An all-out bare knuckle prequel to the iconic Brit crime thriller Rise Of The Footsoldier. Starring Craig Fairbrass and Terry Stone and a British dream-team ensemble, in a brutal and bloody real life story of Essex, drugs and rock and roll.
On the 10th anniversary of the release of the smash hit gangster classic Rise Of The Footsoldier comes this no-holds- barred prequel, telling the tale of real life Essex Boy Pat Tate, a man mountain with a hair-trigger temper, a serious fondness for pills and cocaine, and an unquenchable hunger for power.
The rest of the cast is a veritable who’s who of the creme de la creme of Brit gangster film talent, with the likes of Terry Stone (Bonded By Blood), Eddie Webber (The Firm), Larry Lamb (The Hatton Garden Job), Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake), Josh Myers (Bonded By Blood 2), Roland Mannokian (The Business) and Billy Murray (Essex Boys) shoving their lovely mugs onto the screen. There are also appearances from Big Brother sensation and bareknuckle fighter Paddy Doherty in his acting debut, and legendary Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder as a nasty piece of work called Mad Dog.
