Matt Buckner (Wood) is expelled from Harvard weeks before graduating when he's forced to take the fall for his wealthy roommate after cocaine is found in their room. He accepts $10,000 in hush money and takes off for London to visit his sister Shannon (Forlani) and brother-in-law Steve (Warren). Steve's younger brother Pete (Hunnam) takes Matt to a West Ham football match, where he's introduced to the violent world of the Green Street Elite, the gang of rabid fans committed to supporting the West Ham football club through bloody street warfare with supporters of opposing teams. Yank's eye view of the gritty nature of soccer hooliganism will leave you both fascinated and repelled.

Green Street Hooligans came out in 2005 with a running time of 106 minutes. Elijah Wood (as Matt Buckner) and Charlie Hunnam (as Pete Dunham) star in Green Street Hooligans. This movie was pretty popular and had three wins. Matt Buckner has just been expelled from Harvard. So he decides to visit his sister in England. There he is introduced to her husbands’ brother, Pete. The two hit it off and become good friends. Matt soon finds out that Pete is the leader of West Ham’s hooligan firm, green street elite. He soon learns to fight and to stand by his friends no matter what. This movie is rated R. I wouldn’t recommend this movie for children due to brutal violence and language.

Men, accents, soccer, and fighting... lots of fighting. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Green Street Hooligans. Six months after Matt is expelled from Harvard, he takes a trip to England where he visits his sister, Shannon. She is married to Steve and has a baby. Matt is introduced to Pete, Steve's brother, and is pretty much forced to hang out together. Pete is part of the GSE, which is kind of like a soccer gang. He introduces Matt to an entirely different world than what he's used to. Matt meets the rest of the GSE and they drink beer in the pubs everyday and get into fights with their rival "soccer gangs." Matt learns to be tough and how to fight. In the end, a huge brawl takes place with around 50 or more people. A main character is beaten to death, but i won't spoil it for you, and a family is forced to leave eachother.
