Authentic, Absorbing and Exciting

This is the best new movie of any genre that I've seen in many months.

The film really drew me into its world of neighborhood pubs, football supporters, and the dirt-in-the-cracks reality of London. The violence is believable, realistic, graphic, and frightening. As are the consequences of that violence. This film does not glorify hooliganism, it portrays it honestly.

Hooligans doesn't preach about mob mentality, or strength in numbers, rather it gives credit to the strength in the individual that lives up to his commitment to his friends though he may suffer because of it. (That's the best way I could word it without including a spoiler.)

The ultimate culture clash film

'Green Street Hooligans' is more than just a hilarious comedy movie, it's also a brilliant look at two very different cultures and ways of life. One being the violence driven world of football hooliganism, and the other the life of a middle class academic. It's a film that has just about everything - humour, violence, drama, romance, and much more. It is so much more than a comedy film and it pulls off everything it attempts.

While fights and violence account for a large portion of the film, it's the storyline and script that makes this film the classic that it is. Granted, a middle class American Harvard student finding himself in the English football hooliganism underworld is a pretty far-fetched scenario, but it does work and once you've got over the initial idea, 'Green Street Hooligans' is a hugely enjoyable film.

OK, but predictable

Despite what some reviews try to let us believe: it is exactly what the title says. It is a tough movie full of idiot behavior of scared, pathetic men. Of course there is always an other side to people. This also goes for hooligans. If you are irritated about stupid behavior too much and cannot look through the story, then this is not a movie for you. Otherwise this is quite a nice movie.
