I'd like to just chime in and say that I thought it was (utter) utter shite. - Vague plot that seemed to veer off half way through, mindless thugs who didn't really do anything except say "caaaant" and 'faaaack" a lot... The lead actor was diabolically bad - but I'd put that down to the ropey script more than anything. I remember this case from back in the day, it would've been great if they dealt with it in a more 'realistic' manner rather than try to summarise the 'nineties' in 90 minutes. God, it was awful.

I want my 90 minutes back!

Rise Of The Footsoldier - Extreme Extended Edition out December.


I thought it was an extreme film anyway, I wonder what the difference will be?


5 years ago Rise Of The Footsoldier was released redefining the British Gangster genre. Based on the true story of the brutal Rettendon triple murders in 1995, Rise Of The Footsoldier introduced viewers to the cut throat world of Essex organised crime. Now 5 years since it's release revisit the terraces of the east end with the new Limited Extreme Extended Edition Steelbook, featuring over 20 minutes of all new extreme footage and an all new commentary and interview with visionary Director Julian Gilbey.

I enjoyed RotFS but to call Gilbey a "visionary" director is stretching it more than just a little.  :-\ :-*
