5 years ago Rise Of The Footsoldier was released redefining the British Gangster genre. Based on the true story of the brutal Rettendon triple murders in 1995, Rise Of The Footsoldier introduced viewers to the cut throat world of Essex organised crime. Now 5 years since it's release revisit the terraces of the east end with the new Limited Extreme Extended Edition Steelbook, featuring over 20 minutes of all new extreme footage and an all new commentary and interview with visionary Director Julian Gilbey.

Hooligan. Gangster. Legend. This British crime epic charts the inexorable rise of Carlton Leach from one of the most feared generals of the football terraces to leader of a notorious gang of criminals who rampaged their way through London and Essex during the late eighties and early nineties. The story spans three decades: from football hooliganism through to Leach's burgeoning career as a bouncer, his involvement in the criminal aspects of the early 'rave' scene and subsequently his rise to power as one of the most feared and respected villains in the country. As his notoriety increased, Leach became entwined in a violent series of events, which culminated in the Rettendon Range Rover murders of 1995, one of the most infamous slayings in British Gangland history. This is his story.

 Is it worth buying again? Hmmm...

| | See all kev1969's reviews (1)

The chances are that if you like this sort of film then you already own the original version - if you don't, then this new cut is well worth buying. The big question is whether it's worth buying again if you do own the first version. It's a toughie to be honest. It stretches the running time to 2hrs 15mins by making the football sections slightly longer and padding out the story in places but it doesn't make a huge difference on the story. The new interview with director Julian Gilbey isn't very long, and is basically just him trying to justify us buying the new version. The other extras aren't new apart from a new commentary track with Gilbey and actor Terry Stone, which is quite entertaining but not worth 13 quid on its own.
The Blu Ray transfer is fine, and the sound is great - the music works really well so quality wise you won't be disappointed.
The bottom line is that if you can afford to buy this again then do it, especially if it drops in price soon. I really liked the original and although this didn't offer anything major it still came back as the brutal, exciting and violent film it was 5 years ago. There has been a few films and documentaries about the Landrover shootings over the years, with one of the latest versions suggesting Darren Nicholls (whose sole testimony put Steele and Whomes away) was actually an undercover police officer. This isn't mentioned in the film, but is another take on a mystery that just doesn't seem to want to go away.
