Comments

This film was probably the worst attempt ever at trying to educate North Americans of the so called "English Disease"

I suggest that you try and get a copy of "The Firm" starring Gary Oldman. This is a film made back in the 80's about a gang of thugs from London (who, surprise surprise, support West Ham). I am not saying that this film is any more realistic that the one you are talking about above but believe me when In say that Oldmans portrayal of the psychotic estate agent Becksy is absolutely fantastic!

Green Street Hooligans was/is an absolute turkey of a movie, none of it is right, the accents, the clothing - which was a bit out of date really, their age (far too young to be running a firm of lads). This is just a really bad movie!! Another alternative would be the Football Factory - not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination but at least it is slightly better than the appalling Green Street!

u 2 are so full of sh*t its scary, its a poor attempt by a german to understand the hooligan problem in this country, it doesnt even come close.
The simple fact is, that its a social issue that has never been tackled in this country, its pushed to the side and heavy legislation is thrown at it rather than tyring to find out why, so many young men i nthis country want to fight.
Its full of bad cliches, bad acting, bad scripts and poor dialogue.
Instead of using words like desire, sexually charged etc u should really take a deep look at yourselves and then take a look at the world we really live in.
Get a grip!
ps
as someone who was once in that scence, trust me, that film IS NOT realistic!

LEO GREGORY (BOVER) IS WELL FIT!!!!

the film is fuking top draw ur all cunts . . . go drink tea with ur mums u tree huggers

i think it was gd film, but the main blokes accent did my head in, very bad choice of actor, football factory was 10 times betta, but green street not bad lol

hahahahaha gd shout dannyboy, but tommy johnson is fuckin lege

Well yeh i agree you to do chat a load of fucking bollocks, lol. You 2 don't know nothing about the streets of London, or the people who inhabit them, so just stop trying to sound brainy and get a life.
Now that thats over with, the lads in the film were very real from a londoners point of view, the accents were excellent except charlie hunnams, but he only slipped up on a few words and phrases, like when he went american all of a sudden, with a little bit of australian thrown in there. Mate that made me cringe, But overall i think the film was fuckin sweet mate, seriousily it was a quality film in my eyes.

i absolutely love green street i ave watched it 23 times i no it a bit over the top but it is so good i fink the violence is cool because even tho the lads in dis film are very violent they are stil nice guys who have jobs the main reason i watched th film is because i fink pete (charlie hunnam) is so sexy he is fit and i carnt stop talkin bout him he is really nice. and i no hes acent is rubbish but haway least he tried a mean dont u fink it make him look sexyier

YO mate really? im from LONDON and yo haha thats the most loaded pack of tom i ever heard! really i am from West Ham and this si all bunch of bollocks !

GREEN STREET GREAT FILM.I THOUGHT THE FILM AND THE CAST MADE YOU FEEL A PART OF IT.PETE'S ACCENT WAS THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO IT THOUGH.THE ENDING WAS VERY STRONG AND THE MUSIC MADE IT EVEN BETTER BECAUSE IT WENT SO WELL WITH THE SCENE.EVEN IF I DID HAVE A LUMP IN MY THROAT.

I would just like to point out the fact that you called Charlie Hunnams english accent fake. It isn't fake actually he lives in England, and even if it was fake I thought he sounded sexy.

Well charlie hunnam is a babe and he is from newcastle and who cares if hes accent was a bit shoddy if u seen any of his other work you would know he has a british accent so there could be another reason why his acccent is dodgy maybe the directors wanted it like that ??
who cares charles is well fit and id watch him anyday

I agree Pete's accent was appalling! Is he Australian?

As for year film was set in well I did see a glimpse of the millenium dome in one scene..............
