Competition: Win a ‘Rise of the Footsoldier’ 5-film DVD boxset

by Phil Wheat

To celebrate the home entertainment release of the Top Ten UK box office hit Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins, we have a copy of the DVD box set (includes all five films) up for grabs courtesy of Signature Entertainment!

WE ALL KNOW HOW IT ENDED. THIS IS HOW IT STARTED. VINNIE JONES STARS AS REAL-LIFE HARDMAN AND THE ULTIMATE GANGSTER IN RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER: ORIGINS. When a down-on-his-luck Tony Tucker lands a job as a nightclub doorman after saving the owner’s grandson, he will do whatever it takes to rise to the top of the game. Teaming up with Essex heavyweight Bernard O’Mahoney at the height of the 1980s rave scene, Tucker could do no wrong.

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.

As well as Jones, outstanding as fearsome doorman Bernard O’Mahoney, and Allen as formidable nightclub owner Dave Simms, the film features some of the cream of the crop of home-grown actors including Craig Fairbrass (Muscle) returning as notorious drug-dealer Pat Tate, Terry Stone (Rise Of The Footsoldier franchise) back as Tony Tucker, P.H.Moriarty (The Long Good Friday), Billy Murray (Eastenders), Michelle Collins (Eastenders), George Russo (Top Dog), the brilliant Roland Manookian (RocknRolla), and genius cameos from reality TV royalty Chris Hughes and the late, great Heavy D.

Directed by Nick Nevern (director and star of The Hooligan Factory and star of popular BBC comedy series Motherland), who co-wrote the script with producer Andrew Loveday, this is a blisteringly good thriller, 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.

Jam-packed with foul-mouthed and often hilarious dialogue, explosive moments of violence, and a gripping plot that tells it like it happened, 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.

Rise of the Footsoldier: Origins is available now on digital platforms, and on DVD & Blu-ray Box Set 6th Dec. It will also be released on video on demand 13th Dec, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
