Product Description

British drama based on the true story of a Jamaican baby who loses his parents and is subsequently adopted and raised by an elderly white couple in London. During his childhood Cass (Nonso Anozie) is forced to endure racist bullying, until one day he takes matters into his own hands and responds to the constant taunts with a violent outburst. Cass becomes addicted to the buzz of fighting and soon becomes one of the most feared and respected men in the city. Unfortunately, his new way of life eventually leads to an assassination attempt against him. Cass survives but is left with an important choice - to fully embrace the violence that has shaped his life or to make a completely new start.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Mono ), WIDESCREEN (1.85:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Behind the scenes, Commentary, Featurette, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Short Film, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Dramatisation of the events surrounding the life of Cass Pennant; one of the best-known figures of the infamous West Ham hooligan outfit, the I.C.F. (Inter City Firm). Cass Pennant (Nonson Anozie, ATONEMENT) was placed in a Dr. Barnados orphange as a baby in 1950s London. A black child adopted by an elderly white couple, Cass was forced to endure constant racist bullying growing up. His pent-up rage exploded one day when he attended a West Ham game and becomes involved with Hammers hooligans as they take on a rival firm. Cass becomes hooked on the rush of the violence, as well as the acceptance and camaraderie. He quickly rises through the ranks of the West Ham hooligan element, later becoming head of the notorious Inter City Firm. As a six-foot-five black man in a predominantly white social group, he is picked out by the police during the government's clampdown on football hooliganism. After brushes with the law, Cass attempts to change the direction of his life by running a security firm. But old enemies are never far away. CASS is a compelling film about the intriguing life of its subject and charts issues of class, race and masculinity across a number of decades, showcasing the seismic changes in British life. Nonson Anozie ably carries the film and is well supported by Nathalie Press (MY SUMMER OF LOVE) as his wife and Nick Love favourite Tammer Hassan (THE FOOTBALL FACTORY), among others. ...Cass

One Mans battle with racism, being accepted and ultimately wanting to just settle down with His family.

Violent at times, but worth a view.

5.0 out of 5 stars well i wasnt expecting that ! 29 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
me and my husband like the football hooligan films - my husband had read some stuff about Cass and he wanted to know more- it really is a superb peice of work - writing / directing / acting it comes out on top.
really was a great insight into growing up as a working class black lad - at the same time i was growing up as a working class white kid in the north west, well worth watching, what a man.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent movie but dreadful blue ray quality 2 May 2012
By Fraz
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Decent enough football hooligan film with a soft centre and worth a watch if you enjoyed the firm, awaydays, ID etc. The film is 3 stars but the blue ray picture quality is appalling. I would not even give it one star. It would be poor for a dvd and is the worst i have ever seen. If buying the film, save your money and buy the dvd not the blue ray.

2.0 out of 5 stars cass 31 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
The script for this film feels like it was written by a 12 year old. There is no depth to any of the characters and you really don't care about any of them, they come across as typical thugs with no charisma or charm. Check out Alan Clarke's The Firm starring Gary Oldman and to a lesser extent ID from the 80s, they are still the best films of this, lets face it, limited genre. All the recent films just come across as bland imitations adding nothing new

3.0 out of 5 stars Hatchets and Hammers 24 April 2009
By L. Davidson VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Cass" doesn't really add much to the soccer violence genre of film. In my opinion it is inferior to "Green Street", another movie about violent West Ham United supporters.It lacks the excitement and adrenalin of that film, although there were several tense and violent scenes."Cass" is more of a biopic than anything , featuring the early years of the infamous hooligan, his time in prison and the years after he ended his football thuggery, prior to the attempt on his life in the early 1990's.The film portrays him as a family man,a leader and an organiser as well as a dangerous,violent hooligan."Cass" is watchable,but probably nothing you haven't seen before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deffo worth a watch 10 Feb 2014
By kurt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Right back to the midst's of football hooliganism and the issues they face living their lives 9-5, Monday to Friday before they strap on their Adidas, clobber, bats stanleys and dusters and go for a dust up. A great film this. If you haven't seen it and this is your thing then buy it. The mans actually a great geezer in real too.
