    few re tags in the background to.. personally I don’t rate this movie, maybe if you got rid of the stuff with the to pensioners it would help, don’t get me wrong I think they didn’t a reasonable job emulating terrace culture, the cloths, the types of characters involved, I even know one relatively notorious ‘top boy’ who works at a flower market, but the plot was pretty weak, the cinematography etc was nothing to write home aboyt and the whole thing just reaked of some one trying to cash in on a subculture (beat street?). I get the feeling the people who made it just wanted to create something that pays homage to that scene, they weren’t to bothered about showing the realities rather showing the romanticised version, I know a lot of people that really look up to that culture and love this film…im waffling…cut you first you mug!!!

    i didnt think it was glamorising hooligans or anything like that..i thought it was fairly realistic..also, the making of the film on the dvd extras is a good watch

    a friend of mine is good mates with the young mixed race kid drug dealer type...the one who shoots he brere in the end of the film.

    apparntly, there were a few actors on set who had real experience of being football hooligans (ie. it wasnt acting, get me) while others had fuck all knowledge of football and hooligans....

    A couple years back I caught some special on A&E (I think) about the hooligan scene. I thought it was pretty interesting.

    So this flick doesn't have any sort of documentary value to it? Either way I'd like to catch it.

    I found it entertaining and it caught alot of the great atmospheres in supporting culture well. But its also just a film. Sorta like Trainspotting, but about hooligans instead of drugs.

    Oh shit! This is only my favourite book of all time! How can I find out if there are any screening over here?

    The book is part of a trilogy......Football Factory, England Away, and Headhunters. All revolve around the same group of hooligans, and all are absolutely phenomenal reads......

    Trust me, the book is much better then the film, but that's generally the case with most books turned into movies. I loved all three books in the trilogy as well, although his other book 'Human Punk' was pretty shitty.

    I haven't heard anything about the film being screened over here yet. You can download a workprint version of the film off of www.suprnova.org though (thats how i saw it).
