A young British Asian, Mo is a fast-rising police officer who goes under cover infiltrating Shadwell's resurgent hooligan element, who are fired up by Shadwells's takeover by a Russian oligarch and their unlikely adventure into European competition. Mo quickly becomes embroiled in the local schism between the BNP and EDL and plans to build a new mosque in the shadow of the Shadwell ground creates an explosive environment in which football and political violence form a perfect storm of social unrest. In the midst of this, Mo is faced with the essential existential question of of who he really is and where he really belongs. It's 20 years on and clever Trevor is now chief super, but what happens to the rest of the gang? Written by ianregan01

Did You Know?


The Amsterdam, Holland scene was actually filmed in England's Hull's Trinity Square. See more »


The characters that are carried over from the original I.D. film are not old enough in this one. The original I.D. was set in the mid 1980's around 30 years prior to the setting of this film (but the characters in both films only appear to be around 20 years older, reflecting the age difference of the actors). In particular Trevor, already a Sergeant in the first film, should be around 70 and well over police retirement age by this one. See more »

Really really interesting movie
1 December 2016 | by beautifullywickedSee all my reviews

We loved this, and I really didn't expect to. A group of friends wanted to see this as a late night end to a party, and it didn't sound my cup of tea at all. I don't like football, I don't like violence, and I don't like boy films, but in the end it was me telling everyone else to shush. The boys liked all the laddy stuff of course, and I must admit it was energetic and exciting in those areas, depending on the adrenalin of the actors rather than cgi wham bam stuff, but what really got to me was the journey of the central character, Mo, who starts out in one place and ends up in another, but you never really know where he really stands, who he really is, maybe because he doesn't know himself. That kind of mystery and confusion about a character is just what gets me in a film. In a strange way it reminded me of William Friedkin's weird thriller Cruising. In the same way as that film, you finish at the end thinking and arguing about what you've just seen, about what the reality of it is. By the end I had quite forgotten this was a film about football violence, it seemed to be about so much more. I'll have to watch the original ID now too, there were lots of discussions by the boys comparing the two films, some liked the first one more. But in the early hours of the morning we were all really debating the film, and how many times can you say that. Highly recommended!
