Writer/director Herman pulls off a popular, proletarian comedy which might actually appeal to the people it's about.

An accessible, entertaining package that is at once formulaic and cliché-busting.

Brassed Off drives toward an ending that combines bitterness and high spirits, plus a heavy measure of romanticism. Like the movie itself, it's an odd mix with a lusty, lingering appeal.

Like the music it celebrates, "Brassed Off" is in-your-face yet sentimental, rousing yet sad, defiant but full of heart.

Director Mark Herman conveys England's controversial mine-pit-closure program in a dark, docudrama style that echoes the gritty realism achieved in the works of Mike Leigh and Ken Loach.
