Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) You find yourself cheering it along. Rated: 4/5 Sep 3, 2010 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian In the end, there is something just a little too formulaic about the film. Rated: 2/5 Sep 2, 2010 Full Review David Gritten Daily Telegraph (UK) Feels oddly detached from the compelling genre of music it claims to advocate. Rated: 2/5 Sep 2, 2010 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall Even though the plot of this 1970s-set drama is a bit simplistic, the film is sweet and surprisingly dramatic, holding our attention because of the energetic, good-looking cast. Plus all those groovy outfits and songs. Rated: 3/5 Sep 9, 2010 Full Review Daily Express (UK) Everything about SoulBoy is predictable and yet it manages to deliver a passably entertaining little slice of British entertainment. Sep 7, 2010 Full Review Brian Pendreigh Radio Times It's more than a little clichd, with a disco-floor bully who's straight out of panto, but the music and period detail will help take your mind off such deficiencies. Rated: 3/5 Sep 2, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The story is itself is not that much of a surprise, girl loves boy, boy loves other girl but in the end they find each other, seen a 1000 times...but what is really outstanding is the music and the dance scenes, if you are into Northern Soul, this movie will make your day! Keep the faith! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A very effective recreation of mid 70s Midlands & Northern Soul youth culture. Nicely characterised with a well balanced cast and full of well thought out period touches. Short and sweet! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
