Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings series) presents Hooligan, released on DVD by Entertainment One on 20th August 2012, the hardest-hitting football violence film ever. Directed by Donal Macintyre (Macintyre Undercover - Chelsea Headhunters), this shocking film gets into the world of the football 'firms' like never before!
Narrated by Bean, Hooligan is the real story of football violence with footage from some of the worst hooliganism ever seen and revealing stories from ex-hooligans, the police, football authorities and former Millwall hard-man Tamer Hassan (Dead Man Running, City Rats).
Macintyre, who presented the renowned BBC programme Macintyre Undercover - Chelsea Headhunters which exposed the truth of football violence, shows how hooliganism has evolved in the UK and visits countries around the world, where football violence has reached terrifying levels. From Argentina where the Barra Bravas commit savage crimes, are tied to organised crime and have huge influence on the running of the clubs, to Germany and Eastern Europe where the football firms are connected to far right fascist groups - true football fans have seen their sport infiltrated by men hell-bent on violence.
We see that as the police and football authorities continue their struggle to manage hooliganism, technology and social media is now helping the hooligans share tactics and strategies, making the world of football violence more dangerous than ever. This real story is shocking and violent and Macintyre and Bean tackle the brutal reality of football hooliganism head on.
