Storyline

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

Goofs

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 »

Strange but interesting, a cult classic in the making?
17 August 2016 | by warpster-85460See all my reviews

This really took me by surprise. It kind of is ID, and kind of isn't. It's Shadwell (and I really love how that environment has been brought up to date - owned by Russian billionaire, season tickets cost too much etc), there's some characters we know and love (Gumbo!), but it's not John undercover now (though he does have a presence) but Mohammed, and we get deep into some politics that are way beyond the usual terrace shenanigans. I certainly didn't expect this film to take us into the area of extreme street politics, but then remember where the original film left us at the end, with John's "is he, isn't he" moment, and in a way this film picks up where the first one left off. And we get another big question mark at the end of this one too, quite cleverly. The screenwriter is being quite cheeky taking us into this territory (same guy who wrote the first one), but I think he has earned the right and largely gets away with it. There were some moments that really unnerved me, it can get quite close to the bone,but I don't want to do any spoilers here. Just enough to say that all is not as it seems. I know some people who love the original just want more of the same served up, like Green Street 2 or something, but then they probably would've complained if all they got was the same story again. Know what, ID was slagged off when it first came out and is now acknowledged, 20 years later, as a cult classic. I've got a sneaking suspicion the same will happen with this film. I was a bit bewildered when I first watched it, but the story stays with me and I keep thinking back to it, and will definitely have another look when the DVD comes out.
