After the fight in the canteen Danny was dragged away by the guards, seen wearing laceless shoes. But in solitary he is seen wearing sneakers with laces, something that would not be approved in such a place. See more »

In the US version some phrases and terms were changed to make the film more understandable for American audiences. For example, when Doc is talking to Danny about why he is in jail, the original dialogue "his little nipper and his bird" are looped with "his little baby and his girl". Additionally in the US version, Nitro has a softer, Liverpool accent, whereas in the original version, he has a Newcastle accent. See more »
You simply cannot put this movie down, a great all British cast and a great all British sport, being British and a great lover of Manchester United, i was up for this film and it didn't diasappoint me in the slightest. Vinnie Jones was brilliant as Danny Meehan and Jason Statham as the 'Monk' was simply classic vintage stuff. The match is what the watchers of this film want to see and it is fantastically constructed, just one tip of advice, don't p*** of the 'Monk'
10/10 stars, classic stuff
