Testosterone and football combine to paint a violent portrait of middle-class England in director Nick Love's adrenaline-charged adaptation of John King's popular novel. Tommy is your typical twenty-something soccer fan; bored with life, in love with lager, and always looking for a little action from the ladies. Of course there's the fighting, too. When Tommy exchanges blows with a rival football fan and the situation quickly spins out of control, the thuggish sports fanatic is prompted to reconsider his brutal lifestyle and make a change for the better.
