John (Reece Dinsdale)is a smug copper who along with a colleague is
assigned to go undercover to delve into the violent world of the
football hooligan in 1980's East London. John becomes more and more
obsessed and embroiled in this world until it becomes a part of him,
which is certain to lead to trouble.
This is an extremely well made and engrossing film with top notch acting and some highly convincing characters. Reece Dinsdale, Sean Pertwee and Warren Clarke ,the pub landlord Bob, are excellent and ensure that this film is a success. We are presented with restless, dissatisfied angrey working class males whose way of letting out frustration is through football violence against enemy firms.
I have seen this many times over the years and it is a film I often come back to as it always guarantees excellent entertainment, a good story, great acting and characters. Definitely watch it
