    GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS: In 1988, British director Alan Clarke set a high benchmark for movies about soccer hooliganism with a brutal, unflinching drama called THE FIRM. Few dared follow in Clarke's estimable footsteps. But filmmaker Lexi Alexander, who joined a gang of soccer thugs during her childhood in Germany, seems well placed to be the director of GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS, which returns to the controversial subject matter some 17 years after Clarke's film. Matt Buckner (Elijah Wood) is a student who travels to London after getting kicked out of Harvard. Ostensibly there to visit his sister, Matt instead forms an unlikely bond with her husband's brother, Pete Dunham (Charlie Hunnam), who takes him to a soccer match to see his team, West Ham. At the game, the inevitable happens, and Matt's initial trepidation at the violence swelling around him soon turns into a pulse-racing, visceral thrill. Suddenly finding a taste for the hooligan life, Matt joins Pete's "firm," the Green Street Elite, leading to further booze-fueled confrontations and providing an opportunity for Matt to keep a journal explaining why he's attracted to such a violent pursuit. Surprisingly, Elijah Wood manages to fit perfectly into a role that seems ill-suited to his elfin, wide-eyed looks. British actor Charlie Hunnam, who starred in the U.K. version of QUEER AS FOLK and TV's UNDECLARED, neatly complements Wood as the Cockney boy who leads him into danger, and together the two actors manage to carve out convincingly violent characters. A loud, energetic soundtrack and roaming, trembling camera work create a disquieting atmosphere in a movie punctuated with scenes of rampant brutality. Sensibly not trying to ape Alan Clarke's approach to the subject matter, Alexander has instead created a very effective work built on her own experience.

    • Good UK Culture film

      Having lived in England for several years this is a bit dated in that hooligans are not everywhere like they were in the 80's, but gives a good portrayal of what some of the key drivers are in the obsession with football. I know a number of Hammer fans (as West Ham fans like to call them) and have been to Boleyn field myself and Green Street a variety of times before and after matches. Well acted by a number of solid UK actors and the on the pitch excitement and songs are top notch. ...Bubbles is still sung every match day (home and away) by the fans... I'm forever blowing bubbles Pretty bubbles in the air They fly so high Nearly reach the sky Then like my dreams they fade and die Fortune's always hiding I've looked everywhere I'm forever blowing bubbles Pretty bubbles in the air.

    • If you love Boondock Saints... BUY THIS!

      I recently saw this movie at a friends house, went out and purchased it the next day and have watched it several times since. This is truly a hardcore football fan movie- and Elijah Wood's defining character. The UK talent in here is fantastic as well, and if you enjoyed Boondock Saints, you will NEED to see this.
