Trivia

However, none of the real life officers suffered John's (Reece Dinsdale) fate in the film. See more »

Superb movie depicting, football, class and violence
21 August 2001 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

This is quite simply the best football/realistic portrayal of the English working class for some time.

It pits a middle class suburbanite home owner, a true product of Thatcher's Britain, who curiously appears in a picture on the wall of several offices during the film, against the white working classes, the forgotten men of England at the time.

The film truly shows that despite all his middle class ideals, he and his friends are still the people they once were, perilously close to the edge and the violence of the impoverished forgotten young male.

The films greatest strength is perhaps that it stays away from the game of football and sticks very firmly with the soccer hooligan. You cannot ignore this film. Its charecterisation and portrayal of individuals is flawless... no wooden acting here.

Without a doubt one of the better movies to be made at this time, long forgotten and overlooked, it can actually offers an almost historical insight into the social influences of our history, and goes some way to explaining the origins annd causes of the English disease
