Critic Reviews of "Rise Of The Footsoldier"Time OutSeptember 07, 2007
The direction smacks of sadism, especially the obvious glee Gilbey gets from filming violent scenes in close-up and, in the case of the bloody shotgun-to-the-face denouement, in triplicate.Film4September 07, 2007

Fans of British geezer films would be better off checking out I.D. - this is best enjoyed after a night at the pub on DVD.BBC.comSeptember 07, 2007
Footsoldier doesn't so much pack a punch as leave you feeling violated and more importantly, robs you of two hours of your life you won't get back.Total FilmSeptember 07, 2007
The filmmakers' wide-eyed attempt to turn Leach into a living legend will probably rattle Daily Mail readers' cages; everyone else may find its stonking hard-on for real-life hard men slightly ludicrous.One People's ProjectSeptember 07, 2007
Gore-flecked rucks and bruising rumbles are the order of the day in this unflinching portrait of a demi-monde your really rather wish would stay that way.Empire MagazineSeptember 07, 2007
A peculiar but decidedly ordinary addition to the British thug genre.
