Payback Season is an urban thriller starring Adam Deacon (Kidulthood, Adulthood, Shank,Anuvahood), Nichola Burley (StreetDance 3D, Donkey Punch) and David Ajala (Adulthood, The Dark Knight).
The story follows Jerome Davies (Deacon), a young man who has beaten all odds to escape the council estate he grew up on and make something of his life as a professional footballer. However, close encounters with old friends on the estate where his mother and younger brother still reside cause Jerome’s life to spiral out of control. With his new found fame and fortune, can he balance his old life with his new?
So another UK “URBAN” film featuring a council estate, violence, menacing young black men, UK / Jamaican street slang, some dodgy acting in parts and Adam Deacon. Great. It should be a box office smash.
And has this film already been screened and reviewed by film critics? I am asking because on the poster it’s giving that impression. It looks like the film has already been issued with a four star rating and is apparently “SUPERB A MUST SEE”.
There have been instances in the past where ‘hyped up quotes’ from publications have featured on newly released posters before a film is even fit for screening.
Anyway music producer Danny Donnelly directed and wrote Payback Season and it will be released nationwide on March 9th.

There has to be a balance somewhere in the UK, at least in the US you have ghetto films but you also have black family films, comedies, history, dramas in the UK it’s just all the same. I don’t even think Adam Deacon a good actor because he plays the same role in every film.
I think the poster does a good job of telling us all we need to know about this film. However I look forward to seeing/posting the trailer. 🙂
To be honest after looking around, I’ve noticed that there are good UK black films they just don’t get promoted or the budget like urban films because they aren’t showing black people as negative This film looked good
Same ol same ol movies with this dude. Just another rip off…. of our culture. But it may be worth the boot leg copy….. @Chico- Rei…. good post ….now that is something i would pay to see. Let me know when it comes out…so i can see if i can get a copy…….
Is it me or is Mr Deacon looking less ‘Urban in that poster?
