An orphaned Jamaican baby, adopted by an elderly white couple and brought up in an all white area of London, became one of the most feared and respected men in Britain. CASS grew up in a time before political correctness and was forced to endure racist bullying on a daily basis, until one day when the years of pent up anger came out in a violent burst. CASS found through violence the respect he never had and became addicted to the buzz of fighting. His way of life finally caught up with him when an attempted assassination on his life, saw him shot three times at point blank range. His inner strength somehow managed to keep him alive but he was left with a dilemma; whether to seek vengeance as the street had taught him, or renounce his violent past. Written by
The film received a full blown (cast and crew) premier at Cineworld on Broad Street in Birmingham, UK. In order to accomplish this the cinema had to order a print of the film as they were not going to originally show it. Cineworld, Broad Street is itself the premier cinema outside of London in the UK. Other cinemas adjacent to Cineworld, Broad Street took note of this and ordered copies themselves, this had a dramatic effect on promoting the film. Accordingly the cinema run of Cass broke any and all expectations, pushing it to the very top of 18 rated movies that year in the British made film ratings. See more »

There's many British gangster movies / football hooligan movies. Cass i certainly a candidate for being one of the better ones out there. I never go into story lines etc and try to keep my reviews brief and to the point here on IMDb. Basically if your a fan of the better UK movies like Football Factory, Green Street, Rise Of The FootSoldier, Clubbed etc then there's no way you will not enjoy this. Being based on a true story makes it even more engrossing for me and it's one i would recommend hence me giving it 8 stars.
One downside is that it gives off a bit of a budget look... almost older then it is look with the visuals but its a solid British flick. Deffo check it out.
