Depth of story. Much more than a hooligan film. Many funny and ironic moments also. This will be enjoyed by football lads as well as general cinema goers. Looks like it could be a cult movie. I will definitely be buying the DVD. Good character development throughout the film. Most of the acting very convincing. Also attention to detail in the 60's and 70's scenes looked very authentic. Some hard scenes but overall good fun. Cameo appearances from some interesting sportsmen! Also touches on race issues of past decades. I never realised film was over 90 minutes until I left the cinema. <more>
All in all very enjoyable and I would recommend it!
A very well told hooligan story, with a great storyline (by mspostlethwaite89)
Having seen pretty much every football hooligan based film available, I was pleasantly surprised by this film. Perhaps the fact that the film is based on a true story explains why the storyline seems so fresh and original. Clearly there is the classic basis of a plot as for most films of this nature - new guy in the firm; earns respect; works the way to the top; gets a family; suffers a traumatic event or 2 and then seeks revenge. I think the reason that this film didn't bore me with the storyline is because you got a lot of background information on the main character Carol a.k.a. <more>
"Cass" , which is different to a lot of other films of this sub-genre.The film has a good balance of drama, comedy and violence. The drama is focused mainly on the main character and his relationships with the people closest to him. The comedy is very 'laddish', usually focused around sex and violence as you would expect of a film of this type! , and is very dry.As for the violence, I was very impressed about the varying ways it was shot. In the big fights in between the firms the camera puts the viewer right in the middle of the action with shots coming from the centre of the firms as they run towards each other. This is not to say you don't see any individual one-on-one scraps, but it is refreshingly varied.To conclude this is a very good film that drew me in quite quickly. The main character is very well played by Nonso Anozie and it is easy to understand how he became to be how he was. I would recommend this film to anyone who is bored of the other 'hooligan' films and wants to see the hooligan life from a slightly different angle. The only thing to note about this film is that there is very little focus on the actual football side of things, so don't expect to see the firms at any matches! All in all this is a great film and I would give it a 9/10.
Powerful story of a rise against racism and oppression (by joker_greenhouse)
I wouldn't usually bother leaving a comment, but I just finished watching Cass and was surprised to see people had slated the film here at IMDb.. perhaps leaving other folk interested in unique individuals worth reading about to overlook such a powerful story.If you are looking for consistent violence in a movie, it's not the movie your looking for. This film, and the underline story, is one of someones rise from ultimately unfair odd's.. and onto the best at what was offered. This also offers a valuable insight into an otherwise mindless brute, and to see the notions for his <more>
behaviour..Bottom line: Watch the movie if you detest racism.. don't bother if your going to overlook all that and have a whine at the end because you didn't see enough blood.
spare a moment or 2 to consider what this film's really about before forming a final opinion (by tonynature-1)
judging by the comments left by men wanting to see an accurately depicted film on footie thuggery this is not a decent hooligan flick.I am not sure what the attraction is behind hooliganism, I mean don't get me wrong i profess to be no angel. I am a 34yr old working class south londoner who has had in my day of course many a stupidly drunken night and day which have occasionally led to tear ups resulting in victory and defeat, but packs of tooled up geezer's week after week year after year to then turn around and claim to be some national violence hierarchy! nah mate i ain't <more>
'avin it. what was/is truly remarkable about this is 1 solitary black mans possibly god given path to stay and keep his head way above the water against any off the odds and become not only a player but ranked elitely among the top dogs if not the top. I for most of my childhood grew not too far from Cass's home town and were subject to similar experience's but had the sanctity of a home to which I culturally belonged. coincidentally I have also known Nonso in my past and I am truly proud at his portrayal of the man. as for Elaine Cass's wife not knowing a damned thing about the man's better half I felt that Natalie Press was not wooden or poor but actually quite sweet and find that viewers and critics alike expect Hollywood stellar performances far too often from actors portraying sweet n simple everyday fault filled folk. sadly or maybe not so sadly the budget was low so the film was kept gritty and simple as was working class Britain back then but the sentiment was high. a simple but great "1 man against the world and winning" story.
Proves that you don't have to be white..to be 'British'.. (by Angelus2)
An elderly white couple, adopt a child from Jamaica and raise him up during the 70's...I chronicles his life from being racially attacked... to actually attacking people for his beloved football team.The character of Cass is a man who blindingly loves his country and must face prosecution from others and constantly told he does not belong...I loved his rise, and the respect he accumulates from people.I found the prison part to be very fascinating as another Jamiacan British cell mate tells him about why he should care for his roots, and Cass's place in the world.The fight scenes were <more>
brilliantly shot and show Great Britain's hard men...We are not all like Hugh Grant..LOL..A good solid film with a great cast of actors..
