I.D. – ‘The greatest football film ever made’
I.D. is the greatest football film ever made. According to the makers, that is.
To be fair, it IS a decent football-related film, or rather a decent film about football hooligans.
But what sets it apart is its focus on ‘the generals’ – the orchestrators of football violence – and an ambitious young policeman’s journey undercover into their murky world of hard drinking, fighting and all-round macho behaviour.
The twist is that John, the main character, slowly finds himself turning into one of the thugs he has been sent to destroy.
