Who?
Stephen Graham (vicious), Nicky Bell (impressionable), Liam Boyle (unhinged)

What’s it about?
Based on Kevin Sampson’s book about a youth spent running with a Tranmere Rovers firm, buying trainers, fighting, drinking and chasing girls. Carty (Bell) wants in with the crew, and when he meets Elvis (Boyle) he’s got it – once he gets the nod from psycho pack leader John (Graham). Some of the actors clearly aren’t Scousers, but it’s made up for in style, music, action… and no Danny bloody Dyer.

Movie bore:
The ’80s- casual shoe of choice was the Adidas Forest Hills.
