or the pretty girl gets it!"
Plastic features a believable cast of young Brits, a timely plot about credit card fraud and identity theft, and has just enough charisma to make it an interesting watch. When compared alongside its cinematic brethren - movies like Runner Runner or American Hustle - Plastic falls somewhere in the middle. Its plot is simple, the acting is just a hair beyond mediocre, and its influences are abundantly clear. Yet, its definitely a fun watch that will resonate with a younger audience that might enjoy the technical aspects and the cynical comradery between the members of this mostly youthful cast.

If you're looking to kick back with a movie that doesn't require too much thought, you'll probably like Plastic. It's extremely similar to other films in this genre, but is still an enjoyable feature full of troublesome adventures, hard headed villains, a tech savvy backbone, and a few laughs at the expense of a couple poorly executed characters. Check it out, but don't expect too much. Go in with low expectations and I think you'll enjoy Plastic for what it is.
