Another in the long line of Brit hooligan/gangster films. This promised a lot with the great seasoned cast but story was usual format. However if you like the genre you will still like this even if it is not a Green Street or Rise of the Foot Soldier.

Read the book and Billy Evans and Hawk etc are all West Ham fans so why change to Tottenham..A few similarities to the book but the book is much better and why change a lot of it around..overall disappointed with the film..

Decent watch, predictable in places but not all by any means. Storyline was ok without being outstanding. If you like gritty british violent films this will probably float your boat. Acting isn't the best but hey this isn't Hollywood so don't expect it.
Like a lot of football films it has a hooligan aspect to it without actually seeing any football or stadia.

Really good film based on the book by Dougie Brimson. Id been waiting for this film since I first heard of it during pre-production.
It didnt disappoint. Great cast with Leo Gregory taking the starring role (still cant work out if he suits a beard or not).
Yes this film does have football links but Im really not a football fan and it made no difference to my enjoyment of the film.Top Dog isnt really about football, its about people. Its about how they deal with certain circumstances, its about how they deal with family, friends, reputation.
Also a great addition to the cast is the always fantastic Lorraine Stanley (London to Brighton, The Hooligan Factory)
Yes the film does fit into taht UK genre of Gritty, Urban Drama/Thriller but if you love that genre. The this is pretty much the film for you.

Its actually a good film,acting was decent enough to me.If you like Green Street,etc then its similar.

A bit overtop how all this violence never gets picked up by the police,but still its a film so who cares.

Good acting by big irish gang leader as cool and yet also pyscho aswell.

Good film overall I thought.

A film about some cockneys with a gripe, but we don't really know why. Just a lot of over acting...not kuch depth.

Poor film indeed. It tries to copy snippets from other great films and falls short, do yourself a favour and rent something else. Seemed over cockneyed but I am from the north...

Did anyone go see this at the cinema? I expected very bad things of Top Dog and was not disappointed. Look at the pedigree of the main contributors. Script from Dougie Brimson, hooligans ‘expert’ and author of several cruddy tomes on football violence. Director: Martin Kemp, ageing soulboy from the un-mourned Spandau Ballet, who moved sideways into clichéd gangsterdom. Leading the cast: Leo Gregory, most remembered as ‘Bovver’, the loser in Green Street who didn’t warm to Elijah Wood’s fresh-faced Yank (nor did I). Leo is the big boy, this time, Bill Evans, head of the Acton Casuals (AC), who foolishly takes on Ricci Hartnett’s vicious Mickey, who fights very,very dirty. Hartnett we all know and love from the horribly overblown Rise of the Footsoldier, which made a hero out of ex-West Ham thug Carlton Leach. Footsoldier looks like Hamlet compared to this. Don’t forget the soft-spoken, Bible-quoting Irishman. He is well frightening. The birds show some spirit and we get a birth scene, but it’s all fabulously awful, even by the standards of this genre. Sweet.
