Then I realized the movie's point is that someone like this nerdy Harvard boy might be transformed in a fairly short time into a bloodthirsty gang fighter. The message is that violence is hard-wired into men, if only the connection is made.

A great film because of it's realism and the ability to show viewers a world that exists even today, but not everyone knows about.

The movie, though, is nonsense. At its most credible, the story evokes fond memories of the adult drug narcs hiding among American high schoolers on ''21 Jump Street."

Terrific.

New York Post
Director and co-writer Lexi Alexander choreographs the fight scenes with thrilling chaos, and the plot unfolds expertly if melodramatically.

New York Daily News
Wood is compelling, but Charlie Hunnam ("Nicholas Nickleby") is the one to watch.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A silly melodrama.

The Hollywood Reporter
Viewers hoping to understand the senseless phenomenon of football hooliganism would do better to rent Alan Clarke's nearly 20-year-old "The Firm."

Empire
A surprisingly rose-tinted look at a subculture that really should have been stamped out some time ago.

Chicago Tribune
This is "Fight Club" without the irony or the metaphysical gaming.
