The Rise And Fall Of A White Collar Hooligan review

Beautiful game, ugly movie

Ever wondered what an English amateur dramatics production of Goodfellas might look like?

As far back as he could remember, Mike Jacobs always wanted to be a football hooligan. Lured into the glamorous underworld of credit-card fraud by a RADA reject with a plummy accent, Mike (Nick Nevern) quickly finds himself in over his head – cueing up a never-ending montage of dodgy deals, coke sniffing and bar brawling.

Charting the boring career of a real-life yob turned international money launderer, Paul Tanter’s hackneyed, embarrassing British crime thriller is mercifully short, but still 80 minutes too long.
