Blu-ray Review – Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story (2017)

Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story, 2017.

Directed by Zackary Adler.

Starring Craig Fairbrass, Terry Stone, Roland Manookian, Billy Murray, Jamie Foreman, Larry Lamb, Shaun Ryder.

Synopsis:

Prequel detailing the uprising of notorious Essex gangster Pat Tate before his murder in 1995.

It would be fair to say that anybody going into the third part of a movie series already has a good idea what to expect, and it would also be fair to say that anybody going into Rise of the Footsoldier 3 without having seen the first two films would also have a good idea of what to expect, that being gruff voices, casual violence, sex, drugs and the usual line-up of ex-Eastenders cast members dishing it all out whilst effing and blinding like it was an Olympic event. So with that in mind, you now know what you need to know about this film and

The film follows the rise of ruthless Essex gangster Pat Tate, who blazes a path from Marbella to the Medway in the late 80s, peddling pills and snorting coke and crushing anyone who gets in his way, in his quest for cash and power. Double- crossed by an ex-pat drug baron, Tate ends up in prison. Undeterred, he establishes himself as top dog inside, and gets himself in shape in preparation for his release – when he plans to reclaim his turf the only way he knows how – with violence, and no mercy.

Interview: Director Zackary Adler on his Kray Films Trilogy and cinematic snobbery

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Linda Marric

2016 was a great year for Zackary Adler. The New York born director has become a sort of a cult figure amongst fans of gritty British gangster movies; a genre which despite racking up hit after hit has until now remained on the fringes of the British film industry.

After the record-breaking success of his recently released films Rise of Krays (2015) and The Fall of The Krays (2016), Adler has also just finished directing the third instalment and prequel to Rise of the Footsoldier , a franchise based on real life events surrounding the Rettendon Triple Murders, better known as The “Range Rover murders”. The film will be released by Signature Entertainment later this year. And if that wasn’t enough, Adler is also about to start shooting the third instalment of his Krays franchise, titled The Krays And The Mafia.
