Consensus: When it comes to the subculture of soccer thugs, Green Street Hooligans lacks sufficient insight, and instead comes off as a Fight Club knock-off.

Bob Longino

It swims and sinks in melodrama.

Desson Thomson
Washington Post

Soccer needs this movie like Georgia needed Deliverance.

Hunnam e Wood exibem imensa segurança ao carregarem o filme, que também desperta nosso interesse através da análise dos motivos que levam pessoas comuns à violência das torcidas organizadas.

John Monaghan
Detroit Free Press

There's a good movie to be made about the violent world of British soccer, or football, as it's called on the other side of the pond. This isn't it.

Kerry Lengel
Arizona Republic

It's what you thought Fight Club was going to be, before it went in a whole other (and far more interesting) direction.

Green Street Hooligans loses any credibility it might have had the minute it tries to pass off Elijah Wood as a tough guy.

The script is a jumble of caricatures and cliches.

Joe Leydon

Pic amply demonstrates that Alexander -- director of Johnny Flynton, 2003 Oscar nominee for dramatic short -- has the chops to bring a fresh take to onscreen rough stuff.

Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

Nothing hits harder, or with less tact, than the overriding message, that Matt is really looking for a surrogate family.

Green Street Hooligans is one of those rare films where we get are glad we watched it and is probably Elijah Woods best performance (besides LOTR).
