One of the best gangster flicks of our times, the plot is simple but bewitching excellent performance by Vas Blackwood and the rest of the guys, the film captures the British street scene with honesty, shot in true-to-scene locations a unique one of kind film, i see it doing very well in world over, a classic example of what goes around comes around and the true saying that a gangster once yields a sword, will die by one. The climax was fantastic with a good mix of natives and immigrant (even a Sikh) making a fantastic entry scene for the final fight. if not for the "always" underwhelming reception of the American press for good British films, i see this movie doing big business if a pending proper release.

The Synopsis for The Guvnors (2014) 720p
The Guvnors is both love letter and hate mail to the alpha male. This story's alpha is Mitch who lives buried in suburban London, having turned his back on his previous life of casual violence and intimidation as part of a legendary South East London firm. In the modern day he's the doyen of respectability and quiet confidence, but Mitch used to be a Guv'nor. This film holds a mirror up to Mitch and shows him the monster once again, buried deep in both DNA and psyche, desperate to break out and wreak havoc.

Gripping Gangster Tale!Reviewed byArunmozhi CholarVote: 9/10
Guvnors is a predictable "what is violence?", "when do men grow up?" type movie.
There is no match day aggro, any of that is just shown in brief flashbacks, so you'll be disappointed if you were looking for another The Firm or Football Factory. While we're on the subject, the violence acted out is good, well choreographed and mostly believable.
No, this is a tale of an old nutcase in retirement who comes up against a rising young nutcase, so far so clichéd. We're expected to believe that one guy (played by one of Rizzle Kicks lol) who inexplicably sniffs a lot and his multiracial cartoon character pyschos can become feudal lords of a half deserted London estate. The son of our antihero is threatened by a clichéd giggling blond loony, all weird head tilting and playing with knives, so the retired Guvnors firm are rounded up and pressed into action.
Are they saving their community? Participating in primal scream therapy? Mid life crisis? It's never clear, but the main catalyst is 70s songster David Essex, incredulously, flooring the sniffing gang leader in Britain's darkest pub then his later fate at the hands of our young Scarface.
I cannot buy the gang, it's leader, what they actually do (who buys their drugs, nobody lives there?), the sketchy flashbacks to "something" happening in the past...but to be fair Doug Allen does a fair job portraying the bored, uptight Guvnors top boy and we also bizarrely, considering this is London, get real life old Zulus top boy Barrington Patterson in his first geezer movie appearance.
Summing up - OK for a hungover morning or a sick day off work, but don't expect The Firm.
Doug Allen and Harley Sylvester put in terrific performances in this thought provoking film about a gang who control an inner city estate, but have the ghost and rep of their predecessors (by 20 years) hanging over them.
The story's twist is well constructed and changes the perspective you have on both main characters. Sympathy ebbs and flow causing you to consider your own life actions in a profound way.
Don't go into this film thinking your going to The Firm (new version) or Football Factory, The Guvnors has so much more. Dark in many parts and lively in others the realism it portrays is spot on.
Thamesmede is a perfect setting with a number of infamous locations on view. Indeed the pub is well known for having shotgun pellets in its ceiling.
