SURPRISE...glad i didn't heed SOME anonymous assessments. kinda like michael mann and quentin tarantino collaborated. well done. good flick.
Started out like Football factory but it got rid of the boring middle bits and filled it with a pure English gangster emerging from Essex in is own world he was buildin "they way he wanted". The violince left nothing to the imagination.
The directing is so good they should make a movie of the director on his own.

A must see film.. Grab a beer put the kids to bed.. and thank God you had nothing to do with the Essex Boys
Forget what the critics say, this is one film that's a must see. Based on actual events, Rise Of The Foot Soldier follows Colton Leach and his friends as he goes from footie thug to gangster and leading up to the 1995 range rover murders. Packed with gritty violence and powerful performances, it's one film you will never forget. Although it's cast is virtually full of unknowns, there are some famous faces including Billy Murry (Eastenders) and Craig Fairbrass (Eastenders, Cliffhanger).
Terrible Movie.
Attempts to be Lock Stock but fails with just a protagonist who you is just a thug. With a little justification of his motives then maybe it might be interesting.
