'Green Street Hooligans 2'
(Marina Sirtis, Ross McCall, et al / DVD / R / 2009 / Vivendi Ent.)

Overview: When the top players of the Green Street Elite end up in jail following a deadly encounter with their archrivals, Millwall, every day becomes a fight for survival. On the inside, rival firms and prison guards will stop at nothing to make their lives a living hell, leaving the lads with no choice but to stand their ground and fight. The clash between the two most notorious firms culminate in a battle on the soccer field.

DVD Verdict: This so-called 'sequel' to the violence of soccer (football) terrace Firms set in the violent world of British football hooliganism is a straight-to-DVD affair ... but shouldn't be taken lightly either.

When several members of both the West Ham firm and the Millwall crew are jailed following the events of the first film, the rivalry between the two clubs continues, culminating in a brutal football match between the prisoners as a way of settling their differences once and for all.

The punches hit hard, the blood spews from broken jaws, the language is raw and brutally honest, and the fight scenes, well, let's just say British hooligans don't know a karate chop from a pork chop! The thing about British terrace Firms is that they use things around them to fight with and so to watch these muscle-built, chiseled hunks go at it Hollywood style is a little off.

Fighters in the UK are always lower rung, blue collar cubicle workers (or unemployed and drunk) and so there is no time for the to hit the gym and work their bodies into such shape, trust me!

That aside, the story and screenplay were developed by former hooligan turned author Dougie Brimson. Throughout the film, the Green Street Elite fight other firms such as Tottenham Hotspur's Yid Army, Birmingham City's Zulus, Manchester United's Red Army and, of course, Millwall's Bushwackers. This 'sequel' (basically a money-spinner off of a tepidly-accepted film over here in the States) is good, but no original. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
