Great in its own right
As a true story it’s never going to feel like a Hollywood blockbuster, but compared to something like The Krays I think it stacks up superbly. This film feels real and as a side point the story should be respected, racism was rife in football at that time so the ‘achievement’ of Cass is even more remarkable.
I guess I’m a bit biased as I’ve met the man, met his wife and met his son (who had an extra role in Green Street).
Summary is this; a good film on a really interesting life and even though the narrative is grim, enough in the film to entertain, definitely recommend.
great lead performance by Anozie
i 100% disagree withe davideo-2 about this feature. the only thing that lets this film down is the over use of a black screen fade out between scenes and the apparent low budget. The use of the news reel footage of what was happening at the time adds nothing but realism to the situations that were happening at the time. Any attempt to try and reenact scenes such as the heisel disaster would have looked cheap and insulted the memory of those who lost lives and loved ones on that tragic day. Yes the editing could have been better but for what essentially is a low budget film by a fairly inexperienced director it is an entertaining viewpoint into the life of one of Britain’s most famous football casuals. The acting was brilliant all round and most of the fight scenes well choreographed even if they did lack the gore of rise of the foot soldier (a brilliant film about the life of Carlton leech) or the high budget effects of greenstreet (a Hollywood let down in the football violence genre) yes this is no ID or The Firm but it is a good honest insight into what went on and IS based on real events unlike the aforementioned 2 films
