Movie Info

Testosterone and football combine to paint a violent portrait of middle-class England in director Nick Love's adrenaline-charged adaptation of John King's popular novel. Tommy is your typical twenty-something soccer fan; bored with life, in love with lager, and always looking for a little action from the ladies. Of course there's the fighting, too. When Tommy exchanges blows with a rival football fan and the situation quickly spins out of control, the thuggish sports fanatic is prompted to reconsider his brutal lifestyle and make a change for the better.

Audience Reviews for The Football Factory

    A good take on English football firms, The plot was abit weird, Not as many fights as I hoped for and focuses more on the firm members than the fights but with a good believable cast and some humour thrown in it ends up being a really good british hooligan film.

    Based loosely on a novel and directed by Millwall supporter Nick Love who clearly enjoys hard British gangs and fights you start to wonder if he participated in things like these himself. Basically this film is about football hooligans which belong to 'Firms' and enjoy nothing better than to beat the crap out of each other every weekend, whatever your poison I guess. The film is actually pretty decent and does keep you glued to the screen as opposing firms clash, lets be honest here there is nothing else on offer really, you know its about footie hooligans and you just wanna watch them fight, this film mainly follows Millwall and Chelsea. The plot is reasonably interesting as it follows Danny Dyer and his moral dilemma of whether or not to continue being in a firm, nothing amazingly original and not too hard to predict either but like I said you watch the film for the violence period. You know what your getting with this so for a footie hooligan flick its probably the best out there with a good cast of your regular cockney lads. Doesn't paint a very good picture of England lets be honest but truth be told we're just a bunch of hardnuts.

    Did not enjoy this at all. It was boring and full of violence and I know that was the point of the film but it's not my thing. It's good in the way it showed people that things go wrong and people can get hurt and I also liked the little side story about the grandfather and dealing with his loss. It shows how people of all ages can die.

    Hooligan firm movie £10. Ticket to the game £30. Ticket to Wembley £120. Seeing Danny Dyers head kicked in every ten minutes PRICELESS. For everything else there the 6.37
