Not very good, 5 January 2011
Author: Deano Apstarr from United Kingdom

This film is a very inaccurate portrayal of the men. I found it extremely disappointing after anticipating it for a few months. I found rise of the foot soldiers to be much more realistic and I guess there is a reason why it is, as ROTFS is a list of events told by an extremely reliable person, an extremely close friend of Tony Tucker and also someone who knew Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe very well, his name is Carlton Leach.

However 'Bonded By Blood' is a film by Terry stone, who has no personal knowledge of the murders or the people involved, and therefore has painted a more hollywoodised version and transformed the characters completely.

For instance Darren Nichols was an Essex boy from near Braintree, and not a rude-boy type who spoke similar to dizzy rascal. He was chubby and was pretty unintelligent. Jack Whomes was not a tall bodybuilder but instead average height and plump. The person who really made me laugh was Pat Tates character. I thought Pat Tate was of Irish descent and not Turkish! LOL. Tony Tucker had a strange mullet type haircut, and was not often seen in a suit. Craig Rolfe is also portrayed in this film as a young wise expert in handling guns, and very sharp and of strong status within the firm. The reality couldn't be further from the truth. He was Tony Tuckers little runner, that constantly got shown up publicly by the firm, he was also rather dim and had no valid opinion in the firm.

All I can say is its a good film if you want to watch a snatch / Rollin with the nines type film, but if you are like me and have read many books on the Rettendon murders and then watched this expecting it to be a very accurate story and portrayal of the characters involved then you will be very disappointed.
