Movie Review by Movie Addict
January 16th, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "Yeah! This is England. And this is England, and this is England."

Tired of getting picked on, and looking to belong, 11-year-old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) joins a gang of skinheads that get their jollies doing damage to abandoned houses. Shaun is even getting it on with and older girl, Smell(Rosamund Hanson).

Things were a lot of fun and the movie was really funny until Combo (Stephen Graham) gets out of prison and shows up with Banjo (George Newton).

Combo breaks the gang in two with his racist ranting and association with neo-Nazis, but that was all it was, ranting. They rip off a store owner and tag tunnels, but mostly, they just spout nonsense and get high. The Falklands war provided a backdrop to the racism.

What was a funny movie turns to disaster.

It had a super soundtrack and it really got you absorbed in skinhead culture, which turns out to be really lame. Turgoose was fantastic.
