User Reviews

a realistic and dramatic movie
25 June 2000 | by (Linz, Austria) – See all my reviews

This movie is about the disaster in the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, where 96 supporters died by getting pressed against the fences. Furthermore the movie is about the faults of the police that led to this accident. You can feel the pain and the rage that the family and the friends of the 96 have felt. The police (who is for me responsible) is trying to blame the supporters that should have been drunk and have had no tickets. The movie does not make a real or the right statement. It only shows what happened on this day and the following years. It shows the fight for justice by the families and the story of some of the 96 supporters. They will never be forgotten.
