  Not All That

| | See all Glossopcrew's reviews (25)

Didn't think much to this film at all. The fighting is pants but the acting is pretty good. Watched this film after watching football factory and green street and it dosen't even compare. Worth a watch if you're into football violence but if you havn't seen Green Street or Football Factory, Get one of them instead.

  Not bad at all

I really liked this film. It's a remake of the old film but told in a different way.

I think it was put together rather well, and although a copycat of most other football holligan films, it still had it's unique style which I can't really explain.

It's similar to Awaydays in a way, but I think Awaydays is better than this. They both go into more detail about the character getting into this holligan style and then finding it hard to just walk away from it. I think Awaydays pulled it off better, but I still enjoyed this film.

The actors are pretty good, especially the main ones.

Overall it lacked certain aspects, but I would still say it's worth a watch. The clothes they wear can cause a few laughs too, and the music is top notch in my opinion.

Go buy it....now.

  Another nick Love classic!

Nick love brings the 80s to your living room, the fashion, the fighting, the music. One for the collection to watch time and time again :)

  Shame its a remake

If this film was an original i would praise it higher.But after seeing the original, i would have to say the original was a better film.This is worth viewing, the fashion is spot on for the year it is set in.Also Nick Love makes a good film, he is a talented, young director.Worth a butchers!

  not bad but???

I'l open you up like a village fete !! best line in the film, Other than that probably one of the worst "football hooligan" movies.... just above Cass ! worth a watch though.

  GREEN STREET!

| | See all curkoguy888's reviews (124)

Wasn't to keen on this film, didn't do much for mee, maybe because i'm not the biggest football fan in the world. Thought it quite funny instead. Is it just me or is it alot like Green Street which i thought was better!

  If you like hooligan films ...

then you should enjoy this one, the story line is quite predictable and like all hooligan films they seem to be set in the same area with the same clubs and its all been done before. I enjoyed the film although it was a bit short clocking in at just under the 90 minute mark. if you liked Green street and football factory etc then you will probably find things in this film that you will like but dont expect this to be overly different to those films. Good soundtrack also.

Watched this last night and was really looking forward to it. Massive let down. Nick Love's worst film yet by a mile. Do not waste 90 mins of your life watching this movie.

  rubbish

| | See all awesomecity's reviews (987)

this is nearly as bad as green street. pathetic acting, unrealistic characters, poor direction and story and totally lacking in authenticity. any fan of football or hooliganism or films will be let down. really, really bad.
