Review of Green Street Hooligans

I am really not into action movies especially if I there are many movie options. However, yesterday was a totally different thing. The Green Street Hooligans, one of the action movies I've watched will make you feel a little crushed and a little sad. It is different from the other action/drama movies I watched before...
I usually don't cry over movies-- especially action movies. How on earth will you cry over some movie if the casts are manly, rude, and have destructive attitudes?? Well, that's what makes that movie different. It is about Hooligans-- a gang in London. Fan of a football team. Brutal people. They will be found fighting with other football fan gangs. What will touch you is the principles that their gang have. First is STAND YOUR GROUND. One should know his/her principles and should tick to it. No one should tell you what you should and should not do. If you think you are right on something, you stick to it. Don't turn your back on it. Reason out and fight, if needed. And second, LOYALTY. [Need not to explain much on this topic]

I have read reviews on this movie. Some say it is not a good one. Maybe they just cannot get the story. Hey, if they are after the real definition of the subculture of football gangs, maybe they should consult a dictionary or encyclopedia about it because they movie did not stick to the introduction of Hooligans (try watching Green Street 2. There, they said how the Hooligans originated.) Also, the movie is not about fighting-- alone. If you get into the deeper sense of the movie, the story tells you when to fight and when to run away. Make sins and know how to make amends. When to stand up for your rights. And most importantly, when to let go just to let things be right.
