It is the war within him--and by extension, within the minds of many embittered, working class young men left behind in Thatcher's England--that Meadows's film most strikingly portrays.

Steeped in the raw mix of ska and punk sound as expression of the youth alienation and misguided rage of those tumultuous times, an alarming voice of the surging army of jobless youth back then dubbed 'no hopers.'

Stephen Graham delivers a bravura performance as the brooding, mesmerizing Combo, clearly channeling Russell Crowe in Romper Stomper.

Meadows obviously knows the working class neighborhoods that he depicts. There's a grit and honesty to his film as he chronicles the mundane details of these kids' lives.

How sad and predictable is the fate of those who counsel violence as a means to an end. And yet how poignant it all seems when viewed through Shane Meadows' thoughtful lens.

An intelligent, spare, mean-streets sort of story, This Is England features superb performances...

You wouldn't think a film about a group of British skinheads during the early 1980s could be a sweet, nostalgic coming-of-age period piece, but that's the surprise of the authentic, fresh and utterly relevant This Is England.

Its tough but moving neo-realist approach make it one of the better British films of recent times.

This Is England grabs you by the scruff of the neck and yanks you into the Thatcher 1980s with brute force.

A post-punk gem of a drama that seems bent on being both funny and deadly serious.

[Meadows] captures the palpable anger of impoverished youth, without money or jobs or hope, seeking to blame somebody else for their troubles.

[Shane] Meadows' fictionalized version of these events is at least as vivid -- and at times as hard to watch -- as some of Ken Loach's more stark dramas.

A drama that's so potent and persuasive yet also natural and intimate that it almost has the heft of a documentary.
