“I really enjoyed this flick. Perhaps because I always enjoy sports related flicks, or because I am a huge fan of Vinnie Jones, thanks to Guy Richie, or maybe because I am in love with Jason Statham, also thanks to Guy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut why I watched it in the first place was because I had always enjoyed The Longest Yard with Burt Reynolds, in fact the only flick of his I enjoyed, and was very happy to see a British version of the football classic. I loved the characters, the seamless transition from American football to European football, and the accents. Vinnie Jones gives yet another great performance, and it was nice to see so many characters return from Lock, Stock u0026amp; Two Smoking Barrels as well as Snatch (great flicks!).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI give this flick 4 1/2 stars, only because it didnu0026#39;t showcase u0026quot;Monku0026quot; enough for my tastes.”
