Green Street Hooligans, a Review - It seems it is unusual for a woman to enjoy this type of movie as the violence is extreme; however, when that violence is based on true events and is essential to the growth of the character it becomes easier to accept. The fighting portrayed in this movie falls into that category; it is something that young people often become involved in to demonstrate their power and it can only be hoped that they learn early enough that there is a better way to stand your ground and prove your worth. Director Lexi Alexander’s Green Street Hooligans begins with a brawl in the London underground but quickly cuts to Matt Buckner (Elijah Wood), a journalism student at Harvard, clearing out his dorm room; he...   [tags: Movie Review]
