When life loses its purpose, only violence can have meaning.
In a small English town, three teenage boys are drawn into a world of temptation, violence and destruction. Bored, troubled, excluded and unable to accept or even to recognise moral boundaries, they move inexorably towards a shocking act that will horrify their sleepy community and expose its deepest, hidden fears.
Brutal, explosive and uncompromising, The Great Ecstasy Of Robert Carmichael is a devastating account of the depths to which people can sink and features an outstanding performance from Danny Dyer at his most viscious, malevolent and ferocious best.

When you finish watching a Zombie movie, you can leave it behind at the cinema. Zombies live in a different world - a parallel universe. How can you be sure you'll never meet Robert Carmichael? This is a deeply disturbing movie, within which some appalling acts take place - but, I'd bet this is probably quite close to the truth, if your subject matter is bored, angry, socially excluded teenage boys from small towns. Reality is scarier than fiction. This movie is beautifully shot, and the script delivers. The acting is edgy and raw - you really believe these boys have no hope of securing any moral boundaries. Many people will find the ending hard to watch - but this is a movie that should be watched - even only once.

Worst film i have ever seen.
The filming itself is embarassingly awful!
There is no story line.
Most of the dialogue is inaudiable.
Danny dyer features for no longer than 5 minutes and quite frankly let himself down by agreeing to be a part of this so called movie.
Ridiculus ending, unnecesary, unrelated and revolting.
0 out of 10, save your money and avoid.

The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael

If I could have given this film no stars, it would have got it.
Poorly acted, shocking script, the pace of a tortoise, and directing straight from a media students first attempts at film making.
Dyer is in the film for about 10 minutes, and frankly what he and some of the other actors/actresses are doing in this film is quite baffling.
The scenes of violence are intended to shock; and they do. They are however completely out of context to the rest of the film, as are the clunky references to Marquid de Sade, drugs, unemployment and the war in Iraq. Quite simply, avoid.

This one began as a rites of passage film and ended with the most violently graphic scenes I have every seen, worse than Irreversible! Well performed and scarily convincing. Danny Dyers cameo is excellent and it is a comment on the way life has degenrated. If you like film noir, this is for you.
