Critic Reviews for Cass

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (7)

  • There isn't, in fact, a single off-key performance in what is otherwise an ordinary film.

    August 1, 2008 | Rating: 3/5
  • It never fully convinces you that he deserves a movie.

  • It is a bit better than many recent lipsmacking movies on similar subjects... but there's still the same self-serving, self-sentimentalising macho nonsense.

    August 1, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Inanimate dialogue and plodding pacing don't give the talented cast much to work with, and the camera is directed with all the grace of a pub brawl at closing time.

  • Though the narrative is saggy and you feel there's nowhere left to go after the first hour, a much-needed dash of class from Jon S Baird's direction helps lift 'Cass' above its oft-reactionary genre brethren.

  • Some dodgy dialogue and poor characterisation aside, writer/director Jon S Baird performs a blinder of a debut game.

    Take out the "yankee" from Green Street Hooligans and put a "negro" instead and you'll get Cass. Same team, same firm, same things. Not better than Green Street but more realistic. Based on a true story.

    It may not be directed by Nick Love, but apart from the racial element, this could have easily have been one of Love's films. Whilst it's based on a true story, we have seen it all before, the racial qualities bring out the unique story for Cass being brought up by white parents, but all in all it's another story of football violence.

    cass, the football hooligan of west hams intercity crew gets a version of his life, been seen and done before better with films like the firm, and rise of the foot soldiors, even films like i.d and the football factory, but a good performance from its star, keeps it watchable
