The is only fun if for those that have fantasies about gang violence or for those that enjoy gang culture. The movie has a weak plot, and passes the idea that getting punched on the face is fun and turns you into a better man. Also the The is only fun if for those that have fantasies about gang violence or for those that enjoy gang culture. The movie has a weak plot, and passes the idea that getting punched on the face is fun and turns you into a better man. Also the movies sells the idea that a bunch of spoiled teenagers are big time gangsters and that is laughable. Expand

'Green Street Hooligans' comes complete with a boring, recycled plot, on which hangs a thinly examined world of soccer "Firms", and is then filled copiously with stupid coincidence, barely concealed plot turns and resolutions that, 'Green Street Hooligans' comes complete with a boring, recycled plot, on which hangs a thinly examined world of soccer "Firms", and is then filled copiously with stupid coincidence, barely concealed plot turns and resolutions that, on one hand make so little sense as to leave the viewer in disbelief that any human being could wander about this oblivious to logic and realism, and on the other hand remind the aforementioned viewer that he has seen this exact mind-numbingly impossible plot device literally hundreds of times before. The only joy that escapes from this film (seemingly accidental, although at moments one wonders) comes from some priceless voice over acting on the part of Elijah Wood, the sight of said Mr. Wood flinging his hobbity frame into battle over a bit of round ball as you reminisce about classics like 'North' and 'The Good Son', and a few choice renditions of 'I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles' that are guaranteed to cramp the stomach with fits of laughter.

Do the people who give this a ten watch other movies too? Geez. I gave it a 3 because some of the acting is the only thing that keeps one engaged. Elijah, who I am a fan of, is horribly miscast here.

How could anyone have enjoyed this film? This film was terrible, with a laughable plot, melodramatic dialog, and sub-standard acting. This film was so predictable it was as if my girlfriend, who watched it with me, was directing the film in How could anyone have enjoyed this film?
