| NOT as good as ROTFS! However...
NOT as good as ROTFS! However... If you are interested in the now notorious story of the so-called Essex Boys, you will want to see this for completist reasons.

This film presents the relationship between Mickey Steele & Pat Tate/Tony Tucker with the ultimate build-up to the Range Rover killing in a way that ROTFS missed. That's because the narrative comes from the perspective of the 3rd member of Mickey's gang. This is a perspective which you can't help but doubt having watched Rise & which even this film admits with a post-script is a dubious account.

Documentary evidence aside, two questions arise: do we have some more great anecdotal evidence of their out-of-control behaviour? And, is this anywhere near as good a film as Rise?

Firstly, yes AND no. Despite the lack of Craig Fairbass there are moments showing Pat's traits which are memorable but NOTHING like the Pizza scene. Secondly, yes AND no. This film felt like a more artistically professional job but left me feeling less satisfied and entertained than by the gloriously over-the-top Rise.
