The so-called "gangster movie" — quite a specific genre, which is like fans & haters. Under the definition of "bandit" I mean not any crime film, and it is a movie, whose main character was would the bandit. Not some "noble robber", which is technically "bad", but actually — positive character, and it is natural the culprit, according to which "jail". Typical example — the French "Enemy of the state N1" Jean-Francois richer, well, our "Boomer", where such anti-heroes — as many as four. And the perception of such films depends on the viewer with which side are shown the villain. It is, it can be represented as a scoundrel and a scumbag, and might look like "victim of circumstances", which must be understood and to regret. Personally, I prefer the first option, because the "bandit, it is the bandit", and he is a bad — by definition. But when the "gangsters" are trying to "improve" as in our series "Brigade", then this is a controversial artistic way. But the British film "rise of the foot soldier" refers to both time to the first option where the bandits are shown as they are.
The main character — London hooligan Carlton Leach, began his criminal career in a circle of aggressive football fans. Along with the company of the same "Portorosa", Carlton was hanging out on the stadium, toadstool, booze, and actively beat the face I head to other "football men", aching for the competing teams. But growing up, Leach gradually changed the profile of activity with meaningless street fights, in meaningful racket, "protection racket" and banditry. And not even though that the Carlton was a wife and children, he has always remained a typical street crazy wacko, just now he is "bouncers brains" not for this football club, and for the loot, drugs and authority.
The film is based is extremely tough and realistic, without any sentimentality, the melodramatic lines and "lesbijkami". Leach and "brothers at arms" shows such incorrigible bastards, what else need to search! It is not "robinhood", and geeks, each of which deserves a prison or a bullet. Their life — it's endless violence, blood, murder. These scum only respect themselves and other people for them, including their wives, is a meat, which is not need to be considered. For anything never felt pity or one of them, even when these "heroes" have caused pain to others like "heroes".
The question — what good movies, whether to watch it? A good in the ribbon that it shows the "path of scum" with such directness, brutality and bestinsurance that is truly frightening. It I time about those viewers who are in love the characters of the series "Brigade", as from the cute, the cute and good guys who, you know, "just in a bad the path of truth". Incidentally, the film "the Brigade" also love how interesting and fascinating movie, but the main characters too cute and attractive viewer. So "rise of the foot soldier" is much more honest in terms of "uncovering the essence" of these bandits. And the tape should see the someone else live the illusion that the thieves and murderers can be "nice guys".
"Rise of the foot soldier" — the movie is not for everyone, not only because of its specific topic, but and because of the outrageous "blood" visuals. In his desire to show violence as disgusting as possible way, the Director has reached exorbitant heights. In some episodes it seems that you do not look crime drama, and natural horror film, like "Hostel" or"Martyrs". Torture, blood, gunshot and knife wounds close up — just in "Climbing..." with plenty. So, sitting down to watch this feed, expect a very cruel spectacle.
Speaking about the General excitement of what is happening on the screen, the film can be divided on two parts. The first half of the film is very dynamic and exciting — just the youth of Carlton Leach and his entourage. And the picture is much more peaceful at the pace of the narrative, and in essence reflects the life of the maturity of the protagonist. It has a youth Lich was just a "daredevil", it into maturity, he became a much more cautious and circumspect. But age still not did the Carlton better, he has always remained a bastard.
Personally, I appreciate this movie as the uncompromising truth of life, but to him he only advised those who are ready to such a spectacle.
