Exclusive: Rupert Grint And Cherrybomb Rave Reviews! Plus HQ Promo!

February 25, 2009, 3:06 PM–Rupert Grint’s latest movie Cherrybomb has been touring festivals recently, and today we have some more reviews to share with you. First, our staffer Neglo (who turns 16 today — happy birthday dear!) has just completed her exclusive Cherrybomb review and report. As you know, she attended the final Berlinale screening of Cherrybomb. Read her article here (beware of spoilers!)

We also found a fantastic long review published by DrFunkenberry. Wanna know what they had to say about Rupert’s performance?

We are familiar, of course, with Grint’s work in the Harry Potter movies as Harry’s funny and fiercely loyal best friend Ron Weasley. So it is particularly interesting to watch his performance as a Belfast youth, caught between a stable, comfortable home life and his desire to prove himself a dangerous ‘bad boy’ to impress the alluring Michelle and keep pace with his truly wild best friend Luke. In this film, Grint is unrecognizable from his Ron Weasely persona. He makes an impressive transformation, both physically, trading Ron’s shaggy ginger locks for rockabilly slicked-back hair, and in his character. With an insouciant smirk and latent intensity behind a calm exterior, Grint is convincing as Malachy, a hard-partying guy who is essentially a good kid with a rebellious streak, an “A” student and a poet armed with a can of spray paint.

They also praise the rest of the cast and the film in general. Read the article here (warning: it also contains some spoilers).

UPDATE: You may read on some sites that Rupert is not attending the Belfast premiere. We mentioned early on that while this is most likely true, we decided to not post anything about this yet, because things might change and we do not want to confuse the fans. And in any case ICM staff will still be in attendance there to bring you more exclusives!

UPDATE #2: A high quality promotional image, featuring Malachy and Michele sitting in front of the Leisureplex, from Cherybomb can be seen here!

I know this doesn’t make any sense and it’s completely unintentional but i feel like such an outsider at ICM atm. I’m probably one of the only few left of the ICM ‘gang’ that hasn’t seen CB yet and it’s seriously depressing. *lolz*
