Rise of the Footsoldier - Limited Extreme Extended Steelbook Edition
  • Description

    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.

    Hooligan. Gangster. Legend. This British crime epic charts the inexorable rise of Carlton Leach from one of the most feared generals of the football terraces to leader of a notorious gang of criminals who rampaged their way through London and Essex during the late eighties and early nineties. The story spans three decades: from football hooliganism through to Leach's burgeoning career as a bouncer, his involvement in the criminal aspects of the early 'rave' scene and subsequently his rise to power as one of the most feared and respected villains in the country. As his notoriety increased, Leach became entwined in a violent series of events, which culminated in the Rettendon Range Rover murders of 1995, one of the most infamous slayings in British Gangland history. This is his story.

The Rise of the Footsoldier

Depending on your sense of humour, this is a comedy montage of every cliche used in all British gangster and football thug films of that era and i found it very enjoyable, especially when the old "Essex Boys" plot line gets thrown in to add a bit of drama.

Rise of the footsoldier extended blu Ray

Brilliant film with extra violence and nudity. Loved it
