Based on the life of Carlton Leech, Essex gangs and foot ball violence. This movie was ugly and horrible and the movie was just non-stop violence in every single part of this film. The characters are just despicable and unlikable that you wish there would die a lot faster. The story it self has been doing before in the past in better movies.

I couldn't see any development of the main character, but the story is told in a way where you would expect that the main character would learn from his experience. You can watch this, if you like guys beating each other up for what feels like three hours. Or better don't watch it at all :-)

"Rise Of The Footsoldier" by Yojimbo

A football hooligan and all round hard case works his way through the 90s club scene and into the drug trafficking underworld. Based on a true story, Rise Of The Foot Soldier is desperate to be the British equivalent of Scarface or Goodfellas but set as it is within the small time criminal underworld of glamorous Essex, it was never going to measure up. Although the protagonists of those stories perpetrated despicable acts, they did so with charisma and style as participants in an almost alien landscape where the normal rules of civilisation don't apply. Here, we just see a series of montages of gratuitous violence inflicted by fat necked, obnoxious geezers shouting "You FACKING CANT" at each other. It's impossible to like a single one of them and the films total absence of depth of chara...
