This could have been something great, but it seems that it couldn't quite decide what it wants to be. The interviewees seem to be largely members of firms who don't really offer much insight into the complex story of football violence.
It seems to lack real journalistic qualities that prevent it being taken seriously as a documentary. The worst part of all though is the horrible script for Sean Bean's narration. It tries at times for both wit and insight but ends up largely playing out like a bad episode of You've Been Framed.
It's worth a watch if you like seeing very rough footage of stadium violence but it's ultimately pretty hard to recommend.
