The original source material is compelling, but with the exception of the second vignette, the movie is not. And accents, my goodness, those accents couldn't be any thicker if they tried.

The stories are really good, but presented really bad in the movie. The baby looked like something from the 80s, the acting in the first one was horrendous and the ending was terrible. If you haven't read the story you might actually believe he is alive.

Kafka-esque Old Testament God and neoliberalism with slightly odd (simplified) accents and delivery bit 4/5. Amped-up kitchen sink bit 2/5. Dodgy animatronics class culture-clash bit 2/5.

A mixed bag with these three stories -- the first one has good intentions, but comes off as shabby with some poor acting; the second one has bad intentions, but has much better acting; the third one features a fucking creepy-ass animatronic baby (that actually gave me nightmares). Overall, this contains some unique sequences, but the directing is a bit too try-hard and it all could've been handled better.

Gotta love a movie that keeps you hooked, granted that is easier with three shorts in one movie. I am left wondering if the Brits fight this much in real life. Can definitely feel the Trainspotting influences.

I wish I could have said what's written on summary is all true. Stylewise it looks like a very cheap copy of Trainspotting. Same complex plot, but a messy treatment. All fine cast is what's left to watch.
