Storyline

In 2007 Queens Park Rangers, a small Football Club of West London, were bottom of England's Second League and 2 hours from bankruptcy. Just as the club faced liquidation, they were bought by billionaire businessmen. Filmed in an observational fashion from a poetic distance, the documentary follows the larger than life and high profile characters who put their money and reputations on the line through 4 tumultuous years of enormous ups and downs. For 98 dramatic minutes we are given unprecedented access and remarkable insight into the worlds of sport, business, finance, power and ego - culminating in success in 2011, when QPR won promotion to the Premier League and the four year plan - set out by the owners in 2007 - was spectacularly achieved.

Unbelievable film, great characters - fascinating insight
28 April 2015 | by thpmagnusSee all my reviews

Have watched this film a few times now and it gets better each time. It is filmed over 4 years (doesn't take a genius to work this out) and the access behind the scenes at QPR is unreal! It is gripping the whole way through and there are so many laugh out loud moments! One of the best documentaries you will ever watch and you definitely don't need to know anything about football to love it! The soundtrack is awesome and the pace of the film is sensational. The characters grow on you as the film progresses and you will genuinely not believe some of the conversations and moments captured on film. It's a fly on the wall documentary of epic proportions...Goodfellas meets escape to victory!!
