Rise of the Footsoldier in December

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Rise of the Footsoldier on 26th December 2007 priced at £17.99. This British drama follows the inexorable rise of Carlton Leach from one of the most feared generals of the football terraces to becoming a member of a notorious gang of criminals who rampaged their way through London and Essex in the late eighties and early nineties. It follows three decades of his life: from football hooliganism through to his burgeoning career as a bouncer, his involvement in the criminal aspects of the early ‘rave’ scene and subsequently to his rise to power as one of the most feared and respected criminals in the country. The story concludes with three members of his firm being brutally murdered in the infamous shotgun slaying at Rettendon.
