Hunnam e Wood exibem imensa segurança ao carregarem o filme, que também desperta nosso interesse através da análise dos motivos que levam pessoas comuns à violência das torcidas organizadas.
| Original Score: 4/5

Green Street Hooligans loses any credibility it might have had the minute it tries to pass off Elijah Wood as a tough guy.

Nothing hits harder, or with less tact, than the overriding message, that Matt is really looking for a surrogate family.

At least three writers collaborated on a script that drums out loudly its themes of loyalty, honor and revenge, and the finished product dances quickly enough between cliches to make for passable entertainment.

It swims and sinks in melodrama.

[Alexander] is a better anthropologist than dramatist and her snapshot of this culture is more revealing than the story crafted around it.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

There's a good movie to be made about the violent world of British soccer, or football, as it's called on the other side of the pond. This isn't it.
| Original Score: 2/4
David N. Butterworth
October 20, 2005
German kickboxer-turned-director Lexi Alexander's brutal, unsparing portrait of disaffected youth running rampant amid the football stands and terraces of jolly old England.

Approaches the sociologically poetic sloganeering of the Smiths at Morrissey's most hooligan-lovestruck.

The script is a jumble of caricatures and cliches.

We learn that violence is bad, except when it feels good, or helps solve our problems.

Soccer needs this movie like Georgia needed Deliverance.

It's what you thought Fight Club was going to be, before it went in a whole other (and far more interesting) direction.

Pic amply demonstrates that Alexander -- director of Johnny Flynton, 2003 Oscar nominee for dramatic short -- has the chops to bring a fresh take to onscreen rough stuff.

Goes soft and mushy in personal terms even as it ratchets up the violence and decibel level.

The world of football riots seems rife with potential for the big screen, but Green Street Hooligans only periodically rises to it.
October 8, 2005
I wouldn't exactly say I liked this movie, but I guess you could say they do a good job capturing this element of society. The violence is appalling, extreme, and relentless.

[The director] and her team get some things right ... but there are weaknesses where it counts most.
Sean Axmaker
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
October 5, 2005
... a mess of romanticized notions of street honor and camaraderie in combat, pushed into hollow melodrama...

An energetic mix of Fight Club's adoration of violence and West Side Story's popularization of gang warfare.
