Dir: James Nunn
Starring: Scott Adkins and Joey Ansah
A reformed football hooligan returns to London to avenge the death of his younger brother
Like the first movie, Green Street (qv), there are plenty of railway scenes in this film, but at least the continuity is a damned sight better. The film opens with Scott Adkins travelling down to London and we see him onboard a ‘Voyager’ DEMU and then waiting on the platform of an unknown West Coast main line station. A Freightliner is shown passing through, but it is edited in such a way that we do not see the loco. He then boards an unknown train that may well be a Class 350 ‘Desiro’ EMU because that is the class that features in further onboard scenes that includes an arrival at London Euston. There is a brief, blurred glimpse of a Class 390 ‘Pendolino’ at Euston, but throughout the film there are plenty of good shots of 1996-built Jubilee Line underground stock and DLR units in the Star Lane area of Canning Town. A scene of massed hooligans outside Bruce Grove station is a particularly good piece of continuity as Bruce Grove is the nearest station to Tottenham Hotspurs’ White Hart Lane ground where many rival ‘meet ups’ over the years have taken place. Finally, there is a shot of the London Eye at dusk with a ‘train’ crossing Hungerford Bridge and in a night fight scene in a scrapyard, there is a partial glimpse of a ‘Networker’ EMU passing above the crowd on the viaduct behind.
