A very below average somewhat comedy cop drama with a good cast that nowhere lives up to an enjoyable movie. Filth tries entirely too hard to be something more. The jokes are way too disturbing and only come across as “shock value”.

The storyline isn’t even worth talking about, just boring and bland. The characters make you question why they are even police officers in the first place. James McAvoy was why I put on this movie. He rarely does a bad movie, but “rarely” means that once in a while he does a bust…this was that bust.

In short, this movie is bad. It tries to be something more than it is and takes a very odd approach to comedy. I guess the title sums it up perfectly. Filth gets a well-deserved 1/5.
