In fact, a lot of actors who appear in this movie also feature in Footsoldier but in different character parts. Dave Legano plays Jack Wholmes in this film, but played Big John in Footsoldier. Neil Maskel (Craig rolfe) played the role of Darren Nicholls in footsoldier. See more »

Goofs

When Craig Rolfe is arguing with his wife at their home he open and slams shut the fridge, several of the fridge magnets are clearly visible and relate to films and events that took place well after 1994, in the top left hand corner you can clearly see a fridge magnet of Doug the talking dog from the movie Up (2009).

foul language, tough guys, hot chicks, dangerous drugs, big guns, oh, and a Porche for good measure
17 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As someone whose taste in cinema does not usually run to much violence, choice language or blood (vampires excepted); I really enjoyed this film! No mere fest of foul language, tough guys, hot chicks, dangerous drugs, big guns, oh, and a Porche for good measure - although it's all there - "Bonded by Blood" has much more going for it. Cleverly directed by Sacha Bennett, this film has excellent touches of visual humour, some very funny lines, and a number of intense performances. There is even a Shakespeare reference - but don't let that put you off! Tamer Hassan as Pat Tate, high on cocaine and drunk on machismo is superbly scary. You have to duck when he starts pumping out the expletives. Altogether a much classier offering than previous efforts in this genre.
