    Default Rise Of The Foot Soldier *This Flick Is GANGSTA*

    I just watched this the other day, I had never heard of it before although it just came out to buy and rent. The movie was sick, it plays like goodfellas were it's played out over a timeframe, in this case 20 years. Set in London the story is about a guy who from the age of 16 as part of a football firm (soccer) goes on to be a part of the Essex/east london mob. The flick is violent as hell, more fucked up than anything i've seen in goodfellas and casino put together. When you see some dudes get a shotgun to the face at close range, you do see it at close range. Violence aside though the film had a good story with some great performances, it's not as good as goodfellas, casino or city of god....but it's very close. If you live in the uk wtf are you waiting for?......but if you are anywhere else I suggest you seek it out at some point. Just to give you some idea heres the trailer.




    Heres a link to where you can watch the flick http://joox.net/cat/2/id/2208405 If you haven't seen it, don't pass on it, especially you yanks.

    ^^ the film is called Everybody Loves Sunshine.

    I have the film, great British gangster film.

    Also, I have Rise Of The Footsoldier as well, its brilliant, it really reflects the lifestyle of East London and Essex back in the days, I know, I live here.

    Check out Essex Boys as well, which is the same true story as Rise Of The Footsoldier but not as good. Or just check out the website for the Rettendon murders where you can see the real pictures of the gunshot wounds of the murdered victims.

    I'm a true master, you can check my credentials, cause I choose to use, my infinite potential.

    As I transcend celestial deserts, in search of an oasis / vanishing dreams to lay the fundamental basis / my soul chases / opposite dimensional spaces / material world just erases / I see a thousand faces / as I look into the perpetual sea / a million children follow me / into the molecular structure of infinity.
