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
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 »
I am shocked by the low ratings this movie is getting here. I ordered the bluray from Amazon before I read the reviews and thought to myself, "oh crap" Thankfully I got down to watch it and at the end I thought it was a great movie, with a plot that is intelligent, injecting a new storyline which is very relevant in today's UK. A strong 8 from me!
