This is what a proper British gangster looks like. Based on his real-life autobiography, 2007’s Rise of the Footsoldier follows Carlton Leach as he evolves from feared football terrace general to a member of one of the most notorious British gangs that operated throughout the late eighties and early nineties. Leach had one goal, and one goal only: by the time he reached the top, everyone would know the name Carlton Leach.
