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.
The film's repetitive structure never quite resolves into something we can properly engage with, especially when a somewhat heavy-handed message rears its head.
This is an engaging, well made and sharply written British drama that is definitely worth seeing. Great soundtrack too.
There isn't, in fact, a single off-key performance in what is otherwise an ordinary film.
When Anozie isn't delivering a tired voiceover about honour on the terraces, we're treated to rubbish fights, feeble dialogue and mockney accents. Dreadful.
Crunchier than an ICF coshing and about as subtle.
What follows is your standard footy ruck saga - stabbings, jail, love of a good woman.
A mature take on this most contentious of issues, and quite possibly the best film on the subject in 20 years.
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.
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.
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.
