Intense, ferocious and deeply unsettling, I.D. is an excellent examination of Britain's unsavoury contribution to global culture: football hooliganism. Whereas Alan Clarke's The Firm showed the violence that lurked behind a seemingly normal fa?e, I.D. posits football hooliganism as a feral temptation. Dedicated, ambitious undercover policeman John (Reece Dinsdale) becomes seduced by the violence of an East London gang, ultimately becoming lost from his regular life with his wife (Clare Skinner). Dinsdale delivers a measured performance that sees him spiral from committed, right-minded policeman to shaven-headed, Nazi-saluting monster, revelling in the violent impulses he embraces with glee and, alarmingly, becoming a hero amongst those he is infiltrating. Warren Clarke is absolutely monstrous as the leader of the hooligan gang, a paragon of bigoted hatred and the embodiment of John's future. Often unnervingly realistic, dir.ector Phil Davis is adept at creating riotous mob scenes that chillingly accentuate the world into which John is drawn. It could be said that I.D.'s premise is too thin, and that hooliganism is not addressed in an effective manner, but it is without doubt a chilling character study of the temptation of violence and the horrific influences that lurk in the heart of society.

+1 on that. I just bought it from Zavvi a couple of weeks ago too. Paid about £3.70. Never mind. It's worth twice that, at least. Much better than Green Street or Football Factory, any day.

brilliant film well worth the £2, i paid £6 more than 2 years ago and still watching it often

good film

Get your tools out Gumbo!!!!

Better than The Firm and also paved the way for Reece Dinsdale's part in Corry !!

hot +

yeah its a really good gritty film. i got this as a triple - Green Street, ID and Love, Honor + Obey for only £3.50 from CEX so worked out at around £1.16 each film, and ID is the best of the three.

Love, honour and Obey vs ID, both great films :thumbsup:

It's entertaining enough but pure fantasy and I wouldn't recommend it as being a realistic portrayal of either police work or hooliganism, not a movie I'd want to waste my time watching twice either. Silly ending.

The only decent movie there has ever been about football hooligans (and I've seen them all) is The Football Factory. Green Street is by far the worst.

I f*ckin love you Gumbo!

braw movie - foudn it for a quid a few years ago in some naff shop.
