Played this DVD with mixed feelings............ a movie about English Hooligans ain't exactly a promising story, and the fact that they have based it on my team's hooligans set the mood even lower.
Its not such a bad movie!!!
My missus used the word "enthralling" to describe it, and I must admit that I didn't want to pause it to go and make a cuppa
The story ain't so deep, with Frodo Baggins getting kicked out of Harvard, coming over the pond to London, meeting up with some Hooligans, lotsa violence, realisation of whats important in life and buggering it back to the USA.
Despite the shallowness of the story, it is actually quite an interesting film, bringing back some unsavoury memories of trips back from the Boleyn Ground on a Saturday evening, remembering the old headlines years back.
Overall, worth watching, maybe not more than once, but is good so that we don't forget about this and don't let it get out of hand again. The Director mentions that one aim of the film is to expose more Americans to Football (note the name and spelling boyz............. no such fing as Soccer awite!!!).
