Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins

Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins

​​Lock, Stock and Snatch superstar Vinnie Jones teams up with premiere acting veteran Keith Allen (Kingsman, Shallow Grave) for British true-crime thriller RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS, a brutal account of how real-life, hard-as-nails Falklands War veteran Tony Tucker came to be involved in one of the most notorious gangland murders in British history.

RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS is a must-see for anyone after an authentic crime biopic that hits like a knuckle-duster polished to a high shine. This is Blow, Essex style, and it will knock your socks off. Set against a superbly realised backdrop of the late 80s rave scene, with a pulsing soundtrack featuring the likes of New Order and Ultravox. A future Brit gangster classic that gives the likes of Layer Cake, The Gentlemen and Legend a run for their money.
