Flick of the Week: Rise of the Footsoldier (2007)

Rise of

Rise of the Footsoldier is one of the most compelling football (soccer) hooligan movies since Gary Oldman’s appearance in the Firm.  The flick follows Carlton Leach’s rise from typical hooligan to hired muscle to organized criminal to retirement.  Yep thats right folks, this is based on a true story that eventually culminates in the famous Rettendon murders of 1995.  As a kid that grew up in the American rave scene, it was quite interesting to watch how involved gangsters became in British club culture.  I’m not so sure I would have done some of the shit I did knowing these guys ran the show.
