Watch Green Street Hooligans - Alternative Versions.
First of all there hasn't been a good film about English Football
Hooliganism. Both ID in 1995 and last years FOOTBALL FACTORY either
failed to convince or just went down the familiar exploitative road of
glamorising the buzz and thrill of violence.
HOOLIGANS as the title suggests depicts what these aforementioned films
centre upon with the added value of having a story and characters you
care about. There's no avoiding the cliché's as the ranks of these
organised gang members are portrayed as gangsters.
Similar to BBC's Gary Oldman drama THE FIRM broadcast in 1986 it also
show the characters as normal members of society, family men with
respectable jobs. FOOTBALL FACTORY took the extreme and unconvincing
scenario that these weekend animals are florist's during the week which
might be amusing but the subject matter of organised territorial
football hooliganism needs to be given a serious look at.
Fortunately HOOLIGANS portrays this more realistically, sure there's
the stereo types in designer clothes (The Chavs) as we call them now
where loyalty, respect, revenge, dignity and pride are what they live
for, not the enjoyment of the actual sport. This simply acts as the
excuse to fight in a traditional gang warfare environment. The prospect
of West Ham's cup tie with Millwall brings joy to the faces of both
sets of fans.
Casting Elijah Wood is a bold move, he looks like a Choirboy but this
adds to the films main storyline of innocence corrupted. The acting is
better than average, despite letting his cockney accent slip on
occasions, Gang leader Charlie Hunnam shows a genuine mix of anger,
aggression and compassion which holds the film together.
This won't win awards but it's refreshing to see a film finally
tackling the subject matter that unfortunately has been a shameful
factor of Britain's attitude towards football as we are constantly
under threat of being disqualified from International tournaments due
to the bad behaviour of soccer hooligans.
