The Reviews for The Firm (1989) 1080p

An Ugly Tale, Performed Beautifully...Reviewed bystudiojudioVote: 7/10

Even though this tale of Grown-Up Gang Members is ugly, violent, and at times, shocking, nothing is more startling about it, than yet another brilliant performance by Gary Oldman.

Most people who follow Gary Oldman's works, will know that this is a role very far from the real Gary. Yet, as usual, he puts his entire being into convincing us that he is, in fact, a semi-psychotic with a passion for physical violence.

I recommend the film ONLY to SERIOUS Oldman-fans. Others will probably not like the material, nor the look of this dark film.

Gritty, violent, gripping....Reviewed bydash-wortleyVote: 8/10

Finally got to re-watch this British classic on the newly released DVD, and it's as good as I remember it in 1988. Football hooligans strive for power, trying to prove themselves before a venture with their teams into Europe. Gary Oldman showed what a talent he was as the lead character Bex Bissell, estate agent by day, Inter City Crew leader by night (and Saturday afternoons of course!).The film is relentless in it's progress, keeping you gripped, and you see the commitment the characters have with their commitment to the cause. All the actors play their part, and the only critisism of the film is at 67 minutes it's too short-you want it to go on longer, but all in all, it is a classic, and well worth watching. 8/10.

Kick it outReviewed byPrismark10Vote: 7/10

One of director Alan Clarke's last film. The Firm was a controversial film for the BBC Screen Two strand dealing with the issue of football hooliganism, a topical subject in 1980s Britain.

This film mixed football gang violence with the influence of Thatcher's 80s Britain. The rise of the Yuppies. In fact in the late 80s there was some evidence that the new breed of football hooligans were not skinheads in denims but rather aspirational young men who were smartly dressed.

The opening scene with the protagonists playing a football match features no actual football.

Gary Oldman is charismatic as Bexy a cocky estate agent by day with a wife and young child.

He is also the leader of the Inter City firm who has vision of leading the English contingent of hooligans in the 1988 European football championship which was a damp squib for the actual English football team.

Bexy has run ins with rival gangs especially the one led by Phil Davis. This is a memorable Screen Two film not only because of its subject matter, but it also contained many rising stars such as Phil Davis, Nick Dunning as well as Oldman. It also had a few people who became better known in soap operas.

The film was remade in 2009 for a cinema release but it's this version which has stood the test of time with Oldman's performance at the centre, Al Hunter's writing and Alan Clarke's direction.
