I must be getting old (at 33) as I dont think this is a great film as the story is muddled at times & the acting isnt great. The violence is OTT with blood splattering from punched mouths etc and the lack of story weakens it further. kept me entertainment mostly but bits did drag on. 3 stars about as good as this gets but I can see the 5star appeal to a chav boy racer who wants to be a gangster

  The best British Gangster style film ever!

Whether the film is true or just loosly based around true events no one can deny that this is a fantastic film and one of if not the best british gangster/crime epic ever, baring in mind the budget for making this movie was very low, the film company and directors have pulled it off. If you like films such as Football Factory and The Business then you will love this, buy it today.....no in fact buy it now!

Such a great film. Yeah it seems like your average run of the mill london gangster flik but the adaptation from real life events and gilbey's interpretation of the main characters is facinating. A great watch and a must have in your collection!

This film was a cult classic with a great soundtrack to. Craig Farbrass was excellent as madman Pat Tate. A great scene is where Carlton , Cass and a few of the boys smash up someones Escort RS Turbo!!!!

  IT MUST HOLD THE RECORD FOR THE MOST "C" WORDS EVER USED!

Having read the mixed reviews of this film, I watched it with an open mind. This film spans three decades of the under belly of England's gangsters, and ends in the massacre of three leading members being assassinated in a Range Rover on farm land in 1995. I rememeber this happening, and all the speculation of who carried out the killings. This is adapted from mob member Carlton Leach's book, and although may play fast and loose with the facts, it does make up for a very entertaing,very violent, very foul mouthed night viewing. This film is similar to 2000's Essex Boy's also based on this event, but Foot Soldiers is actually a better film.
This may not be regarded as a classic, but if your a fan of The Kray's and The Football Factory, this will be greatly enjoyed.
It's nasty, brutal, and very good!
