User Reviews

 
Named "Skinhead" in several countries...
1 October 2018 | by ransmyrSee all my reviews

...but has nothing whatsoever to do with skinheads or true skinhead culture. The fact that a bonehead nazi is listening to "A message to you, Rudy" (originally by black singer Dandy Livingstone, here in a version by british singer Judge Dread) proves that the makers of this film really had no idea what skinhead culture is really about.
