The Football Factory is a British film about the fierce football firms of London’s football clubs, and it focusses on the Chelsea firm, and the build-up to their FA Cup encounter with their old rivals Millwall, where a battle is sure to take place.
This was a very interesting film. Along with being quite entertaining to watch at points, often due to good comedy or some exciting action, it had a great story which was intriguing to follow, and the build-up to the climax of the fight between the Millwall and Chelsea fans was indeed very tense.
Although this was a very good film, the only thing I would have to mark it down on was the fact that it was at points a little too gritty, and although this is the reality for the people involved in the football firms in England, it was not always that enjoyable to watch, but I could still see that that was exactly what Nick Love (great director) was going for.
Overall, I’ll give this a 7.7 because it was both interesting and exciting to watch, despite being a very tough film to watch at points.
