On  the Waterfront by FILMCLUB member Daniel Murray aged 12 from Stillness Junior School in Brockley Rise, Forest Hill.

And if you fancy another review, then check out our full list of DVD reviews right here!

onthewaterfront4On the waterfront is a fantastic movie that takes you through a range of emotions from sad to happy, to a state of nervous anxiety  which gets you gripping the edge of your seat  – all the time wondering what’s  going to happen next….

This movie is about a man who works loading things into carts but is a sort of1954 gangster. But the top gangsters are getting out of control, a gripping story of who will win and who will lose ensues.

This movie is so realistic and touching that you feel like you can’t take your eyes off of the screen! I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Rating 4 out of 5 stars
