Let's be honest here, we churn out quite a few gangster/crime movies over here in Britain and many of these are utter tosh... But please keep an open mind because The rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan is fresh, fast paced, funny, violent exciting AND it's a true story.. So what more could you want?!

OK a few more sex scenes would have been a bonus but that's a minor gripe and an irrelevant one really as this film focuses on the crime being put into operation by gangsters. This theme is both original and cleverly handled. I won't give details about what it is you'll have to watch it to find out! A special mention to Nick Nevern and Simon Phillips who have great on screen chemistry in a bromancey sorta way. Billy Murray does what he does best and is an intimidating and necessary evil. All in all it's money very well spent. When you consider the amount of rubbish on the T.V. this film is more than worth investing in you'll watch it again and again - it's a film where there are certain classic lines that you'll be repeating to your mates. Do yourself a favour and get on it! It's an insight to a fascinating world that is going on around us all...
