Trivia

The plot of the film is loosely based on "Operation Full-Time", a Scotland Yard undercover operation which attempted to identify the leaders of West Ham United F.C.'s firm, the Inter City Firm (ICF). However, none of the real life officers suffered John's (Reece Dinsdale) fate in the film. See more »

Underrated
15 May 2001 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

A solid, often gripping little movie, Id has never had anything like the wide release it deserves. Made for television but released cinematically in the UK, the film has overcome the sloppy and ignorant reviews of the time to become something of a small scale cult fave. The reasons are immediately apparant: the dialogue is excellent, the acting is superb (at least most of the time), and the raw direction by debutante Phil Davis gives it a gritty but always unique feel. The original score is very impressive too, only ever adding to the atmosphere. The "Taxi Driver" style plot U-turn midway through comes a little late in the day to have much impact, the narrative suffering a little from being pushed from thriller territory into dark character study so suddenly.

Nevertheless, a borderline great film, lacking in style and subtlety, but more than making up for it in all other departments.
